Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing from Mobile Fidelity. Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI. Procol Harum stood apart for it's aptitude to blend classical figures with rock motifs without coming across as self-indulgent or contrived. Graced with commanding mood pieces, the group's 1969 album - appointed with evocative artwork that pays homage to the Player's Navy Cut logo - exhibits the band's distinctive talents and genre-jumping breadth with an idyllic fusion of performance, composition, and sound. Interspersed with straight rock, blues and pop items, A Salty Dog showed a slight change of direction from it's predecessors, being thematically less obscure. The title track itself was the first Procol track to use an orchestra. The album was the first record produced by Matthew Fisher, who quit the band soon after it's release.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Remastering is very well done but as mentioned in other reviews there is compression, although it doesn't get overbearing like many others . There are dynamics of the recording preserved .It is louder though .
Hats off to the team at Salvo that put this together .
This album is for everybody that has a Procol collection. It's writing is brilliant and the music is contemporary for the time. If you have never heard any Procol music now is the time to get started.
Now I'm an old Procol Harumite. I started listening to them and buying each record as it came out back in 1968, with Shine On Brightly. I used to debate with myself as to whether Procol was the best Rock and Roll band in the Universe, or whether the best was The Beatles. But really that wasn't a fair question, because it was comparing apples with exotic fruit. Both bands in their own ways molded my consciousness in ways probably impossible to explain, but Procol Harum was something special, something God-given for me. Their worst was better than most bands' best, but when they were at THEIR best no one could touch them except the Beatles.
