“Procol Harum was one of my favorite bands. //We kind of started out together in a way on this very exclusive label called Deram back in the ’60s. My drummer Barry went to join them so he actually played on ‘Whiter Shade of Pale,’ which I think is one of the best pop songs ever. They wrote some great songs and I wanted to sing something that respected their repertoire and I don’t know why but it was something that happened in Kansas when I was traveling. This was kind of apt for me and it reflected some of my memories.” Cat Stevens til magasinet Spin
Cat Stevens, der også kalder sig Yusuf Islam er aktuel med en ny plade, hvor han blandt andet har genindspillet en sang af det navnkundige orkester Procol Harum, der af en eller anden mærkelig grund er gledet lidt i g(l)emmebogen i disse år… Det er også en passende lejlighed til at hive dette fortrinlige tresserband frem i lyset igen.
