Music today has stayed in 1967 and because Paul mentioned it today. The other week in the archive I was listening to a later Procol Harum album (Something Magic, 1977), well today it was their first album. A Whiter Shade Of Pale is their most famous song and most of the world and particularly a certain age group know it well. Others heard it later because it endured, became a classic and was played on the radio often. Nowadays with the bombardment of music and remembering that 1967 was 53 years ago, it might be remembered like the parents remembered Glen Miller’s Moonlight Serenade but the generation dies and the next generation moves on. This is just one song, that didn’t even make it to the album in the UK, what chance does the album have of being discovered? Make sure you are one of those that doesn’t let this one turn to dust.
