NEW REMASTERED & EXPANDED RELEASE OF THE 1991 REUNION ALBUM BY PROCOL HARUM
WITH THREE PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED BONUS
FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK AND LINER NOTES
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a re-mastered and expanded edition of the album “The Prodigal Stranger” by Procol Harum.
The album was released in August 1991 following a fourteen year hiatus by the band and saw a reunion of Gary Brooker, lyricist Keith Reid, organist Matthew Fisher and guitarist Robin Trower. With assistance from Dave Bronze (bass) and Mark Brzezicki (drums), “The Prodigal Stranger” was a welcome return by Procol Harum and a strong collection of songs.
This new expanded edition of “The Prodigal Stranger” has been newly re-mastered and includes three previously unreleased bonus tracks; two demos from 1990 and a live recording of ‘Holding On’ for SWR Radio in Germany in 2003.
The release also includes an illustrated booklet featuring material from Gary Brooker’s personal archive and an essay by Procol Harum authority Roland Clare featuring comments from Gary Brooker.
