Σύνθεση του οργανίστα Matthew Fisher, από το “θαλασσινό” άλμπουμ των Procol Harum. Ο τίτλος παραπέμπει στο ποίημα του Henry W. Longfellow [1842]. Το στιγμιότυπο της συνύπαρξης ροκ γκρουπ – συμφωνικής ορχήστρας παραμένει αξεπέραστο.

Composition of the organist, Matthew Fisher, from the “sea” album of Procol Harum. The title refers to Henry W. Longfellow [1842] poem. The coexistence of the rock band and the symphonic orchestra remains unsurpassed.

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

  1. I saw Procul Harum a long time ago. They didn’t play this song, as I recall. But, they played many other compositions that marked them as unique in that era of rock.
