Stone Circus - Stone Circus CD. Reissue of superb blend of psych-pop and experimental acid rock originally appeared on the legendary Mainstream label in 1969. Recorded by a bunch of Canadian musicians who had just moved to New York City, it received no airplay or promotional support and was soon deleted, but has gone on to become one of the most sought-after major label LPs of the period. Enjoyable from start to finish, it's a treat for all fans of melodic psychedelia.


Country of Origin:


Thought to have been Californian, this band was responsible for one of the rarer and stranger Mainstream releases, which incorporates many diverse influences. Sometimes it doesn't always gel but certainly makes interesting listening. All the cuts are originals, written either by Jonathan Caine 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 Mister Grey 45, which is also on the album, is interesting too. Recommended for fans of psych and/or progressive rock but not for garage purists.

Jonathan Cain was later a member of Journey.
