Procol Harum: Live at the Union Chapel is a record of the final performance of the band's 2003 world tour, taped on December 12 before a small London crowd. The venue was an inspired choice. As a performance space, the Gothic church is at once both intimate and grand, a perfect mirror for the band's odd but cogent mix of bar-band boogie and classically tinged prog rock. The 21-song concert includes eight selections from The Well's on Fire, Procol Harum's 2003 studio album. Most of the newer songs are strong (particularly "The Question" and "An Old English Dream"), and the band, having honed its arrangements to a T, does an exceptional job of blending its recent music with its older material. Singer-pianist Gary Brooker and organist Matthew Fisher, both original members, lead the way through time-honored favorites like "Homburg," "Conquistador," and their immortal 1967 hit "A Whiter Shade of Pale."

The DVD's spacious but never murky 5.1 surround mix puts you right in the church with the audience. As usual, the DTS tracks surpass the Dolby Digital soundtrack, but with this disc the DTS format proves especially critical to an appreciation of the Union Chapel's gorgeous acoustics. --Michael Mikesell

"Procol Harum, Live at Union Chapel" displays superb musicianship seasoned by the world tour the group had just completed in 2003. Gary Brooker does a masterful job of singing and piano playing and the band is the finest England has to offer, original member, Matthew Fisher on organ, Geoff Whitehorn on guitar, Matt Pegg on bass and Mark Brzezicki on drums. Procol Harum's music should be much better known as there is no better progressive rock. The powerful beauty and richness, wit and good spirits of Procol Harum's compositions and lyrics by Keith Reid are a pinnacle of rock history and they haven't let up a bit. Some terrific new material from their excellent 2003 CD, "The Well's on Fire" is performed among such classics as "Conquistador", "A Salty Dog", "Homburg" and "A Whiter Shade of Pale". The digital video was skillfully shot in widescreen on high definition cameras, with excellent lighting, direction and editing. The sound quality is great and in surround sound you will feel like you are in Union Chapel on that memorable night. Don't miss this one and tell your friends, this is a classic.

There are very few bands from the days of my youth that continue to capture my musical interest, but Procol Harum is one of the few. With the issue of Live At the Union Chapel, they prove that they deserve to be numbered among the musical elite.
If you are reading this review, then you probably already have some knowledge of the band and a measure of affinity for their music. If you remember them only the way they were in their heyday, here is an opportunity to see that the band remains a vital unit. The production on this DVD is excellent, the sound largely crystalline, and the ambience conducive to the enjoyment of the kind of music the band plays.
I haven't watched any of the extras, but the quality of the performance alone makes this a five-star offering. There are songs from nearly every album except Prodigal Stranger and Something Magic, but the largest number come from their latest CD The Well's On Fire. My favorites are thrilling renditions of Shine On Brightly, Pandora's Box, An Old English Dream, Homburg, Simple Sister, The Question, Wall Street Blues, and of course A Whiter Shade of Pale. Repent Walpugis is missed, I'd have liked to see it replace This World is Rich or Good Captain Clack, but unfortunately it did not.
Gary occasionally trips over the lyrics and I think that Robin Trower is really missed on Whiskey Train, but those aren't really complaints, just observations. Overall, Live At The Union Chapel is a Procol fan's dream.
If you are a Procol Harum fan, and did not get to see any of the shows when they were on their 2003 world tour, this DVD is a splendid opporunity to see the band's "bookends", Gary Brooker and Matthew Fisher, working on stage together once again.

Most music listeners equate Procol Harum with one song recorded at

the height of the musical regeneration of the 60's. "Whiter Shade of

Pale" has been covered by 260 artists to date, little wonder, as it

lies at the pedestal of euphony and speaks to a culture and its

beginings.

Procol Harum belongs to the ages, as do Led Zeppelin, the

Beatles,The Kinks,Free, Cream, Traffic and many other inovators of the

genre. The difference is Procol Harum is still a living aeonian spirit

whom roams the earth changing, reinventing the past to fit the present

and plan the future.

For the average music fan, Procol's history begins and ends with

"Whiter Shade of Pale" a pity really, as this is a band who over the

past 35 plus years of its unceasing quest for the holy grail of

communication have managed to climb peaks few have reached.

From 1968's follow up "Shine on Brightly" containing the masterful

20 minute plus one sided vinyl take of "In Held 'Twas In I" through

2003's "The Emperor's New Clothes" from their 13th studio offering,

Procol Harum have repatriated time and time again those lost ideals

that make music so eternally exhilarating.

The Procol followers are a devoted lot, keeping the spirit alive

in whatever manner needed. Fiercely devoted to spreading the word and

anointing seekers with Procol mythology and idealogy that solidify's

their legend.

Procol Harum is one of the legendary classic rock bands of the last century.
Their magnificent all of time superhit "A Whiter Shade Of Pale" is considered as my favorite song for many decades. I read that John Lenon was amazed when hearing the song for the first time for its extraordinary lyrics and the superb Hammond B3 organ with the magic Leslie amplifier rotating sound. After those long years they performed this concert in London's Union Chapel. And what a concert!!! The music surrounds you magicaly and even songs which are not so popular or known to me are amazing.
Gary Brooker is like no one else...Warm, greatly performing, and highly carismatic. The great organ player Matthew Fisher is unbelievable...He's The soul of the band, shy and highly talented giving the band its exclusive taste.
Although reviews and documents show that Fisher was playing on a Hammond M102 which is also one of the high ended Hammond series, its sound is almost identical to that of the B3. The same M102 organ was also used by Booker-T and the MG's and many other prestigious bands of this decade.
This DVD is a real document for a great band sharing on making modern music history.
