Procol Harum: Live with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra

Richard Cromelin, Rolling Stone, 8 June 1972

If you're put off by pretensions of grandiosity in music, if all you want to do is get funky and boogie around, you've probably never been all that fond of Procol Harum, and this album isn't likely to change things. If, on the other hand, you're a confirmed addict and would rather skip the light fandango than just get it on, this fulfilment of all their leanings toward magnificence is as close as you'll get to a dream come true.
