Space Circus - Fantastic Arrival. 1979 Japan

Whereas Space Circus' debut Funky Caravan traded in on the cliches of the late 70s era - fat funky bass lines, and overall danceable jazz rock - Fantastic Circus reaches further back into the fusion canon and emulated no less a luminary than Mahavishnu Orchestra. As the album cover demonstrates, this is one fiery affair certain to light you up. By far the better of their two albums.

Personal collection
LP: 1979 RCA
CD: 2008 BMG

The original LP comes in a single sleeve cover with a really cool astronauts on fire cover. Like almost all Japanese reissues, there are no liners in English available.The first CD reissue was always a bear to find. After many years of being absent from the shelves, the mini-LP from BMG filled the gap.
