Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the
release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1970 album
HOME by PROCOL HARUM. Released in June 1970, the record followed on from the
huge international success of the band’s debut single “A Whiter Shade of Pale”
and the superb albums PROCOL HARUM, SHINE ON BRIGHTLY and A SALTY DOG.
Hailed by many fans as one of the finest albums
released by the band, HOME saw the exquisite song writing of Gary Brooker and
Keith Reid reach new heights on pieces such as “The Dead Man’s Dream”, the epic
“Whaling Stories”, “About to Die” and more.
Produced by Chris Thomas, the album captured a new
line-up of the band featuring Gary Brooker (voice, piano), Chris Copping (bass
guitar, organ), Robin Trower (lead guitar), and B.J. Wilson (drums).
Newly re-mastered from the original tapes, this
edition of “Home” includes the rare American single edit of “Whisky Train” as a
bonus track and features a booklet with previously unseen photographs.
