In 2002 I stood on a hill in Faversham, looking down on Arthur Brown doing a fantastic set closing with a very long version of 'Fire' I was really enjoying it, so much so I was joined by a similarly grinning Captain Sensible, who later played with The Damned as the sun set.

The Captain's wistful view was that Arthur is 'Great...just...great'.

"Galactic Zoo" is some crazy-ass shit, as we say down south.

"Full of Music" as they say 'round here.

Brown stated in an interview with an English music magazine that the three albums were intended to present a thematic progression. The first, this one, focused on the state of humankind in the present, the second on the human animal itself and the dichotomy between the body and mind, and the third focused on cosmic and spiritual matters

Apart from one single, I know next to nothing of his work. Is this the pinnacle of his albums?

As an ex resident of Reading, I am fairly certain Brown studied philosophy at the university here. The woods (the Wilderness) in the uni grounds were a haven of grooviness, particularly on Friday evenings...

I think it's the best Kingdom Come album of the three.

The Crazy World of Arthur Brown is excellent

He has several peaks.

I would say The Crazy World of Arthur Brown (by the Crazy World of Arthur Brown)
Journey (by Kingdom Come)
Vampire Suite (by the Crazy World of Arthur Brown)

are three

Wow, "Sunrise" is totally in Animals territory. Never noticed before that Brown and Eric Burdon have very similar voices. Both remarkable singers.

It's hard to believe but we keep returning to the same themes and issues.

Sad really
