Circus - s/t. 1969 England

Most famous for featuring Mel Collins on flute and sax, later of King Crimson. For what this is, it's outstanding. Jazzy progressive instrumental work, with fantastic musicianship and great tones. But, and it's a big but, most of the material are cover tunes. Some are more recognizable than others, and pretty much feature extended, improvised, and original jams on most tracks. So, as I said, about as good as it can get for the limited style.
