You’ve Turned A Whiter Shade Of Pale! This Day In Music

Written by on April 4, 2021


4 April 2008, Procol Harum singer Gary Brooker won back full royalty rights to the band’s worldwide hit, ’A Whiter Shade Of Pale’ at London’s Court of Appeal. The decision overturned a 2006 ruling that organist Matthew Fisher was entitled to a 40% portion of royalties on the 1967 hit after he argued he had written the song’s organ melody. The court ruled there was an ‘excessive delay’ in the claim being made – nearly 40 years after the song was recorded. https://www.thisdayinmusic.com/liner-notes/youve-turned-a-whiter-shade-of-pale/
