Procol Harum: Palladum, London

Chris Charlesworth, Melody Maker, 16 August 1975

IT COULD WELL have been two different bands appearing at the London Palladium on Sunday. The first was a shambling, incohesive bunch whose dull, plodding attitude resulted in a number of fans walking out, while the second was a revitalised unit grasping for a victory they ultimately won with a little assistance from the Palladium stage crew and the curtain closers in particular.
