More Info:

This new vinyl edition of this classic album has been cut at Abbey Road Studios and utilises the gatefold sleeve design. Released in the USA in September 1968 and in UK in December the same year, '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 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'.
