Esoteric Recordings has announced two new anthologies for the progressive rock pioneers Procol Harum.

Still There'll Be More: An Anthology 1967 - 2017 will be released as a 2-CD set and a deluxe 5-CD and 3-DVD box set, both drawing music from throughout Procol Harum's career.

The 2-CD set contains 29 tracks drawn from all of the band's albums along with key singles and includes an essay by Patrick Humphries along with previously unseen photographs from Gary Brooker's personal collection.

The eight-disc set has five-CDs of music including 69 tracks from the band's albums and singles, plus two previously unreleased concerts from the Hollywood Bowl in September 1973 with the L.A. Philharmonic Orchestra and a March 1976 show from the Bournemouth Winter Gardens.

Of the DVD content, (NTSC – Region Free) which features over three and a half hours of footage, mostly previously unreleased, disc six begins with a performance of A Whiter Shade of Pale on the BBC TV show Top of the Pops from December 1967 before moving to the archives of the German Beat Club series. All of the band’s surviving performances for the show are here, including the entire un-broadcast raw video footage of the band’s Beat Club Workshop studio concert from 1971, shorn of the visual gimmickry of the actual broadcast, revealing the pure performance on DVD for the first time. Disc seven features the entire sixty-five minute recording session of a performance for the German Musikladen series in October 1973, most of which was never shown on television. Disc eight features more BBC TV performances, including a rendition of Pandora’s Box from Top of the Pops in September 1975 and the band’s set for the Sight and Sound In Concert series in March 1977.

Also in the package is a 68-page illustrated hard-backed book feturing essays by Patrick Humphries and band authority Roland Clare along with the previously unseen photos and memorabilia from Booker's archive.
