ORIGINAL FRENCH STEREO PRESSING WITHN LAMINATED SLEEVEAn album by one of Britain's most eclectic and often misunderstood recording artist, singer / composer Arthur Brown and his first outfit appropriately called The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, which to this day remains as one of the greatest early Prog / Psychedelic albums ever recorded. The group was basically a trio and included the brilliant organist Vincent Crane and drummer Drachen Theaker, Bassist Sean Nicholas was used during the recording of the album, which also included brilliant orchestral arrangements done by Crane. One of the tracks of the album called "Fire" was released as a single and achieved an unexpected chart success both in UK and USA, bringing Brown and his mates a brief stardom status, but the band fell apart shortly after the album was recorded, sadly never realizing its full potential, which was truly amazing. Dominated by Brown's frantic, but beautifully dramatic and virtuosic vocal delivery and Crane's superb organ playing, based on Jazz influenced improvisations, the band sounded unlike no other band at the time. The music, written mostly by Crane with the exception of a couple Rock classics, is absolutely astounding and fits Brown's lyrics perfectly. Brown's delivery is theatrical and manic at times, but always sensitive and of outstanding quality. The album is a relic of the era and an absolutely essential listening experience. This deluxe edition adds a plethora of bonus tracks, many previously never released on record. An absolute masterpiece!
