The Long Goodbye (The Symphonic Music of Procol Harum) was released in 1995. Strictly speaking, this is not a Procol Harum album; it was produced by Gary Brooker with various guest musicians many of whom are or were members of Procol Harum. For example, Robin Trower and Matthew Fisher appear on only one track – "Repent Walpurgis," which Fisher composed. Unlike all the other songs on the album, the title track has never been officially released by Procol Harum

Procul harum never gets old. this album is great . tom jones performs simple sister. I guess for the purest it would not be liked. One person found this helpful. Procol Harum's music has always had a rich spiritual dimension and that dimension is enhanced in the hands of the right musicians.
