New musicians always learned from the veterans, and Procol Harum is one of the latter. Over the past 50 years they have been one of the most influential bands in the history of British music. Their debut album Procol Harum and second album Shine On Brightly are reissued now, Home and A Salty Dog will follow soon. Whether you're interested in Progressive Rock or not, these albums are a definite must have for every music lover!
Batmobile just released their first album in 20 years. Brand New Blisters is filled with pure & thrilling Psychobilly, these guys know how to rock! Off to the shop, where this album is now available as a limited yellow vinyl edition.
Next up is the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Bernie Worrell. Best known as founding member of Parliament-Funkadelic and his work with the Talking Heads, he was "the kind of sideman who is as influential as some bandleaders". All The Woo In The World is his heavily sought after debut album so we think a reissue is well in place.
Last but not least; New-age Funk and Soul band The Family Band led by Robert Randolph, according to Rolling Stone magazine, one of the "100 greatest guitarists of all time". A master on the pedal steel guitar. Give their new album Got Soul a spin, and you'll notice, it is very hard to listen to... without swinging!
Have a great weekend.
All the best,Music On Vinyl
Procol Harum is the eponymous debut studio album by the English rock band Procol Harum. Originally released in 1967 it now celebrates its 50th year anniversary.
One listen to Got Soul—the fifth studio album overall by this virtuosic player and the genre-busting Robert Randolph & The Family Band and first since 2013—reaffirms that they have truly evolved into one of the most exciting, innovative outfits in contemporary music.
Shine On Brightly is the second studio album by English rock band Procol Harum. The title of the epic "In Held 'Twas in I" is an acrostic, taking the first word from the first movement as well as the first word from a verse later in the movement as well as the first word from each of the three successive movements as shown in the track listing.
All The Woo In The World is the debut Funk album by Parliament-Funkadelic keyboardist Bernie Worrell, originally released in 1978. The album was pressed in limited amount and is heavily sought after by collectors.
