The incipient incarnation of Atomic Rooster – with Vincent Crane (organ/vocals), Nick Graham (vocals/bass), and Carl Palmer (drums) – was together just long enough to document its debut, Atomic Roooster (1970) – (note: the extra O is intentional). Prior to the last-minute addition of Graham – the only bassist Atomic Rooster ever had – the band emerged from the remnants of the then recently defunct Crazy World of Arthur Brown…

Atomic Rooster experienced several lineup changes during their initial tenure in the early '70s, with Nice 'n' Greasy being the band's last before disbanding. By this time the band's musical direction had shifted from hard rock and progressive rock to a style more closely resembling blues/funk…

cd1: The First 10 Explosive Years (1999): In 1970 guitarist and vocalist John DuCann joined Atomic Rooster and he immediately went on tour with the band. When bass player Graham left the band keyboardist Crane refused to replace him and started playing bass lines on the lower part of Hammond organ. To compensate the fact that he couldn't use his left hand to press down chords on the lower manual he created a 'burning' style of playing, often in furious interplay with DuCann. When Carl Palmer left Atomic Rooster to join Keith Emerson and Greg Lake left for supergroup ELP Rick Parnell shortly replaced him. John and Vincent were not satisfied about his skills and had to replace him by Paul Hammond, an extremely good drummer from a local band called Farm.

The final Atomic Rooster album, from 1980, caught the group riding the crest of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, and loving every minute of it. Reconstituted around founders Vincent Crane and John Du Cann, plus drummer Preston Heyman, the group signed with EMI and set about cutting an album that – if it wasn't exactly a match for the peerless pair that launched Atomic Rooster's career a decade previously, was at least the best thing they'd done since then. Settling firmly into the same darkened groove that created "Devil's Answer" and "Death Walks Behind You," ten new numbers gave hearty evidence that time had not diminished the sheer malevolent power of their combined vision.

Prior to the last-minute addition of Graham – the only bassist Atomic Rooster ever had – the band emerged from the remnants of the then recently defunct Crazy World of Arthur Brown. The material was primarily courtesy of Crane and consisted of heavier sides.

Whilst being a very good compilation for fans of the band, it includes several unlicensed tracks whose copyright is owned variously by Elektra, EMI, Sanctuary (who purchased the B&C and Dawn) catalogues and Polydor Records. While it is 'endorsed' by former band member John Du Cann, he does not actually own the rights to the 'Atomic Rooster' name; this resides with the estate of late founder member Vincent Crane.

Atomic Rooster was the brainchild of former Crazy World of Arthur Brown keyboardist Vincent Crane. This 2 cd anthology summarizes the first 5 albums of the band before they broke up the first time. Vincent Crane was tormented by psychological problems throughout his existence. He had a number of breakdowns and spent time in mental hospitals. He eventually took his own life on St. Valentine's Day 1989. His music however will live on through "Heavy Soul".
