Formed in the 1960s, progressive rock band Procol Harum are best known for their multimillion-selling single "A Whiter Shade of Pale" which is the most played record by a British artist of the last 70 years.

This book features exclusive interviews with band members as well as with Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, film director Alan Parker, former managers, DJs and many others.

It tells the story of their formation in Essex in the 60s, their split on the 10th anniversary in 1977 and their reformation in 1991.

This enthralling account details one of the costliest court cases in British music history whereby a judge awarded a 40% share in the copyright of "A Whiter Shade of Pale" to a former organist of the band.

The band's history is brought right up to date with details of recent album releases and tours over the last decade.
