Procol Harum Exotic Birds And Fruit Expanded edition 3CD
An expanded triple CD edition of Procol Harum’s 1974 studio release Exotic Birds And Fruit.
 
The album was the product of a series of recording sessions beset by power cuts during the winter of 1973. Despite having to work around these difficult conditions, Exotic Birds And Fruit would prove to be another fine collection of material written by Gary Brooker and lyricist Keith Reid.
 
This 2018 edition includes the original album (with two bonus tracks), along with two additional discs featuring the band’s entire performance for BBC Radio One’s In Concert show from March 1974 and a previously unreleased 65 minute live set recorded at January Sound Studios in Dallas on July 5th 1974 for KZEW FM.
 
The release also includes an illustrated booklet featuring material from Gary Brooker’s personal archive and an essay by Procol Harum authority Roland Clare featuring comments from Gary Brooker.
