PROCOL HARUM A Whiter Shade Of Pale DERAM 45

A Whiter Shade Of Pale b/w Lime Street Blues
Deram #45 DEM 7507

Released in May 1967, “A Whiter Shade Of Pale” was an instant smash hit worldwide with its beautiful melodic organ passages, psychedelic lyrical imagery and a soulful vocal by Gary Brooker. Though the song appeared on the U.S. version of Procol Harum’s eponymous debut album, the British LP left the song off altogether making it available on a 45 single only with another non-LP song on the b-side called “Lime Street Blues.”
