  1. Where’s Procol Harum? It seems they get overlooked all the time, very unjustly. Their second album from 1968 ‘Shine On Brightly’ certainly deserves to be in the list, if not the first eponymous album, along with ‘A Salty Dog’ and ‘Grand Hotel.’ Can we get them on this list?

  2. Hi Doug,

    I have played Procol Harum in the past, usually on my ‘Progyears’ show, though admittedly they don’t feature that regularly. As I mainly feature acts who are currently recording and touring I guess that’s always going to be the case – though I’m sure they’ll pop up again at some point!

    Thanks for listening!


  3. PFM would definitely be on my list. They produced some superb albums. “Chocolate Kings” is a masterpiece

  4. Procol Harum is currently touring and putting on some great shows
