MATTHEW FISHER shot to fame playing the mighty Hammond Organ as a founder member of PROCOL HARUM and co-wrote the most played UK single ever “A Whiter Shade of Pale”.

Matthew started in the music business as a member of Peter Jay & The Jaywalkers before joining Procol Harum in 1967 until he left the band in the autumn of 1969, and was soon producing for other artists (he produced ROBIN TROWER‘s first three albums of which the second, “Bridge Of Sighs”, went platinum in the USA).

Having released two solo albums in the ’70s and running his own much in demand studio, he recorded in 1980 “Matthew Fisher” which was released on Mercury, then in 1981 “Strange Days” which was released on the infamous Vertigo label. Now remastered and available digitally as well.

Reviews

This shadowy figure is best remembered these days for his invaluable contribution on Hammond organ to Procol Harum's 'A Whiter Shade Of Pale,' and the fact that it took several decades of serious litigation before he was finally granted a co-writing credit to this classic 1967 hit in 2009. Fisher's solo career continued on a fairly intermittent basis in the interim, and Angel Air's latest CD re-issue focuses attention on two of his unjustly overlooked offerings from the early eighties. The results veer much closer to mainstream pop than the classically inspired prog-rock of his Procol Harum days, with "Anna" and "Why'd I Have To Fall In Love" emerging as the best of a strangely affecting bunch.
