Grand Hotel is the sixth studio album by Procol Harum. Released in 1973, it signalled a change of direction for the band. Guitarist Dave Ball who had joined the band for their live album the previous year left shortly after the photo shoot for the proposed album's cover to be replaced by Mick Grabham. Grabham's head was superimposed on the front and back cover of the album on Ball's body.
American hard rockers who achieved stardom in the 1970s with constant touring and hits like "We're an American Band.
Grand Tour Album Artwork. That said, there are a few aspects of the LP that are a bit too familiar and/or unaffecting, leading to a marginal vibe. Specifically, select moments of the majorly splendid Roman Stone evoke moments of The Underfall Yard and Curator of Butterflies too closely, while Theodora in Green and Gold channels The First Rebreather with equal weight. Grand Tour ranks just below is immediate precursors, but that’s really more of a testament to the brilliance of those outings than it is a disparagement of this one. Even at its safest and most expectable points, the work still radiates the troupe’s unique artistry in staggeringly satisfying ways.
