Friday Afternoon Classic Jam: Procol Harum, ‘Whaling Stories’ (Live in Denmark 2006)

Shalimar, the trumpets chorused
Music • Views: 15,507

This lesser-known song from the album “Home” was always one of my favorite Procol Harum epics, and this live performance from Denmark in 2006 is actually a big improvement over the original album version, with a symphony orchestra and choir adding to the mix beautifully. I’m pretty sure some parts were overdubbed and fixed later, but who cares — the music is glorious.

Procol Harum - Whaling Stories // Denmark - 2006
Procol Harum: Gary Brooker, Keith Reid, Matthew Fisher, Robin Trower…

Pailing well after sixteen days, a mammoth task was set
Sack the town, and rob the tower, and steal the alphabet
Close the door and bar the gate, but keep the windows clean
God’s alive inside a movie! watch the silver screen!

Rum was served to all the traitors; pygmies held themselves in check
Bloodhounds nosed around the houses, down dark alleys sailors crept
Six bells struck, the pot was boiling - soup spilled out on passers-by
Angels mumbled incantations, closely watched by God on high

Lightning struck out - fire and brimstone! boiling oil and shrieking steam!
Darkness struck with molten fury, flashbulbs glorified the scene
Not a man who had a finger, not a man who could be seen
Nothing called (not name nor number) - echo stormed it’s final scream

Daybreak washed with sands of gladness, rotting all it rotted clean
Windows peeped out on their neighbors, inside fireside bedsides gleam
Shalimar, the trumpets chorused, angels wholly all shall take
Those alive will meet the prophets, those at peace shall see their wake

Procol Harum Live in Denmark 2006: “A Whiter Shade of Pale”

An incredible arrangement that begins with the main theme beautifully stated in a minor key by the string section. I suspect the lead vocal was subtly auto-corrected at a few points, but it’s still a masterful performance from Gary Brooker in a great setting.

Thursday Jam: Mark Knopfler - Sailing to Philadelphia

A world away from the coaly Tyne
Music • Views: 21,249

I’ve always loved this Mark Knopfler song about a couple of surveyors named Mason and Dixon, and even without James Taylor singing the counterpart this live performance is a gem. From the album Sailing to Philadelphia.

I am Jeremiah Dixon
I am a Geordie boy
A glass of wine with you, sir
And the ladies I’ll enjoy
All Durham and Northumberland
Is measured up by my own hand
It was my fate from birth
To make my mark upon the earth

He calls me Charlie Mason
A stargazer am I
It seems that I was born
To chart the evening sky
They’d cut me out for baking bread
But I had other dreams instead
This baker’s boy from the west country
Would join the Royal Society

We are sailing to Philadelphia
A world away from the coaly Tyne
Sailing to Philadelphia
To draw the line
A Mason-Dixon Line

Now you’re a good surveyor, Dixon
But I swear you’ll make me mad
The West will kill us both
You gullible Geordie lad
You talk of liberty
How can America be free
A Geordie and a baker’s boy
In the forests of the Iroquois

Now hold your head up, Mason
See America lies there
The morning tide has raised
The capes of Delaware
Come up and feel the sun
A new morning has begun
Another day will make it clear
Why your stars should guide us here

We are sailing to Philadelphia
A world away from the coaly Tyne
Sailing to Philadelphia
To draw the line
A Mason-Dixon Line

Just came across this gorgeous live performance of one of Emmylou Harris’s best songs, with Mark Knopfler on guitar. (The aspect ratio of the video is a bit stretched out vertically but the sound is great.)

I’ve been watching these Bob Schneider Saxon Pub videos for a while and I just realized it’s time I posted one, because it’s always a privilege to see an artist honing the edge on his songs in a live setting.

I’ve always found it pretty impressive that Richie Kotzen can play this style without a pick.
