Procol Harum - Procol Harum (1967)

"This is another one of those seminal proto-prog albums that is so instrumental to prog and music in general. One of those obligatory passages from sixties pop to seventies rock, along with Caravan’s debut, Soft Machine’s first two albums and the Nice’s debut. (...) Some of the tracks are silmply incredibly advanced for the times and still sound so solemnly beautiful nowadays: listen to Oustside The Gates OF Cerdes, Repent Walpurgis, and future hit Conquistador, to get a load on how great these guys were working as a unit and breaking ground with almost every track. To call this album full-blown prog is maybe a little quick, though: Kaleidoscope, Mabel and Captain Clack are tracks full of great psychedelic invention that even Floyd or the Beatles would’ve proudly called their own."
