Circle is usually hard to pin down. Every album these fine Fins produce finds the lads exploring some new, exciting sounds that pre-existed only in their heads at one time. What gets me is that when I first heard this record I thought it was some long lost proto-metal soundtrack-esque gem.

In memoriam of Mr. Pete Cosey. Pete was session guitarist for Chess Records, blazing up R&B albums, before being drafted into Miles Davis' electric band in the early 70's.
This one here is a pretty gnarly blues record with some serious fuzzy guitar work. Very Hendrix like guitar voicings, meaning non-guitar guitar noises, and at same time very individualistic because even though this is 1969, he's been doing this before Jimi Hendrix started his solo career.
