A Salty Dog is the 3rd studio album by English progressive rock
band Procol Harum, originally released in 1969. The album has an
ostensibly nautical theme, as indicated by its cover (a pastiche of the
famous Player’s Navy Cut cigarette pack).
A Salty Dog
showed a slight change of direction from its predecessors, being
thematically less obscure. The title track itself was their first track
with an orchestra, as would be referred to in the live album performance
some three years later.
In his retrospective review, Bruce Eder
of AllMusic wrote, “This album was where they showed just how far their
talents extended across the musical landscape, from blues to R&B to
classical rock. In contrast to their hastily recorded debut, or its
successor, done to stretch their performance and composition range”,
calling the title track “one of the finest songs ever to come from
Procol Harum and one of the best pieces of progressive rock ever heard”.
