  1. 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 !

  2. 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!♡

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!!

  6. 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.

  7. Conquistador your stallion stands in need of company
    And like some angel's haloed brow
    You reek of purity
    I see your armour-plated breast has long since lost its sheen
    And in your death mask face
    There are no signs which can be seen

    And though I hoped for something to find
    I could see no maze to unwind

    Conquistador a vulture sits upon your silver shield
    And in your rusty scabbard now
    The sand has taken seed

    And though your jewel-encrusted blade has not been plundered still
    The sea has washed across your face
    And taken of its fill

    And though I hoped for something to find
    I could see no maze to unwind

    Conquistador there is no time
    I must pay my respect
    And though I came to jeer at you
    I leave now with regret

    And as the gloom begins to fall
    I see there is no aureole

    And though you came with sword held high
    You did not conquer, only die

    And though I hoped for something to find
    I could see no maze to unwind
