Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1968 album by PROCOL HARUM.

Released in the UK in December 1968, “Shine on Brightly” followed on from the huge international success in 1967 of the band’s debut single “A Whiter Shade of Pale” and the follow up single “Homburg” and built on the creative path begun on Procol Harum’s self-titled debut album issued in January 1968. Gary Brooker (voice, piano), Robin Trower (lead guitar), David Knights (bass guitar), B.J. Wilson (drums) and Matthew Fisher (Hammond organ) took the music of the band to new heights with this, their second album. Dominated by the 17-minute epic suite “In Held ‘Twas in I”, Procol Harum re-wrote the rule book of popular music with the material written and recorded for “Shine On Brightly”.

Newly re-mastered from the original tapes, this 3 CD clamshell box Deluxe edition of “Shine on Brightly” has been expanded to include the 1968 Mono mix of the album (released on CD for the first time) and 20 bonus tracks (9 previously unreleased) drawn from studio sessions, single mixes and three BBC radio sessions recorded in 1968, featuring 9 previously unreleased recordings.

This expanded deluxe edition also includes a lavishly illustrated booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and features a new essay by Procol Harum biographer Henry Scott-Irvine and also includes a poster.
