4.0 out of 5 stars High volts from the deep vaults 1 Mar 2003
By Patrick Neylan VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Does anyone remember Atomic Rooster? One-click shopping lacks the excitement of rooting around grubby second-hand shops in back alleys, but at least gems like this become more widely available. The fashion for the blues in the early 1970s (when the English still believed - usually rightly - that they played it better than anyone) meant that albums like this, with an almost honky-tonk feel, could at least get a release, even if they didn't sell shedloads. Here the rocking artistry of Vince Crane's keyboards get their best outing since 'The Crazy World of Arthur Brown'. There's plenty of pace and, unusually for the period, the musicians demonstrate their skill without it getting in the way of the music. If you have sympathy with 1970s rock, this album is worth having. This is very much of its time, but it has stood the test of time. It's seldom amazing, but always enjoyable.

This is a great album. The best they have produced. The first song 'black snake' sent me into a trance which the rest of the cd promptly follwed in the footsteps of. However it is not all soft and quiet, some tracks are sharp and hitting while still maintaining a superior standard of style to anything around today. An indesputeable wonder which will little be bettered

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant 11 May 2003
By vh1967 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I love this album; it keeps me enthralled with its powerful words and its strong music. It is their 3rd album and I think it probably the best introduction to Atomic Rooster.

2.0 out of 5 stars one of the worst albums ever made ? 24 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
Before i get a hammering i am not being contoversial just for the sake of it.Perhaps i should set the scene ?
Back in 1976 in Leeds we had a great independant record shop called "Scene and Heard"at the rear of Debenhams.
Well, every now and then they had a stock clearance with a huge box containing all lps for 50 pence.This week it must have been a quiet week for the only albums in the box were loads of this record.
I remember the moment well as when we were looking at the cover they were playing the section form "Roxy and elsewhere" by Zappa when he says "jazz ain,t dead yet it just smells s little !"
To this day i,ve never forgotten that line and where i hear it- at the time i did not know who it was or what album it was from - only taken me 30 years to solve that one !?!?!
Back to the subject- so as we did not have much money, only enough to get the bus fare back home to Morley.My friend and i decided that it couldn,t be all that bad and bought a copy each.I had heard little bits of Atomic Rooster on the legendary Alan Freeman show on saturday afternoon and i did like Deep Purple and the likes( hard rock) .
Once we got home we played the disc and sat there waiting for the heavy bits to kick in- where was the guitar,it seemed to be dominated by Vincent Crane's Hammond organ(again we were big Gibson guitar fans- Led Zep et al )and the Hammond was not our fave instrument( apart from John Lord's, as he put it thru a 100 watt marshall stack anyway !).Onto side 2 - still nothing.the songs were juvenile and similar to one another.
The one that stands out to me still is the truly awful"Black Snake"-with its idiotic refrain of "black snake caught in the long grass" ad infinitum !
It made me feel ill it was so.....
