Reply Nobody i mean nobody will ever make music like this ever again 60 n 70 was a time we will always cherish n hold dear god bless rock n roll n 2 all my brothers n sisters PEACE ! Reply Probably the most poetic rock song ever….. Reply Trower just tears up that guitar in this song! Reply I was 19 in '72, this great classic & Whiter Shade Of Pale,are the only two songs of theirs that I can remember hearing on the radio. But what two great songs to listen too!♡ Excellent work Mike!♡ Reply Listen to their album "Shine on Brightly " Genius. Reply Encore! 🔥 Reply I have not heard this in oh…. Sooooooo Long ! Reply Classic! Reply Great voice! Reply and though you came with sword held high you did not conquer, only die Reply I WAS 15 WHEN THIS SONG WAS RELEASED, I LOVED IT THEN AND I STILL LOVE IT NOW. !JUNE 2019 Reply And though you came with sword of iron.You did not conquer. Only die. The waves of history keep crashing in the same way…. war. Great video and the cd is great, as well along with all the rest of the p.h. music. Reply An absolute Epic creation!! Timeless Relevant meaningful Class!! Reply This band had a "presence" other groups could never achieve! PS Reply A Masterpiece. Historically inaccurate but superb music. Conquistadors did conquer and enslaved Mexico. Millions of Aztecs died at the blade but mostly of disease. Mercenaries who were very well armed and had tanks, ie horses. Reply There is no place on earth that has introduced me to more little-known but fantastic music than Munrows Retro. I knew that Procol Harum was more than a One-Hit Wonder re: Whiter Shade of Pale, but have come across little of their other work. This was outrageously good – thank you again!! Reply Im in my 40s and just heard this song for the first time yesterday on the radio on my way to work. I feel like it unlocked something inside me. Thank you, mr NPR morning DJ. Reply Conquistador your stallion stands in need of companyAnd like some angel's haloed browYou reek of purityI see your armour-plated breast has long since lost its sheenAnd in your death mask faceThere are no signs which can be seen And though I hoped for something to findI could see no maze to unwind Conquistador a vulture sits upon your silver shieldAnd in your rusty scabbard nowThe sand has taken seed And though your jewel-encrusted blade has not been plundered still The sea has washed across your faceAnd taken of its fill And though I hoped for something to findI could see no maze to unwind Conquistador there is no timeI must pay my respectAnd though I came to jeer at youI leave now with regret And as the gloom begins to fallI see there is no aureole And though you came with sword held highYou did not conquer, only die And though I hoped for something to findI could see no maze to unwind Reply wow, i had this ,i still might have it on album. one of my oldies. i'll by looking now:) Reply happy times Reply To the 'thumbs down' folks…read a frigging book once in a while!! Geesh. Rock on Procol! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
