Esoteric Recordings is pleased to announce the release of a new re-mastered 2 CD edition of the classic album “Something Magic” by PROCOL HARUM. First released in March 1977, the album introduced a new band line-up of GARY BROOKER (vocals, piano), B.J. WILSON (drums), CHRIS COPPING (bass), MICK GRABHAM (guitar) and PETE SOLLEY (organ, synthesiser) and was recorded in Miami with producers Ron and Howie Albert. Although the album would feature a host of marvellous tracks such as ‘Strangers in Space’, ‘Skating on Thin Ice’ and ‘Something Magic’ and the Mick Grabham / Keith Reid composition ‘The Mark of the Claw’, relationships between the band and their producers grew strained when the Albert brothers rejected a number of other tracks written for the new album. As a result, Gary Brooker suggested the inclusion of a lengthy piece he had been working on with lyricist Keith Reid; ‘The Worm and the Tree’. This orchestrated piece would dominate a side of the album and was the first composition of this scale that Procol Harum had recorded since ‘In Held Twas in I’ (on the 1968 album “Shine on Brightly”).
