MATTHEW FISHER - Matthew Fisher (1979) & Strange Days (1981) [2000]

Matthew Charles Fisher is an English musician, songwriter and producer. He is best known for playing the Hammond organ on the 1967 single "A Whiter Shade of Pale" by Procol Harum, for which he subsequently won a songwriting credit.

Digitally remastered edition of 2 original albums on a single CD. After a 3 year stint as Procol Harum's keyboard player (which included the recording of "A Whiter Shade of Pale") Fisher went on to produce Robin Trower's first three solo albums before he released his own in 1973. Both "Matthew Fisher" and 1981's "Strange Days" reveal that Fisher's talents as a keyboard player stretch far beyond that of Procol Harum's realm, while demonstrating his ability to write as well. Matthew Fisher employed Rod Argent on background vocals and session man Tim Renwick on guitar (Ace, David Bowie, Elton John). This album focuses more attention on Fisher's Hammond organ prowess than "Strange Days", while the songs are engulfed in a sturdier rock (and soft rock) habitat as well.
