"For Liquorice John", with its uneven rhythm and haunting lyrics about death, is an homage to Jim Mundy, an old-time friend from the band's genesis in the early sixties. Mundy had committed suicide in 1972. In the early 1960s, several of the musicians that would form Procol Harum were members of R&B band The Paramounts - a name given them by their manager. Mundy had objected to this name, and suggested one of his own for them, "Liquorice John Death". After Mundy's suicide, among his possessions was found a painting of a cover for a non-existent "Liquorice John Death" album."
