    From ProgressiveRock :

    Another stanchion of the London underground scene, Arthur Brown had huge success with the single "Fire"; perhaps too much so, as it would shadow the rest of his career. But don’t sell the man short; much greater than the single, Brown's contribution was theatre: his on-stage antics - from fire helmet to crucifixion - set the standard for everyone to follow. Plus, Brown’s musical partner, Vincent Crane, was nothing short of genius. No less than The Who’s Kit Lambert and Pete Townsend produced their debut album, The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown. With covers of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and James Brown, the R&B influence is obvious. But the album's highlight is the five-song "opera" that comprises the first side of the album. Alternating from swinging pop to psychedelia, Crane's swirling virtuoso organ - and songwriting - is perfect counterpoint to Brown's distinct voice. Crane was no flash either: having a formal education from Trinity college, his arrangements are first rate. There’s sophistication on "Child of My Kingdom" that transcends his age at the time and certainly rivaled any keyboard player at the time. The album was extremely successful, reaching No. 2 in the UK and No. 7 in the US, while the single topped the charts. A young Carl Palmer replaced original drummer Drachen Theaker shortly after the album's release. After an additional US tour, the band broke up, with Palmer and Crane moving on to form Atomic Rooster. Brown would record another (unreleased) album with Rustic Hinge, before catching the (very suitable) Progressive bandwagon with Kingdom Come.



    The Crazy World of Arthur Brown is a psychedelic rock album by Arthur Brown and his band Crazy World of Arthur Brown, released in 1968. Considered a classic of the late-1960s psychedelic scene and a significant influence on Progressive Rock, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown includes covers of songs written by Screamin' Jay Hawkins and James Brown. Brown was also referred to as "The God of Hellfire" in reference to the opening shouted line of the 1968 hit single - "Fire".

    The Crazy World of Arthur Brown peaked at #7 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart. The hit single "Fire" reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 (October 1968) and #1 in the UK in August 1968, and #19 in Australia in October 1968.
