Simple Sister

If you have been following this blog at all you probably think I'm a complete folkie and never listen to rock. Well, not quite. Here is a number by my favorite band from the sixties/seventies, Procol Harum. Pay attention to the late B.J. Wilson. He seems so much the perfect nerd that it's easy to miss the fact that he was one of the greatest drummers in the business.

While Youtube is loaded with videos of Procol's big soft hits like A Whiter Shade Of Pale and A Salty Dog, a lot of the hard rockers are missing. I would love to see Power Failure (with BJ on drums), Drunk Again, and Nothing But The Truth. (There is a version of Nothing on Youtube, but Sir Gary Brooker screw up the lyrics somethng fierce.)
