With A Larger Back-up Band

The perfect setting for Procol Harum, utilizing a symphony orchestra to flesh out their sound (especially on In Held 'Twas In I). Plus it yielded at Top 20 single (once they got the plug side right). he album was also the highest charted Procol album.

Dave Bell and Alan Cartwright were able to join mid-crescendo (as it were).
