Someone has noted my spelling of Procul Harun on the Birdcage list. It’s how Rikki billed them:


And I believe it should have been the way their name was spelled until it came out with M on the record – can anyone confirm that?

  1. According to Wikipedia, their manager named them after Gus Dudgeon’s pet cat, named Procul Harun .. but doesn’t say why it was changed. maybe the record company thought Procul Harum sounded better commercially ? ..
