Pourquoi la vente est-elle interdite ?
Why is it forbidden to sell ?

This album is incredible.
Something that everyone needs to experience. I purposely bought a really old and worn-out copy of this, as the crackle, jumps, etc all add to the absurdity of the music. I would absolutely recommend getting a shitter old copy of this.

Absolutely love this man! First stumbled across him on a 60s BBC showcase and was hooked. So many great interviews and performances online. A rare gem and definitely one of the favorites in my collection!

Is there a vinyl version of this that has the uncut 7min version of Child of my Kingdom? Seems all of them have an edited version, even the originals

US Monarch Press Review: https://www.discogs.com/The-Crazy-World-Of-Arthur-Brown-The-Crazy-World-Of-Arthur-Brown/release/6958870
Comparing this briefly to a UK stereo press reveals only a few key differences.
Mainly, the EQ is somewhat lower for the UK, giving a smoother, yet also slightly muffled sound.
It does also help making the bass a little boomier and tone down some harsh parts, but for me the US seemed more realistic with the vocals and drums especially.
The US cut also seems a bit more present while the UK more deep but I dont find either to be inherently superior in those regards.
One interesting part to note is that the UK uses up a lot more space for the grooves, probably with the added bass requiring more groove separation. This does make the UK more prone to IGD for worse systems and might reflect on a lot of used copies.
Personally I prefer the US for being more natural sounding. Even with less bass, its more tight here and still decent at high volume.
Its also cheaper and easier to find in decent condition unlike the UK.
This album is clearly not that great sounding a lot of the time though, maybe because of the recording itself.
I would have loved to see a remix or even just an audiophile remaster from the likes of Classic Records, they did the other Track hits like Hendrix and The Who so why not this?

Equipment Used:
