Buyer Beware 5 marzo 2010
Di Robert W. Belew - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Audio CD Acquisto verificato
As previously stated by other reviewers, this title is presented at the wrong speed
rendering it un-listenable and a worthless purchase.
This edition sacrificed quality as a space saving measure for to
fit in more bonus material.
The bonus material would be welcome as a second disc and all held to the proper
Pick another version until this one is corrected.
I wish I had listened to those other reviewers before I ordered.

Shine On, Harum! 23 marzo 2003
Di Alan Caylow - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Audio CD
1968's "Shine On Brightly" is Procol Harum's second album, and it's another classic Bach-meets-rock hybrid from Gary Brooker & company. "Quite Rightly So" and the title track are both Harum classics. "Skip Softly (My Moonbeams)" has a great ominous bounce to it. The gospel-esque "Wish Me Well" is another buried treasure from the band, as are "Rambling On" and "Magdelene (My Regal Zonophone)". Finally, Harum deliver the first of their two epic pieces in their catalog, the 17-minute "In Held Twas In I," a classical-rock suite containing 5 or 6 different movements, plus a couple of spoken word passages (Harum's other lenghty piece is the conceptual "The Worm & The Tree" from 1977's "Something Magic," but that's another review). "In Held Twas In I" is not for everybody---some fans say the various movements don't flow together too well---but I think it's a very adventurous piece, filled with lots of great moods & melodies. And, as one of rock's very first epic compositions, it's also quite groundbreaking. From start to finish, "Shine On Brightly" is another great milestone for Procol Harum.

One of my favorite groups of the 60s.... 6 dicembre 2003
Di Photoscribe - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Audio CD
Procol Harum was (were?) nicknamed "The Madmen of Rock", and they lived up to the name completely! They were like the Honoré De Balzacs of the genre, (the lead singer, Gary Brooker, even LOOKED like Balzac!) putting out an odd mixture of bluesy, organ and piano-driven, classically informed rock with lyrics and wizard guitar licks that had few, if any, equals. Since Procol's inception, Genesis is about the only group that even came close to sounding like them. NOBODY threw off the same rich aesthetic vibe they did.
This album, "Shine on Brightly", is probably where the group established their "madmen" reputation, putting you in mind of William Blake and Hieronymus Bosch as if these painters were musicians, with songs like "Skip Softly (My Moonbeams)" and the title song. The masterpiece on this album, (VERY William Blake-ish!) is the nearly 18 minute long "In Held Twas In I", an epic composition with passages like: "In The Autumn of My Madness" and "Twas Teatime At The Circus", capturing the full-on "Ship Of Fools" feel that they'll probably take with them into rock & roll heaven! (Or hell, where they belong!) The piece ends with "Look To Your Soul", a passage that snatches hope from self-induced despair.
Other tunes include "Wish Me Well", a precursor to their "Juicy John Pink" on "Salty Dog" with its ultra-bluesy guitar riff and Screamin' Jay Hawkins singing style; "Magdalene, My Regal Zononphone", a typical Procol number with gentle, classically influenced music framing very introspective lyrics; "Ramblin' On", a song that sounds like it should have been on their first album along with "Christmas Camel" and "She Wandered Through The Garden Fence".
For some odd reason, I've always liked Procol Harum. They didn't sound like anyone else, (until their pale imitations, Genesis, came along,) and nobody had the intelligent lyrical mode they had, with its study of faux madness and voluptuary indulgence. It was if Orson Welles had decided to become a rock auteur!
For all intents and purposes, this album, indeed, was the true bridge between their first album and "Salty Dog", with elements of both being quite obvious in it. One could do a LOT worse than discovering this group of non-conformist individuals who laid a lot of groundwork for the branch of music known as "art rock".

Another Procol essential 23 maggio 2000
Di Un cliente - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Audio CD
As an album, "Shine on Brightly" is somewhat of a concept piece. It seems to chronicle the fall and subsequent rise of an ordinary individual as he/she progresses through paranoia and insanity to self actualization and nirvanic bliss. This journey is summarized in the epic eighteen minute "In Held 'Twas In I." But, more on that masterpiece in a moment. Six songs of individual importance, beauty, and weight lead up to Procol's opus. Of these, my personal favorites are "Quite Rightly So," "Skip Softly (My Moonbeams)," and "Magdalene (My Regal Zonophone)." "Magdalene" and "Skip Softly" are particularly beautiful in their lyrics, which seem deal with the redemptive qualities of music and the descent into a dark world of insanity, repectively. For me, however, the true highlight of the album is "In Held 'Twas In I," particularly the "Grand Finale." The composition never really lags or bores (like most Art or Progressive Rock epics), and always greets the ears with new and marvelous sounds. The Westside reissue again features songs that are either previously unreleased, B-sides, or alternate versions. Of these, the cynical "Seem to Have the Blues (Mostly All the Time)" and "In the Wee Small Hours of Sixpence" are probably the strongest, although Gary Brooker does a nice job with the Italian rendering of the lyrics to "Shine on Brightly" in the rarity, "Il Tuo Diamante." All in all, Procol's second album is an exciting and magnificent Art-Rock production, worth owning not only for fans of the band but fans who admire intelligent lyrics and songwriting of a heightened quality.

This re-issue misses the mark on many counts... 9 giugno 2012
Di timorous - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Audio CD
Shine on Brightly, Procol Harum's second album, is one of their finest efforts. This was released in 1968, at the height of the Psychedelic 60's. Thankfully, they generally avoid anything trippy, and instead attempt to expand the frontiers of rock music, incorporating various classical elements with some rhythm & blues elements, which became their signature sound. This was also a time of experimentation in recording techniques. Distortion was no longer a dirty word, for engineers to avoid. It became a part of the sound of much rock music.

Unfortunately, the distortion and other recording practises (not to mention, various recreational drugs) could render a recording of poor quality, as is the case here. Although this Salvo release is made from the master tapes, the inherent gross distortion is all too apparent on a revealing CD.

They've also taken liberties with EQ, synthesizing low bass that wasn't there on the original. While this recording could stand to have a bit more bass, they've added a bit too much in this case. They've also used excessive noise reduction, to the point where the quietest parts of the music almost disappear. And like most CD's made these days, the dynamic range is severely reduced. This loudness war has to stop! This recording was already very (dynamically) compressed. The extra compression on this re-issue, makes the background instruments much louder, practically drowning Gary Brooker's vocals in some cases. Listen to an original vinyl copy, and you'll hear what I mean.

But the worst problem is the speed. Compared to all previous releases, both CD and vinyl, the pitch on this release is a good semi-tone higher than it should be. The lax recording practices I alluded to earlier, obviously resulted in the original mastering tape machine being (unknowingly) slower than the standard speed, thus seeming faster when played at the normal speed. Fortunately, all subsequent releases (except this one) have corrected this speed problem. If one knows exactly what key these songs are in, you can find the right pitch/speed easily enough. They obviously missed this point for this re-issue.

I would studiously avoid this re-issue of Shine on Brightly (on Salvo/Fly), in spite of the fine packaging and extra tracks. If you can find the 1997 re-issue on Westside, or the Repetoire re-issue from about 2000, you'll get a much better rendition, that hasn't been excessively EQ'ed, or compressed, or noise-reduced.
