The Devil Hits Back is a compilation album by British rock band Atomic Rooster.
Shortly after the death in 1989 of Atomic Rooster founder member Vincent Crane, it was compiled as a tribute by his widow, Jean, and former bandmate John Du Cann.
As well as containing a dozen latter-era Atomic Rooster tracks, all its reissues are rounded out by Atomic Rooster's three Beat-Club appearances, dating from 1971 and 1972. The Beat-Club tracks were later included, with video, on the Masters from the VaultsDVD.
It was originally released by Demi Monde Records in 1989 as a 10 track LP and a 12 track CD. Subsequently, it was reissued on the Pilot/Burning Airlines label in 1999, with the same cover as before, but adding the three live tracks. Most recently, it was reissued in 2008 by Plastic Head Records with a new cover, but the same 15 track listing.
