Cube reissued two of Procol Harum's best early albums, Shine On
Brightly and Home, as a double-LP set in 1972. There is certainly some
good music on this set, but this isn't necessarily the way to acquire
it. The original vinyl LPs had better fidelity and packaging, while
subsequent CD reissues had improved audio and packaging, making those
editions preferable to this set.
Thomas Erlewine - All Music Guide
Shine On Brightly is the second studio album by English rock band Procol
Harum, released in 1968 by record labels Regal Zonophone and A&M.
It is considered an early example of progressive rock.
Shine On Brightly was released in September 1968 by record labels Regal
Zonophone and A&M. The original British and North American versions
of the opening two tracks ("Quite Rightly So" and "Shine On Brightly")
are different versions. The album was reissued several times, including a
2009 remaster using the original 2-track stereo masters and featuring
bonus B-sides and alternate takes. However, many of the tracks are
played at a higher speed.
Upon its release, Jim Miller, writing for Rolling Stone, was
unfavourable: "Procol Harum's first release was generally more
satisfying, especially since this new album displays little in the way
of startling growth – the group has apparently chosen to refine their
old approach and the musical result, while usually listenable, is not
Shine On Brightly was influential in the development of progressive rock
by breaking pop and rock music standards with the 17-minute epic "In
Held 'Twas in I", which marked the beginning of the lengthy progressive
rock suites that would occur later in the 1970s.
