Germany 2013 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Finkenbach Festival, Finkenbach, Germany; August 17, 2013. Very good stereo audience recording.

It’s been 45 years of “Fire” as Arthur Brown takes his show on the road.

“Fire is perhaps one of the weirder, more ‘out-there’ songs to ever grace the top of the charts. Arthur Brown, the singer and one of the songwriters behind the sixties hit, made an indelible mark on the face of popular culture with this driving mix of r’n’b and psychedelia. Throw in a video full of voodoo dancing with these dark lyrics and it’s no surprise that the song and its influence has continued to reverberate since its release back in 1967. Fast forward to 2013 and Arthur is celebrating the 45th anniversary of The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, his band’s debut release, with a series of live shows and the recording of new material.” -

Thanks to Maddrax who recorded and shared the show at Dime. Thanks also to gazatthebop for the cover picture.

  7. Great! Brings to mind George Harrison running around the studio, holding a flaming ashtray on his head, saying “I’m Arthur Brown! I’m Arthur Brown!”
