By A Customer on 5 July 2001
Format: Audio CD
There are so many albums out there that claim to be a compilation of "rare tracks", so my expectations for this one weren't high. When I played it the first time I simply couldn't believe what I was hearing - where has this stuff been hiding all these years?! With the exception of two or three songs, all the numbers contained on this CD are genuinely rare and previously unheard. For the two demo versions recorded in 1970 with Carl Palmer on drums alone I would have happily purchased this album, but somehow there are all these other tracks that have been rediscovered and compiled into what can only be described as a "must have" CD. There are several demo versions of familiar songs, as well as some US radio ads for In Hearing Of! ON top of this, the CD booklet is packed full of photos and information. I cannot stress enough how essential this release is to all true Atomic Rooster fans out there. Buy it!

most of these "ditties" are from the penultimate line up from the late 70's early 80's I was actually hoping the recordings were from the bands early years so I was miss lead in a fashion by the photo on the cover

4.0 out of 5 stars Rare Rooster Indeed! 24 Oct. 2000
By Andrew Callaghan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is a collection of unreleased and alternate takes from Atomic Rooster guitarist/vocalist John Du Cann's personal archives. They emanate mostly from 1980-81, at a time when the Rooster had just re-formed and issued their self-titled album from 1980. Also included on the CD are hilarious US radio adverts from 1971, circa the IN HEARING OF... period. And for ELP/Asia fans, two tracks feature Carl Palmer on drums. If you're like me and do not have a copy of ATOMIC ROOSTER (1980), you will find this album enormously satisfying as a replacement/alternative. Some tracks are alternate takes of songs that only appeared as singles after the 1980 album was finished ('Play it Again'; 'End of the Day'). There is also a note warning the consumer that the 'sound may vary due to different studios/years'. I think the album sounds fine overall, just a bit harsh in places, and the Carl Palmer-vintage tracks are in mono.

4.0 out of 5 stars Atomic Rooster - 'Rarities' (Angel Air) 16 Dec. 2003
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Very well assembled collection of unreleased tunes that's been pulled from Rooster guitarist / vocalist's John DuCann's private stash. Can't complain. It's a pretty decent nineteen track disc that surely holds my complete interest,to say the least. Best songs are the rocking "Death Walks Behind You", the alternative mix of "Throw Your Life Away", "Devil's Answer", the demo of "Don't Lose Your Mind","Forward Revealed", the in-your-teeth "End Of The Day", and one of my personal Rooster favorites "I Can't Take No More". Also liked the radio friendly "No Changes By Me". There are a couple of U.S. radio ads mixed in. Very cool! Why don't more artists tag radio ads on their later day compilation CD's? Vince Crane's killer keyboard work is nearly worth the admission price alone. 'Rarities' is a good effort of top grade UK heavy progressive rock.
