Repertoire Records will soon issue Live at the BBC plus, a new three disc box set featuring live BBC recordings of English prog rock band Atomic Rooster. The 2CD+DVD set pairs a CD of Live in London 1972 (from a BBC Radio 1 In Concert show) with The Lost Broadcasts – audio and video from German TV’s Beat Club (on CD and region-free DVD).
A beautiful box-set for this British progressive-rock group containing their first three albums originally released between 1970 and 1971 (Atomic Rooster, Death Walks Behind You and In Hearing Of). Includes bonus tracks, demos, outtakes and live tracks.
Made in England is the fourth album by British rock band Atomic Rooster. Although previously known for generally having a progressive rock style, this album saw the band moving in more of a funk/soul direction, largely influenced by new singer Chris Farlowe…
In Hearing of is the third album by British rock band Atomic Rooster. Although not included on the album, "The Devil's Answer" single was released just prior to it, becoming the band's highest chart success at number 4 in the UK. This helped push the album to a number 18 UK chart placing, despite the fact that the four musicians pictured on the inside cover never played together. The backing tracks (and some vocals) were recorded by Vincent Crane, John Cann and Paul Hammond, but Cann and Hammond left the group soon after vocalist Pete French was drafted in. The finished album's sound was dominated by Crane and Hammond, with many of Cann's guitar parts either not used or placed lower in the mix.
