3.0 out of 5 stars Solo album of ex-Atomic Rooster guitarist 17 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
John Du Cann had an impressive career, and it's a pity that the talent of this guitarist and composer remains very much underrated.
The reason I do refer here to "Rooster" is simply because this name is quite popular, but even before Du Cann was already a name - either while with "Attack" (About Time: The Definitive Mod-Pop Collection 1967-1968, Final Daze), or with "Andromeda" (The Definitive Collection).
To most of us Du Cann is better known for his brief involvement with "Atomic Rooster", from which he was quickly sacked together with the drummer Paul Hammond - to re-emerge as an exceptional hard'n'heavy trio "Bullet" - The Entrance To Hell, strongly recommended as forgotten outstanding masterpiece of British hard rock of the 70s, standing as an equal among the top names. Because of the dispute over the name, the same trio fronted by Du Cann performed as "Hard Stuff" - Bulletproof; in both incarnations they were signed by "Purple Records".
In 1977 John Du Cann recorded his first solo album, produced by Francis Rossi of "Status Quo" (who also played on it; and one can easily feel the influence of "Bullet" on "Quo" albums) and featuring John McCoy ("Gillan") on drums.
The album was shelved until 2002, to re-emerge on this excellent collection by "Angel Air" - fortified by singles, demos, and outtakes.

Should have been released when it was made in the late 70's. Du Cann was one of many victims of 'record company politics'.

5.0 out of 5 stars glad I bought this. 4 Sep 2012
By R. Dunn
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
John Cann was a brilliant guitar player with a very distinctive sound and style. Very much of the hard rock school of guitar. I already loved his stuff in Atomic Rooster and Hard Stuff so this was very much appreciated. Not every track is excellent but enough of them are to make it worthwhile listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hit It. 23 May 2006
By Jesse Pellegrini - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is a departure from atomic rooster for John Du Cann and perplexes me as to why this album was not released in 1977 and further perplexes me as to if this album was not released, why it did not become at the very least, a top 10 hit in the UK and the US. The album is ingenious. Tracks like Fashion Fantasy and Throw him in Jail are fall along the lines of punk and rock. This is not a progressive rock album in my opinion and sounds more like a pop album, but with taste. A couple of years after Du Cann released this album, he returned to Atomic Rooster and released the album 'Atomic Rooster'. The second to be named so since There first release in circa 1969. The track 'only one night' is humorous as it seems to almost mock the 1950's 'blue moonish' feel, but is nonetheless a great track. After Du Cann joined Atomic Rooster, he left after recording one album with his counterparts Vincent Crane and Paul Hammond. Sadly, Crane and Hammond both committed suicide during the 1980's. Du Cann is the only remnant of Atomic Rooster now left, but his vocals and musical talent exceed any of today's standards. Bravo John. I always will model my musical playing and style after yours.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Where's The Show" It is here but rather different 25 Jun 2007
By Craig Fenton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As the author of the Jefferson Airplane book "Take Me To A Circus Tent" and a former radio disc-jockey, I am often asked to write and or discuss various recordings from the 60's and 70's.

It took twenty-two years for John Du Cann's "The World's Not Big Enough" to see the light of the day in 1999. Hidden in the musical vaults of the past the Angel Air release not only provides the original LP tracks but a myriad of bonus material.

For those that have been mesmerized by his work with Atomic Rooster (I have collected every note from the band) be prepared for a much different approach. The tracks are reminiscent of a combination of the Cars and David Bowie (not as ambitious).

Not one composition is even four minutes! It may be hard the first time around to comprehend the change from Rooster's intensity, gloom, and improvisation to a basic rock and roll production.

The only cut on the CD that may conjure images of John's early 1970's style would be "Exodus."

With twenty-seven tunes to digest and the opportunity to finally hear the lost record, set your mind clear of preconceived notions and judge this on its merits and not against the mighty Rooster.

Enjoy the music and be well,

5.0 out of 5 stars unbelivable great stuff 14 May 2012
By Edward J. mccarthy Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
wow i dont know where to start other then to say that ill never understand why in 1977 when this material was originally recorded it was not picked up by any major or none major label???? especially with francis rossi from status quo producing most of this and andy bown from quo appearing on the recordings and also handeling some of the production, anyway why john held onto this until 1999 ill never know but as a big atomic rooster fan i just came across this disc in 2012 and wow its awsome, im also a huge fan of du canns post atomic rooster band hard stuff, they really smoked and that short lived outfit bullet was amazing, another band that released there debut recording in 2010 40 years after they made that unbelivabley killer album that angelair put out, anyway on to this, this record as with all its bonus tracks are awsome, they sound like a mix between punk, hard rock and i think francis and andy must have brought the little bit of boogie sound i hear in here from status quo, so im saying it sounds like a bit of punk, hard rock and status quo to be exact, very good songwriting and very good hooks and very up tempo beat, not over produced screaming AMERICAN RADIO I WANT AIRPLAY!!!!! no this was just john du cann being john du cann doing exactly what he wanted, sadley he past away last year but he was very respected by myself for 45 years of never caving into what major labels wanted and all that crap, from the liner notes i can see this was remastered in 1999 and not released until a few years back, if this had been released back in 1977 it may have done well, it sure had the rawness that 77 punk had and its impact (especially in the uk) that labels would have wanted at that time so maybe it was john who held this back or better yet the inlay has so much info my fourty something year old eyes cant read small print like that without glasses so maybe it explains why this took over 30 years to see the light of day so if you have decent eyes im sure it explains it in there, also big john mcoy helped out on some of the bass tracks on these recordings(right before joining gillan) as well, if you are a fan of 70s or 80s hard rock or fuzzed out larry wallis/pink fairies sounding noise then this CD IS A MUST OWN FOR YOU, i cant belive its been out a few years and i only got around to buying it now, this is a hard rockin mans dream album (almost) if you want the best recordings john du cann ever recorded then get the bullet cd on angelair, it was recorded in 1970 but not released until 2010, thank god john put that out before he passed away, bullet is right up there with purple, sabbath uriah heep and all the other big heavy hitters of that era, play loud and enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
