On March 23, Procol Harum released an eight-disc box set chronicling the band's history both in the studio and live.
The one person who has been there for that entire history is lead singer Gary Brooker. Brooker and Robin Trower came from the band the Paramounts, who had a couple of minor hits in Britain in the early-60's before forming Procul Harum in 1966.
The new band had a major international hit with their first single, "A Whiter Shade of Pale" and led the way in the incorporation of symphony accompaniment with progressive rock music.
Procol Harum continues to record new material including last year's Novum.
