An outstanding keyboard player and composer, Vincent Crane was the founder of Atomic Rooster, one of the finest progressive rock groups of the super-charged Seventies. When he teamed up with soul singer Chris Farlowe, the mighty Rooster became even more exciting. We can enjoy the fruits their dynamic collaboration one more time, thanks to this unmissable collection of historic recordings from the archives. Our package includes an audio CD Live In London 1972 from a BBC radio show that has Chris singing Rooster classics like ‘Devil’s Answer’, backed by Vincent’s powerhouse organ.   DVD and CD versions of The Lost Broadcasts reveal early 1970s colour video footage and audio from German TV’s Beat Club. Chris Farlowe sings different takes of ‘Black Snake’ and ‘Breakthrough’ and the frantic guitar of the late John Du Cann is included on tracks like ‘Sleeping For Years’ and ‘I Can’t Take Anymore’.   Extensive CD liner notes by Repertoire’s Chris Welch tell the story of the band with contributions from Chris Farlowe recalling his days in Atomic Rooster.
