Stoned Circus - Revisited (1970 us, terrific acid psych rock, 2004 World in Sound release)

A long gone, forgotten by most psychedelic band from the Midwest. This is a remaster from the original tapes. Band was from Kansas City and this ten track album was recorded at Cavern Studios in 1970.

This is an outstanding piece of US psychedelia . The powerful sound with male and female lead vocals has a strong “Jefferson Airplane” feeling, feat. a magic B3 organ and stunning heavy guitars. Not to be confused with the “Stone Circus” that recorded for the Mainstream label. This material was unreleased and found in the archives of Cavern Sound Studios where the “Wizzards from Kansas” recorded.

Released  as limited LP version in 1994 which is long sold out. Songs include “Gotta find Way”, “Try Love”, “New World”, “Trust”, and a fabulous coverversion of  “Gonna Leave You”… Originally recorded in 1970 and for the first time on CD taken from the original masters including an 8p. with cool artwork, bio and photos. Highly recommended, reflects honest summer, peace & love feeling!

2. Feel - 2:34
3. Try Love - 4:16
4. New World - 3:08

MY SON JUST told me we were on Rockasteria! How exciting to see us in the flow still.I was the lead singer and played congas for the band and we had a blast together. We were rediscovered in Germany and were given the chance to remaster in Sony Europa and then WORLD IN SOUND cut 1.000 CD's and 1,000 Vinyls and to our surprise they all sole like in 6 months in Europe and Asia!! We were then invited to come to Heidleburg for a concert..with Stoned Circus being the Headliner!! Wow what a blast that was after all those years!! We were all in our 50's and we hit it hard and rocked it where we received 3 standing ovations!!
