Wow. You learn something new everyday. Thanks for the info Joost. Now i'll have to go digging some more.

Crazy you have the same CD though. I thought I was the only one.  ha2ha

Well sh*t, like Joost posted, Epic has another album called 'Black Hole Vertigo' (which i'm ordering now) so my addition is bogus.

Same here. I love that album. Almost every song sounds like it could have been a hit in the mid or late 60s.

I've mentioned this band before in this forum, but it's the best example I can think about: The United States Of America. They released just one album, in 1968.

I absolutely love this very rare album (worth a fortune on vinyl) and would love to give a copy to someone in the CD swap (have a feeling Todd Baz & possibly Hombre would like it)
Midnight Circus were essentially the folk-rock-with-psych-tendencies duo of Christian Bollmann and Torsten Schmitt, who made just the one self-titled album in 1972. Between them, they shared the vocal and acoustic guitar work, with Bollmann adding recorder and trumpet (notably the solo on longest and best track November Church) and various guest musicians filling out the sound.
Midnight Circus is good with several of the songs operating in ‘meandering and slightly stoned’ mode  ha2ha
A very obscure and difficult to locate album produced in Germany in the early 70's.
The album does venture out into a tougher rock sound at times while at others it will float on a bed of mellotron sound which hazily recalls the sound of early King Crimson or The Moody Blues. A very interestibng and rare album which is well worth a listen.
Amongst the album’s guests was Veit Madaus on keys, who played instantly-recognisable Mellotron strings on I Had A Dream, with less obvious brass on November Church.

a taster (brilliant stuff);
