4 stars Maybe this is the most "famous" or "known" of all Procol Harum`s albums. It was the last album released with Matthew Fisher and David Knights in the line-up. This album has songs not only composed by Brooker/Reid or only sung by Brooker. "Boredom", "Wreck of the Hesperus" and "Pilgrim`s Progress" have songwriting contributions and lead vocals by Matthew Fisher. "Wreck of the Hesperus" (one of the best of this album) has a very good orchestral arrangement and piano by Fisher. Robin Trower sings and co-writes "Crucifiction lane". "Juicy John Pink" is a blues duet sung by Brooker (who also plays harmonica) with Trower on guitar."A Salty dog" and "All this and more" also have orchestral arrangements (by Brooker). B.J. Wilson plays drums as good as always.All the musicians also played instruments in some songs which were not their "usual" instruments, as the sleeve credits say.One of the best songs is "The Devil Came from Kansas", with lead guitar by Trower. The song "A Salty Dog" is one of the most known songs of the band, with "A Whiter shade of Pale" and "Homburg". A very good album. Produced by Matthew Fisher, who in the 70s also recorded some solo albums, and also produced albums for other musicians.
