A Whiter Shade of Pale" is the debut song by the British band Procol Harum, released 12 May 1967. The single reached number one in the UK Singles Chart on 8 June 1967, and stayed there for six weeks. Without much promotion, it reached on the US charts, as well. The song was included on the original . release of the Procol Harum album, but not on the UK version. A Whiter Shade Of Pale.

The material was all already written (before the hit, in fact), but the group recorded the LP in just two days, simply to get a long-player out, and came up with one of the more pleasingly straightforward releases in their history  . In 1997, Repertoire Records reissued this album - retitled A Whiter Shade of Pale - in remastered state of the art sound, with four bonus tracks, including a pair of harder blues-based numbers by the band from 1967.

About A Whiter Shade of Pale. The first and most famous hit single of the early progressive rock group Procol Harum. and found on the album with the same name. The song was written in 1967, before the Summer of Love and became of its anthems. Procol Harum – named after a Burmese cat belonging to a friend of the group’s manager. It is believed to mean Beyond these far off things in (misspelled) Latin. But certainly there’s a journey going on, it’s not a collection of lines just stuck together. It’s got a thread running through i. .I feel with songs that you’re given a piece of the puzzle, the inspiration or whatever. In this case, I had that title, ‘Whiter Shade of Pale,’ and I thought, There’s a song here. And it’s making up the puzzle that fits the piece you’ve got. You fill out the picture, you find the rest of the picture that that piece fits into.

Paul from Eindhoven, NetherlandsThe Procol Harum version of Whiter Shade of Pale is still unsurpassed, but did you ever hear the Hollies cover? Eb from Fl Keys, FlListening to Glenn Hughes version of this song and loving it. In it's original and various interpretations it has a dreamy-trippy kind of fairy tale quality. David Lanz has a beautiful piano rendition of a Whiter Shade of Pale on his Return to the Heart album. Every song on this album was cut at a different European location. The music to this song is intoxicating.
