Midnight Circus "s/t" LP
First official reissue of this fantastic German Folk and Psychedelic album, 1972 released on Bellaphon/ Bacillus. Midnight Circus only album was recorded at the famous Dierks Studio, produced with Peter Hauke. In fact Midnight Circus hailed from Cologne area and it would seem as though the idea behind Midnight Circus, being a duo with the aid of session musicians, was to emulate the cosmic folk of Witthüser und Westrupp, but with an internationally appealing English vocal bias. A success indeed, but also a touch rockier and strongly influenced by Dieter Dierks involvement in the sessions. The atmospheric tracks featuring mellotron and flute also recall The Moody Blues and early King Crimson. Christian Bollmann, one of the band leaders has since then become an accomplished ethno-musicologist, moving into the more ethereal realms of the new age. The recordings were remastered from the master tape and included two bonus tracks of 1971 released 7" "Coloured Is Gay/ Get It" and a latter song "Seagull" from the bands archive.
