Day 15: Procol Harum - A Salty Dog (1969)

I was first introduced to the title track by Transatlantic who covered it on their Whirlwind album, featuring my favorite dude in the world (Mike Portnoy) on vocals. Glad they did, as it led me to a pretty awesome album I may not have heard of otherwise.

A great album by a great early prog rock band. The title track starts this album off amazingly, with a piano and string-laden story of being at sea. Really an amazing song. The rest of the album is a bit more in the vein of 60s rock with some occasional prog touches. Overall a very solid album, looking forward to hearing more from them.
