From Shadow to Shadow

Review Gary Brooker [UK]

The latest Palers' Project 'From Shadow to Shadow' is stuffed with gems – not tribute band homage but original treatments, sometimes off the wall – sometimes massive, but always with real imagination and musicianship.

Impassioned Italians, growling Americans, guitars that sound more like Trower than Trower – cheeky comedy, churning Salty Dogs, versatile families, until the whole becomes larger than the sum of the parts.

Forty songs – more than seventy musicians and singers from across the straits and around the Horn – a very worthy follow-up to 'Thru the Looking Glass'.

As far as having this in your collection the asking price is worth every penny just to have Conquistador by Conjunto Jardํn – one of the most appealing 'covers' of Procol I've ever heard.

Get it now or never know what you missed.

To be listened to in the spirit ...

Gary Brooker, Surrey, Procol Harum 2004
