W ith the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra in tow, Procol Harum released their first live album and scored a surprise hit (I was surprised anyway) with their live version of “Conquistador.” As ELO could tell you, finding a balance between orchestral pomp and pop music isn’t easy, and as good a song as it is, “Conquistador” in person isn’t nearly as impressive. The same could be said for “A Salty Dog,” where again the audience waits until the end to applaud, as if unsure whether they’re at a rock concert or a classical performance. With pretentious offspring like this, it’s no wonder many critics grew tired of the prog movement.
