Back in summer 1968, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown were on top of the world. Famously promoted by performances with Arthur Brown wearing a burning helmet, Fire! was a massive worldwide hit, topping the charts in the UK and Canada and eventually reaching the top 10 in America, France, Germany, Austria, The Netherlands and Ireland. The band's second single on Track Records, co-produced by The Who'€™s Pete Townshend, it bridged the gap between London'€™s flourishing, colourful psychedelic underground and the mainstream pop scene. The resulting eponymous album was a theatrical, ambitious concept album based around the elements (fire being just one of four, of course).

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this landmark record, Cherry Red are delighted to present this deluxe edition box set. Alongside the stereo album and numerous bonus tracks, the rare Mono mix appears on CD for the first time, as well as three additional, previously unissued BBC sessions and four other radio recordings, plus a handful of pre-Track recordings by Arthur Brown before he formed Crazy World... The discs are lavishly packaged within a 12"€ x 12" box set, together with a stereo vinyl replica of the original LP and a poster.
