Circus Days

Wouldn't want for ya to think your strange uncle was running out of 1960's obscurities after a couple
of days of early 1970's and beyond hallucinagenic treats, but here we have the CD versions of "Circus Days" which was yet ANOTHER set of (mostly) British pop-psych nuggets.....gotta be SOME overlap with some of the other sets, but my goal is for you to have every last bit of this stuff that I can scrape together, and these are pretty good, CD rips I got from a buddy of mine a while back......originally these were six vinyl LP's, the CD reissue compresses it down to four fairly loaded CD's.

The first CD (comprising of LP's 1 & 2) features Kid Rock (no not THAT one, LORD....), Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, Penny Peeps, the very underappreciated Arzachel, Alex Harvey, The SMoke, and Blonde on Blonde, so not exactly a bunch of no-names, but also some lesser luminairies such as Head West, Vashti, Nick Garrie, and the Fingers......2 tracks, more than just a curiosity, listenable and enjoyable.

The Second disc is (careful attention here kids) is titled "Volume 3", trust me on this, the fist one was "Volume 1-2", don't ask me.....anyway, Volume 3 is stacked up with 28 tracks, more obscure than the first, we get Green Scarab, Medium, Druid Chase, Earth (NOT the earlk Sabbath incarnation I would guess), Actress (likewise NOT the pre-New York Dolls), hy Limbs, Mirage, and lots more,uding a couple of those "Unknown" bands that I think are so cool for whatever reason.

The third disc, I kid you not, is entitled Volume 4&5.......perhaps
these are metric conversions, ho ho.....anyway, 25 tracks here, this one pretty much on the side of the obscurities as well, Cardboard Orchestra, Peter & the Wolves, Secrets, Clover (don't miss: thier "psych version" of "Ice Cream Man")........if you enjoyed the others sets such as "Hens Teeth" and maybe "English Freakbeat", likely you'll drool over this as well.......

OK, Disc four, clever titled "Volume 6", continues to pile it on.....Pattern People, Juice, Leze Majesty, Queen Flora's Recollections, The Majamood.......basically another good, thorough, comprehensive set of exactly what it intends to be......good, but somewhat unknown, psych-pop for the UK ca. Mid-60's, and what could be wrong with that? Just what I thought!

Another good set........hope I'm helping you guys develope your collections the way you want them to be.......remember years ago? there were "gaps" in our collection and finding one, filling one in, was such an exhilerating feeling, a yard sale, a record convention, used record shop.....I had great moments discovery in ALL of those......now, we can click a couple buttons, and, by looking in the proper places, we can have a PERFECT music collection, EXACTLY what we want.....FOR FREE.....so which is better? Hey.....I'll take what we have NOW over what I grew up doing 50 times over......it's like the difference between dentistry then and now, NOW is much much much much better......and I'm glad I can be a part of it!
