A Whiter Shade Of Pale" was one of about 15 songs that he wrote for their first album. Says Reid: "We were really excited about it and liked it a lot. And when we were rehearsing and routine-ing our first dozen songs or so, it was one that sounded really good. But there were a few others that we liked I would say equally - we have a song on our first album called 'Salad Days (Are Here Again)' that was a strong contender. At our first session, we cut four tracks, and 'Whiter Shade of Pale' was the one that recorded best

The 2018 version of Procol Harum’s deathless 1967 pop staple ‘A Whiter Shade Of Pale’ by singer-songwriter Dylan Menzie, from the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island, underlined what an endlessly inspiring song it remains.

Procol’s original was a worldwide No. 1 with sales of six million copies. I think the new album crowns that, they can play something other than ‘Whiter Shade. There were minor US chart versions of ‘Whiter Shade’ by Cleveland R&B group the Hesitations in 1968 and . Greaves, the nephew of Sam Cooke, in 1970.
