Song of the Day 3/1/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Sunday’s song is #514:

Procol Harum – Wreck of the Hesperus

Written and sung by organist Matthew Fisher, the centerpiece of this towering, haunting two-keyboard, proto-goth anthem is an anguished, minimalist fuzztone solo from guitarist Robin Trower. What a colossally good band. From the Salty Dog lp, 1969; mp3s at the usual spots.
