Matthew Fisher - Song Without Words




Matthew Fisher - Song Without Words (Matthew Fisher) RCA LP APL1 0325 - 1974

La primera grabación de Matthew Charles Fisher (Addiscombe, Croydon, UK, 1946) fué un single con The Gamblers en 1965. Pero su característico organo permanecerá por toda la eternidad en la memoria colectiva de varias generaciones gracias al mítico primer single de Procol Harum, "A Whiter Shade Of Pale". Abandonó el grupo en 1969 tras su tercer LP "A Salty Dog", disco que también produjo, para luego seguir una errática e irregular carrera en solitario, salpicada de sesiones para gente tan variada como Joe Cocker, Wishbone Ash, Screaming Lord Sutch, Jerry Lee Lewis, Captain Sensible o Downliners Sect, y producciones para artistas tan lejanos entre sin como Robin Trower o Tir na Nog.

"Song Without Words" es una agridulce y hermosa canción de su segundo LP en solitario, "I'll Be There", publicado por RCA en 1974. Un gran instrumental que cualquier letra mancillaría, marcado por ese clásico sonido de órgano, y acompañado por una batería spectoriana y unos violínes en su punto. Servir, preferentemente, en esos ciertos momentos melancólicos y de nostagia irreparable.

The first recording of Matthew Charles Fisher (Addiscombe, Croydon, UK, 1946) was a single with The Gamblers in 1965. But his characteristic organ sound will eternally remain in several generations collective memory thanks to Procol Harum's mythical first single "A Whiter Shade Of Pale". He quit the band in 1969 after their third LP "A Salty Dog", which he also produced, and then followed an erratic and irregular solo career, interspersed with session work for people as diverse as Joe Cocker, Wishbone Ash, Screaming Lord Sutch, Jerry Lee Lewis, Captain Sensible or Downliners Sect, and productions for artists as different as Robin Trower o Tir na Nog.

"Song Without Words" is a sweet & sour and beautiful song taken from his second solo LP "I'll Be There", released by RCA in 1974. A great instrumental which would surelly be spoilt by any lyrics, underlined by that clasical organ sound, and backed by some spectoresque drums and some violins with the right measure. Serve, preferably, in those certain moments of melancholy and irreparable nostagia.
