There’s been a wealth of material exhumed from German television archives over the last few years, offering an arguably unparalleled swathe of long-unseen material from often quite underappreciated acts. With apparently no let-up in the archival digging, this collection trawls from 1970 through ’72, offering three sessions from Atomic Rooster.
Rooster formed following Vincent Crane and Carl Palmer’s defection from Arthur Brown’s band. It wasn’t until the latter quit to align himself with Keith Emerson and Greg Lake that the “classic” Rooster line-up coalesced, as John Du Cann and Paul Hammond joined in Palmer’s wake. That second line-up is captured in August 1970, and again in February ’71, with their free-flowing and hard-rocking (if rather extravagant) dexterity on display.
After that, the band endured a revolving-door membership. Hammond had departed by the time the final session was captured, replaced by Rick Parnell, while they’d also acquired the vocal services of Chris Farlowe. Five different takes of two separate tracks captures that incarnation here, suggesting that Rooster’s sound had become rather subservient to Farlowe’s vocals in place of the fluid floridity of the previous performances.
