‘I am the god of hellfire, and I bring you fire!’ Arthur Brown, and his Crazy World, own arguably one of the most famous lines of 1960s rock ‘n’ roll in that phrase – used for the introduction to the appropriately-titled Fire. However, many people have failed to really delve further into the band’s legacy, meaning this rare 1968 recording for the BBC offers an all-too-uncommon opportunity to do some digging.

A word of warning, there be monsters here, and that’s certainly no bad thing. A mutant hybrid of psychedelic guitar work, R&B, blues, and proto-Northern Soul with added surrealism, it’s a wild ride, perhaps even a vivid trip, into the often overlooked back catalogue of a true icon of the era, and a musical visionary who deserves much more recognition now than he is often afforded.

Featuring the killer line-up of Arthur Brown (lead vocals), Vincent Crane (keyboards), Carl Palmer (drums), Ron Wood (bass on Side One) and Sean Nicholas Greenwood (bass on Side Two).
