CD Description

NEW EXPANDED REMASTERED CD RELEASE FOR THIS CLASSIC ALBUM by ARTHUR BROWN with BONUS TRACKS OF RARE AND UNRELEASED MATERIAL

BOOKLET WITH RESTORED ARTWORK, PHOTOS & LINER NOTES

ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are proud to announce the release of a newly remastered and expanded of "GALACTIC ZOO DOSSIER", the first album by ARTHUR BROWN's Psych / Space Rock outfit KINGDOM COME. Issued on Polydor in 1971, the album launched
the band, gaining instant notoriety.

Touching on the musical territory of fellow travellers HAWKWIND, "Galactic Zoo Dossier" was a masterwork and is now rightly regarded as a classic. This newly remastered edition includes bonus tracks of three alternate versions of `Metal Monster', `Space Plucks' and `Sunrise', together with both tracks from a BBC Radio One John Peel session from March 1971 (previously unreleased on CD).

"Galactic Zoo Dossier" joins a Deluxe 2CD edition of "The Crazy World of Arthur Brown" as the launching of Esoteric's ARTHUR BROWN re-mastered series.

4.0 out of 5 stars `1971 Underground' essential document 8 April 2010
KINGDOM COME `Galactic Zoo Dossier' (1971) ****

This was Arthur Brown's next recorded work after the `Crazy World' went a little too crazy and left him to form Atomic Rooster, and quite a melting pot it is. Like the old cliché `a movie for the ears', this album really does play out like a series of `scenes' rather than a collection of songs. Brown's attempt to describe the state of western society at the time, it's quite a bold construction. There's a jump-cut feel recalling the editing techniques of Frank Zappa, a figure who loomed large over the musicians of this era, and alongside the relatively conventional band line-up there is a lot of clever editing and some quite disconcerting use of vari-speed alongside splashes of then state of the art VCS3 synthesizer.

It is best regarded as two side long suites, and works well as such. It is a thoroughly entertaining album packed with lyrical and musical ideas. The staple of early 70's underground music, the Hammond organ, dominates while Andy Dalby acquits himself well on guitar and the drums are crisply recorded. After that, anything goes from the mock-religious opening to `Internal Messenger' to the full blown freak out closer `No Time'. There are time and tempo changes galore, and a momentum which carries through the whole album. It can be loosely described as `space rock', but Hawkwind this isn't, it's far too composed and theatrical for that. Imagine this on medium wave with a little static, and you could be listening to a typical John Peel show from the era it has such an archetypal yet individual sound. The actual sound quality here is superior to the previous re-issue, as is the informative and well illustrated booklet.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic 12 Feb 2011
this is the classic arthur brown album.it ticks all the right prog boxes and a hint of jazz as well.the zany bits are not overdone as they are slightly on his next lp kingdom come.and unlike the previous review from leeds,for me there is one standout track.sunrise.arthur brown lets you sample his full range of vocals on this track.with classic 70s guitar solo to boot.a must have album for any serious 70s prog/jazz fan.
