A nice varied set list with a balance of old and new and little crossover with their classic live album In Concert With The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. It’s also got THE song.
Playing on the album are:
Gary Brooker – vocals and piano
Geoff Whitehorn – guitar
Josh Phillips – organ
Matt Pegg – bass guitar
Mark Brzezicki- drums
This is an excellent live album with a terrific performance by band and with the orchestra fitting in extremely neatly. Highly recommended.

The Best Live Albums Of All Time
I consider Procol Harum to be on the boundary of prog rock and art rock. Does this album deserve to be highly ranked in either or both of these polls?
Please vote in the poll to find the best art rock live albums.
Please also vote in the poll to find the best prog rock live albums.
Because there are so many great progressive rock live albums I have split the poll into two and you may find some of your favourites in the second division. Albums will be promoted when they get enough votes.Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
