Procol Harum: Procol's Ninth

Bud Scoppa, Rolling Stone, 9 October 1975

PROCOL HARUM, down to delusions of grandeur after losing key members (like Robin Trower and Matthew Fisher) and running desperately low on ideas has been rescued in the nick of time by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, who have just taken over as producers. Despite the symphonic allusion in the title, Procol's Ninth is the hardest, grittiest recording the band has made in years.
