- The album is one of the rarest items in its original version, and it’s here reprinted in a perfect 180gr. black vinyl replica.
A band from the Turin area, Circus 2000 debuted in 1970 on RiFi label with an eponymous LP that, although it did not represent a new level of sound, it fell like a bolt from the blue on an Italian scene still anchored to the beat schemes of the ’60s.
“Circus 2000” was not a real progressive album, since it derived from the psychedelic and west-coast scenes from the USA, but it’s still considered one of the LP’s that opened to the florid Italian ‘pop season’, which would explode just a couple of years later. The album cover artwork, the English lyrics, the psychedelic sound supporting the beautiful voice of singer Silvana Aliotta, all these ingredients made Circus 2000 an unique phenomenon in the musical Italian panorama, and many believed that the band was actually American.
