Atomic Rooster - The Devil Hits Back
This is my description text 1. It can support html.

One of the most important and innovative rock performers of the 1960s was Arthur Brown. However, unfortunately, Brown’s wild showmanship - most famously including a section of the show when he performed with a flaming crown on his head - has often overshadowed the fact that his band were also remarkably talented. When ‘The Crazy World of Arthur Brown’ went their separate ways in 1969, thwarting hopes of a second album, Arthur went on to form his critically successful band Kingdom Come, whereas organist Vincent Crane and drummer Carl Palmer (later of ELP) formed an exciting new band: Atomic Rooster. They had originally planned to team up with Brian Jones, who had only just been kicked out of the Rolling Stones. But, as everyone knows, Jones’ career ended at the bottom of a swimming pool and they recruited Nick Graham as a singer.

The Devil Hits Back is a compilation album by Atomic Rooster. Shortly after the death in 1989 of Atomic Rooster founder member Vincent Crane, it was compiled as a tribute by his widow, Jean, and former bandmate John Du Cann. As well as containing a dozen latter-era Atomic Rooster tracks, all its reissues are rounded out by Atomic Rooster's three Beat-Club appearances, dating from 1971 and 1972. The Beat-Club tracks were later included, with video, on the Masters from the Vaults DVD.
