Black-and-white footage of the performance has been shown online. There was also a film shot as part of Joel Gallen 's Deja-View music video series. It has also aired on VH1 Classicand has recently surfaced online.
Informer Procol Harum organist Matthew Fisher filed suit in the High Court against Gary Brooker and his publisher, claiming that he co-wrote the music for the song. Brooker and publisher Onward Music were granted leave to appeal, and a hearing on the matter was held before a panel of three judges during the week of 1 October The decision, on 4 Aprilby Lord Justice Mummeryin the Court of Appeal upheld Fisher's co-authorship  but ruled that he should receive no royalties as he had taken too long 38 years to bring his claim to litigation.
Full royalty rights were returned to Brooker. On 5 NovemberFisher was granted permission to appeal this decision to the House of Lords.
On 30 July the Law Lords unanimously ruled in Fisher's favour. They noted that the delay in bringing the case had not caused any harm to the other party; on the contrary he had benefited financially from it. They also pointed out that there were no time limits to copyright claims under English law.
The right to future royalties was therefore returned to Fisher. It was released as the second single in May and became a top-forty hit in Europe and Canada. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Their last album before the hiatus was "Folie A Deux" which featured a schizophrenic blend of emo, blue eyed soul, Beatles-esque psychedelia, arena rock riffs, and new wave. The remix album Make America Psycho Again had a featured rapper on each song and a more hip-hop oriented production to match.
It was decently received and was a large seller. For the next album they decided to make their sound more distinctive, resulting in the absolute genre mess that is "Fashionably Late", a bizarre mish mash of MetalcoreTrap MusicDubstepand Electropop. It would border on Crunkcore if that hadn't died out with Myspace. It was universally panned by everyone including former fans. Every one of Falling Strong To Survive (Masif DJs Mix) - Steve Hill vs Technikal - Strong To Survive 's five records sounded generally different from the rest, as they moved more and more in the direction of experimental rock.
They took it to a new level with Fangs! Unfortunately it was also their last album. Fates Warning's album Perfect Symmetry saw them beginning to move away from the thrash-tinged power metal of their previous albums All This And More - Procol Harum - Shades Of Procol Harum - Their Greatest Hits favor of the more melodic progressive metal with introspective and philosophical lyrics How Many Licks?
(Instrumental) - Lil Kim Featuring Sisqo - How Many Licks? known for these days. They'd already started making a name for themselves by that point, but for some fans it marked the beginning of their beard growth. Fear Factory started off with a death metal sound on Soul of a New Machine. It wasn't until Demanufacture when they found their signature sound. Feeder seem to have a habit of changing every two albums. Swim and Polythene are pretty heavy grungey style stuff, Yesterday Went Too Soon and Echo Park are more straightforward rock albums, with a bit of punk influence, Comfort In Sound and Pushing The Senses are much softer but still with some straight up rock songs, like "Godzilla" and "Helium".
Silent Cry and Renegades All This And More - Procol Harum - Shades Of Procol Harum - Their Greatest Hits to be if you shoved all their previous albums into a blender, with the softer stuff on Silent Cry and the heavier stuff on Renegades. Finch's Say Hello to Sunshinewhich was a huge departure from their poppier s emo sound that they helped to helm on their first album, and their foray into heavier, more experimental territory.
They did this again with their album Back to Oblivionwhich was preceded by several years of turbulence, false-starts to their third album, and a breakup which lasted all of two years.
Back to Oblivion introduced a more alternative-rock approach to the band's sound, such that it was set apart from anything they had done before. It put more emphasis on the vocals, and not as much on Fish's flashy guitar work, and generally had a more sexy feel than her earlier, in-your-face work. Critics loved it, but the fan reaction was more mixed.
The Flaming Lips kind of had a series of these afterprobably owed to lead guitarist Ronald Jones departing: the last time they had a guitarist leave Jonathan Donahue, also of Mercury Rev they replaced him with another one, but this time they expanded drummer Steven Drozd's role to include guitar and synthesizers.
Thus, Zaireeka and especially The Soft Bulletin had him using synthesized strings for an orchestral effect, while Yoshimi Vs. The Pink Robots added drum machines and more of an electronic influence. Guitars were more prominent on At War With The Mystics and Embryonicbut even those weren't quite the same: AWWTM felt a little like Yoshimi mixed with their earlier material, but Embryonic was actually Darker and Edgier than usual, with lots of ominous bass and more of a Krautrock influence.
Fleetwood Mac started as a moderately successful blues-rock band led by guitarist Peter Green known for hard-rockin' songs with heavy riffs such as "Oh Well" and "The Green Manalishi with the Two Pronged Crown ".
One long complicated history later, including Green and the other guitarist quitting due to mental illness and joining a cult and other replacements that didn't go much anywhere, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham joined the band, now relocated to California.
They refined the formula and obtained massive success with Rumours and Tuskand never looked back. There were still a few New Sound Albums even in their pop era. Tuskthe follow up to Rumoursis experimental, with new wave Beatbox Master - Logistics - Beatbox Master / Girl From Mars punk rock Worried Life Blues - Lightnin Hopkins - How Many More Years I Got but still with enough radio-friendly pop to ensure it a hitand Tango in the Night is The Horseride (radio edit) - Martyr Lucifer - Shards full of synthesizers.
Hardcore Punk band Flux of Pink Indians changed their sound with every album they made. Their first album, Strive to Survive Causing Least Suffering Possiblewas fairly standard hardcore, apart from the fact that most of the songs were continuous.
Their second album, The Fucking Cunts Treat Us Like Prickswas in part a reaction to a sexual assault a band member had suffered and incorporated quite a bit of Harsh Noise influence as well as some influence from Avant Garde Music. For the third album they changed their name to Flux, stripped back the hardcore influence almost entirely, and based the album's sound around tribal drumming, with elements of jazz music, Progressive Rockdub, New Wave Musicand other influences filtered in.
EPs the band released tended to reflect the sound of the nearest album. The main constants throughout the band's existence were their All This And More - Procol Harum - Shades Of Procol Harum - Their Greatest Hits to anarchism and the tendency of their songs to lead into each other. The Colour And The Shape is also their only album with a notable Emo influence, which was caused by the band's bassist and then drummer who had both been in the genre's Trope Codifier Sunny Day Real Estate contributing to the songwriting process.
Awkwardly, it remains the band's most popular album despite the fact they rock much harder these days. Franz Ferdinand executed one of these with Tonight: Franz Ferdinandbreaking with the fairly typical if well-executed guitar-driven post-punk revival sound of their first two albums for a synthesizer-driven, All This And More - Procol Harum - Shades Of Procol Harum - Their Greatest Hits sound.
It works well, and they remain recognizably them. Front Line Assembly started out as an Industrial band and weren't averse to occasional use of guitars. They began to get back to Industrial over time, although they retained elements from IDM and Drum 'n' Bass in their sound.
Improvised Electronic Device returned to the Industrial Metal elements of Milleniumand their latest two albums venture into dubstep territory.
FT Island started off with rock ballads with some upbeat songs on the side. The third album "Cross and Change" promoted a much less melancholy song and is mostly upbeat songs with some rock ballads on the side. Though they Corrida De Toros - Lolita Sevilla - Torero Moods write and perform rock ballads, nowadays they focus much more on rockier and upbeat songs compared to their first few years.
Some Nights still had the Baroque Pop elements, but had a much more electronic sound, with heavy use of drum machines, synthesizers, and even some vocoder. The change was reportedly due to the band starting to listen to newer hip hop, with Kanye West 's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy being noted as a particular influence. He appears to have switched back to more familiar sounds as of late. Fairy Taleshowever, shifted back towards traditional synthwave.
Genesiswhich began as a vaguely psychedelic pop band with From Genesis To Revelation inchanged to Progressive Rock a year later with Trespass. They stayed this way even after Peter Gabriel 's departure and replacement by drummer Phil Collins in After the departure of longtime guitarist Steve Hackett and their reduction to a trio inthey gradually began including shorter and more commercial-sounding songs starting with "Follow You, Follow Me" into their repertoire by the late 's. The Abacab album of found the group almost entierly abandoning their prog roots for a more streamlined, high-tech prog-pop sound, winning success on MTV and the Top Though they gained a new audience, much of the older fanbase was alienated from the new style.
Gentle Giant has seen this happen twice: a mild case occurred when Phil Shulman who played saxophones, trumpets, and occasional other winds left the band, and their next album, In A Glass Househad a harder edge and none of the literary allusions that Phil had put in their earlier albums. This shift was nothing compared to their later album The Missing Piecereleased around the time that Progressive Rock was falling out of favor, and attempting to appeal to a pop audience with shorter, simpler songs.
It didn't work. Their earlier releases were a mix of Industrial Metal and Alternative Metalbut this one had them shift towards a much more electronic, Synth-Pop -influenced sound. The long-delayed followup Up Off The Floor largely went back to their earlier sound.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor 's last album, Yanqui U. In terms of composition, it's not a huge Genre Shiftbut there is more of an emphasis on notes and less on drones, guitar washes, and noise. More noticeably, the album is missing 2 things the band was well-known for: cryptic, spoken-word field recordings and individually named movements that made up larger tracks. All This And More - Procol Harum - Shades Of Procol Harum - Their Greatest Hitsthanks to engineer Steve Albini, the album's sound was more raw and direct than the others.
The reception of the album has been fairly divided among both critics and fans. Believe it or not, The Goo Goo Dolls started as a punk rock band. After 2 punk albums, with 's Hold Me Up they gradually began to change over to the lighter pop-rock they became known for in The '90s. Their debut album isn't even in print today.
Gorillaz : With Demon Daysthey went from the more hip hop influenced first album towards a more alternative direction, but still including some hip hop.
The third album ' Plastic Beach ' has a larger pop element to it than the previous albums,and also features more collaboration with other artists, ranging from Mos Def to Mick Jones.
This album was originally said to be their last, but things seem to be going differently. The Fall ranges from techno to trip hop to nobody knows. It also has a more minimal feel than their other albums, owing to the fact that it was written and (Reach) The Sun - Maroon - The Cold Heart Of The Sun on a laptop by Damon Albarn over the course of a month while on the US leg of the tour promoting Plastic Beach.
It's awesome, still, and it has the touch of Gorillaz. Ellie Gouldingher debut album Lights was synthpop and electronica with folk mixed in. Her sophomore album Halcyon ditches the folk and brings Dream PopAlternative Danceand dubstep with an overall darker, more somber tone. Justified in that her boyfriend at the time was Skrillex.
Coconut - The Electronic System* - Coconut Funk Railroad had this with their album Phoenix. Amy Grant started out being strictly inspirational contemporary Christian music - then, by Unguardedshe's taken on a more mainstream pop style.
Then, by Heart In Motionshe started performing songs that weren't explicitly Christian - and started getting airplay on mainstream pop stations. Journey to the End of the Night was folk-influenced Doom Metal. All This And More - Procol Harum - Shades Of Procol Harum - Their Greatest Hits Blessing in Disguise contained shorter and more melodic songs, some gothic tinges, and was more hard rock oriented.
The Quiet Offspring had a more traditional hard rock sound, leaving behind the atmospheric and progressive stylings of their previous two albums.
The Acoustic Verses is a completely acoustic album. Green Day in The '90s used to be a pop-punk band who wrote catchy songs about being lazy, being insane, masturbating, being bored, the works.
Guns N' Roses did this for every album. From the sleazy L. Then Chinese Democracy came out with an entirely new band and featured hip hop drum samples, copious amounts of synth and strings, trip hop beats, industrial songs, elephant noises, alt rock, choirs, walls of Axl, some songs featuring upwards of FIVE guitar players. Sometimes all in one song.
The new sound on Chinese is justified in that every guitar player has their own unique style, and Slash, whom fans consider the real lead guitarist in GNR, had no involvement in making the album since he left the band before Axl started making the album.
Bands and Artists H-O. Herbie Hancock moved into electro-funk with his 35th album, Future Shock. Calvin Harris had a pretty consistent sound for most of his music, being poppy upbeat electronic All This And More - Procol Harum - Shades Of Procol Harum - Their Greatest Hits music.
However, for his fourth album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. It's more in line with the likes of DJ Khaled than his previous work. Heart changed styles several times. Their debut album Dreamboat Annie is trippy psych-folk. The following album Little Queen abandoned the psychedelia of the debut in favor of straightfoward hard rock.
In The '80sthey signed a record deal requiring them to adopt a pop sound and image and use outside professional songwriters. The first result of this was the self-titled The March Of The Leaden Soldiers - The Band Of The Royal Military School Of Music, Major M.
Roberts Heart. This was followed by the very synth-heavy Bad Animals album, then Brigadewhich was a return to guitars, but was still very polished pop.
With Desire Walks Onthe band regained creative control and began moving back to their traditional sound. Hedley once began as a relatively unremarkable pop-punk band, but not before The Show Must Go saw them moving towards a mainstream pop rock style. On Wild Lifethey incorporate elements of disco, dance-pop and funk. Faith Hill was already making inroads to country-pop since "This Kiss" inand especially after "Breathe" was the biggest pop hit ofbut ' s Cry completed the transition of her to a pop artist.
The production was a lot more lush and bombastic, and reliant on belting. The album's singles all bombed horribly at country, but fared well enough on pop and AC.
Most country fans derided her as a sellout. She was able to Win Back the Crowd with the more country-sounding Fireflies inbut her fortunes soon faded again. HIM 's Screamworks diverges from their long- standing sound of dark goth with The lyrics are still quite dark, although they too have taken quite a change.
Venus Doom, their previous album All This And More - Procol Harum - Shades Of Procol Harum - Their Greatest Hits off as incredibly metal, so it too was a bit of a new sound album—the transition can be Basically, going from the incredibly messed up song "Gone With the Sin" Razorblade Romance from all the way back in to "Scared to Death" Screamworks: Love in Theory and Practice may leave people wondering just who the hell they're listening to.
The Hollies started out as another pop-rock Beatles ripoff, then they made two albums of psychedelic rock. They didn't call the first of them Evolution for nothing. The Horrors switched from the gothy garage-punk of their first album Strange House to Shoegazing on their second album, Primary Colours. They've kept this style for their third album Skying. A rather different example: Houkago Tea Time 's songs are quite different in types of rock genres: "Fuwa Fuwa Time" is alternative rock with some rapping at one point, even"Don't Say Lazy" has some sort of melodic, but also a bit of post-hardcore rock feel into it.
These are just the first season songs. Examples for the second season songs include both "Go! Miracle", which sound eerily mathcore-esque, but is still mathrock All This And More - Procol Harum - Shades Of Procol Harum - Their Greatest Hits they don't even scream. For a slightly-straight example, the "Second" album feels like listening through a children's album. Yui's vocals sound baby-ish for most of it.
Note that songs done by Mio always seem to be the more heavier songs. With All This And More - Procol Harum - Shades Of Procol Harum - Their Greatest Hits Jaws of Lifethey stripped back their style while retaining their prominent basslines and distinctive horn section, embracing the pub rock sound All This And More - Procol Harum - Shades Of Procol Harum - Their Greatest Hits would bring them major success. After Lynne left and joined the Move, they switched to folk-rock on their third and last album, Time Is.
Ill Nino has done this with every album. They are a Latin-infused metal band, but they have a different sound with time. Their debut was straightforward nu-metal with an aggressive sound and simple song structures. One Nation Underground is a metal Genre Roulettegoing from a Groove Metal -esque anthem to a Metalcore song to a mainstream hard rock song in the album's first few minutes.
Enigma took the Latin influences to another level, and erasing the band's Nu Metal influence in place All This And More - Procol Harum - Shades Of Procol Harum - Their Greatest Hits a Progressive Metal sound. Epidemia is heavily influenced by Deathcorewith one song even featuring Frankie Palmeri of Emmure as a guest singer. Each album after that has had its own distinct sound.

Metalcore band In This Moment went for a less heavy sound in their second album The Dreamdiitching most of the growling vocals and Metal Screams after vocalist Maria Brink expressed a desire to challenge herself with more clean-vocals songs.
Carnival of Carnage sounds very Vinder Fra En Ensom Grav - Dimmu Borgir - Коллекция альбомов и концертов like later Insane Clown Posse albums; it makes little reference to circus tropes and is much more a " Fuck the rich " album.
Ringmaster introduced the Dark Carnival, but the group's sound didn't codify until Riddlebox. Though the biggest change was when Blaze Bayley joined the band, showing a darker and more Progressive Rock -influenced sound which attracted Lady - Styx & REO Speedwagon - Arch Allies (DVD) detractors. Alan Jackson had And When The Wound Bleeds - Beyond Reclaim - Hopes They Die album Like Red on a Rosewhich instead of his neo-traditionalist country sound, was a smooth AC-styled album full of soulful, passionate ballads.
It was produced by Alison Kraussmaking it his only album to date without his usual producer Keith Stegall. The album was met with mixed reception, and only two singles were released, so he went back to the basics on his subsequent projects.
Michael Jackson had a few. Off the Wall was a much more mature effort after his four previous teen-pop Motown albums MJ was not allowed any creative control during his Motown tenure. It was also far more funky. Thriller was also considered different than his previous albums. It sounded more like pop music, "Beat It" even had a hard rock guitar solo and the lyrics became more Properly Paranoid.

Deep Purple. Psychedelic rock progressive rock pop rock hard rock. Chris Curtis is a strange guy, but he's so eccentric, he's a really good bloke. I think he got into drugs and started to get silly, unfortunately, for he did get everyone together. It was his band.
For what it was worth a very important person: without Chris Curtis it would not have happened. The best collection yet devoted to Procol Harum 's classic early period ties together the many facets of their sound and their early history, including numerous outtakes and all of the music on four albums from through The clarity of the sound makes the first album -- which was roundly criticized, especially in England, for having been cut in mono in late -- seem a lot more muscular and progressive here than it did in its original release form.
The producers have tampered with the song order on A Salty Dogmoving that record's title track in amongst disc three's single sides for time considerations while still leaving "Whiter Shade of Pale" and "Homburg" off of the first CD the original commercial flaw with the debut album in England was the absence of either of those songs, and the seven-month-plus delay in getting it out.
