All the cuts are originals, written either by Jonathan Caine 2 or a guy called Murphy, who presumably had some connection with the band, since some tracks are co-written by Caine and Murphy. The material is wide-ranging from the accessible psychpop of "Sara Wells", laid back, melodic opening cut "What Went Wrong" and uptempo "Inside-Out Man" to the highly experimental "People I Once Knew", which starts with spoken lyrics over melodic piano and later descends into lots of fuzz and organ work.
The Mr. Viewing All Stone Circus. An obscure bit of psychedelic pop issued briefly on the Mainstream label at the end of the 60s -- one that's got a tighter groove and hipper sound than most of its contemporaries! The Stone Circus may have only left this one album behind in their career -- but it's a plenty great one, and shows the group to be extremely focused and polished, with a sound that's often highly rhythmic, and even a bit funky at times!
Before the release of the album, the combo were actually known as The Funky Farm -- which might have something to do with the sound -- and the music here is a tight blend of basslines, snapping drums, organ, and guitar -- with bits of vibes thrown into the mix at a few especially great points in the set done with a bit of fuzz at times -- clever lyrics.
Thx Marios. This is a great album Marios. Michael Sunday 8th March 6. At first I bought this record the re-issue as a curiosity. I had heard some of it on you tube and took a chance buying it. But of all the psychedelic novelties I have, this record breaks through to something much greater than novelty.
The lyrics truly speak to me. The music transcends the 60's, actually sounds more like 70's music especially that riff from Inside Out Man. There's a slight cool, artsy, white jazziness to it that reminds one of a precursor to groups like Steely Dan. Save Me Third Stone Circus. Beauty and Grace Third Stone Circus. White Pearls Third Stone Circus.
