A. As Strong As Samson (When Producer – Chris Thomas.

Despite their steady descent towards commercial obscurity, Procol Harum kept cranking out great music in the mid 70's. Case in point: "As Strong as Samson," a standout track from Exotic Birds and Fruit. The muscular and passionate protest power ballad owes some thematic debt to Bob Dylan, and for a Procol song, this one has a strong folk rock thrust to it, partly due guest soloist . Cole's slide guitar work.

As Strong As Samson by Procol Harum. Psychiatrists and lawyers destroying mankind. and stealing 'em blind. Bankers and brokers ruling the world. Storing the silver and hoarding the gold. Ain't no use in preachers preaching. When they don't know what they're teaching. The weakest man be strong as samson. When you're being held to ransom. Black men and white men, and arabs and jews. Causing congestion and filling the queues. Fighting for freedom the truth and the word. Fighting the war for the end of the world. Weakest man be strong as samson.

Why would the German release be issued before the UK issue? I know it says 1975 on the label on the 'B' side but the UK 'promo' copy stamped date says 23 Jan 1976. As a confirmation I also have this 'stamp' on my copy.
