Roger Taylor's Fun in Space. His first solo album. I think me and his mother were the only people that noticed, from what I can tell. Have always really loved the album though. My favorite voice in rock.
I am spinning this as I write this. It's a fantastic album. If Mr. Taylor committed himself to a solo only career I believe he would have reached Bowie like success and status. Bowie's influence is all over the album (or is it the other way around?). Fun in Space is a wonderful, eclectic and fabulously enjoyable album.

Roger Taylor's first solo album is a gem.

Speaking of Taylors, I'm going with "The Power Station."

Just listened to that and Living in Fear (the 1996 follow up) a week or so ago.  Phenomenal.  As is Palmer’s Riptide released In 1985 as well..

Excellent Rick!  Love that follow up disc too!  Love "Riptide" as well!

Give me Living Colour's "Vivid" all night long.

another album that has great tunes




Really hear Queen were influenced by Procol Harum...big time. Dynamics solos, classical bombast et cetera. Its not as simple as this but Queen were essentially a more poppy Procol with better hooks and more accessible. I can't think of two bands who melded Classical elements into rock as well as they did, making a very palatable sound.

Roger Taylor played on Procols later release - The Well's On Fire on the track Shadowboxed.



Brian May-


  Gary Brooker, what a voice, one of the best.

Had front row for Tull in San Diego in 1993 and Procol Harum opened. Booker sounded fantastic
