I almost never recommend an album on the basis of the strength of one song, but here I'll make an exception. "Wind" carries this album and completely blows the rest of the songs away. I first heard the song on Phoenix FM station KDKB, a station that was once in the vanguard of progressive music, back in the mid-70s. I suspected that the band received airplay only because of the Jerry Jeff Walker connection yet there is very little Walker influence apparent in its music. Without Walker, this album would likely have gotten no airplay and would have faced quick consignment to the cutout bins. When I bought the album in order to own a recording of Wind, I was disappointed in the utter lack of merit in any of the other songs. But I was pleased that I now owned a copy of that sophisticated jewel of a song I wanted - Wind - and that five-star, piano-driven jazzy tune is the one song that makes the album worthwhile. If you haven't heard Wind, you owe it to yourself to ensure that you do.

As have other reviewers; I, too, made a personal quest for this album just to have in my possession that delightful jazzy number titled "Wind". However, I was fortunate enough to find it on an original Vanguard LP pressing. Later, I would also pick up this CD release. Let me state flatly that the sound of the LP is warmer, not as compressed sounding, and devoid of a few technical hiccups found on the CD. Though slightly disconcerting, these few glitches wouldn't dissuade me from recommending purchase of this disc, mainly since its now the only available method of hearing this ingratiating album.

Yes, the bulk of the songs are mostly derivative of a certain '60s pop ethos. Those tunes written by Bob Bruno (with that one fabulous exception!) will take you back to a time when jangle, fuzz guitar, and organ were all the rage. It would make for good background music at a mid-'60s retro party. The tunes of Jerry Jeff Walker are played and sung in a disarming folk/pop manner with lyrics exuding a developing heartfelt cynicism. Present-day fans of Jerry Jeff would definitely get a kick out of this!

"Wind", however, is a tune that transcends everything else to be heard here. Why it strikes a chord with so many is difficult to pin down, suffice it to say that its charms are both true and timeless...and make the album well worth the purchase.

Most of this album is pretty forgettable 60s-era psychadelia, but there's one song- Bob Bruno's 60s classic "Wind"- that makes this an absolute must-have for anyone who grew up in the 1960s. I spent years tracking down this album in the late 1970s, so of course I was thrilled when it came out on CD.
If you remember "Wind", you'll know why you need this album. If you've never heard it, get the CD and treat yourself to one of the great classics of that era.

Years ago had had an original copy of this album and many more that wound up getting lost or stolen. Like some of you have posted I also heard this song on the best progressive radio station at the time. WNEW FM 102.7 in NYC Some of you reading this may know about NEW and it was Allison Steele "The Night Bird" who would play WIND often on the station along with other classics that are now called lost. They were not lost back then. I just placed an order for the CD tonight. Why you may ask. Because I was listening to my Sirius satellite radio on the Classic Vinyl channel and in 2 seconds I realised it was WIND. Don't confuse this Circus Maximus with some upstart band from Noway using the same name. Enjoy

I bought a copy of Circus Maximus' 67' S/T debut at a local record exchange well over 15 years ago & it wasn't only for the minor-hit song "Wind" like others here had commented on. The critics here posted that essentially "Wind" is the only song worth having and the rest of the tunes are just mediocre album tracks. THIS IS NOT TRUE! Although some of the material may sound dated, but in a good way, this album gives you a "feeling" of a time and place long gone. It makes you want to reflect and do some introspection still, 44 years after the fact. Not only do you have the great vocals of Jerry Jeff Walker here shining on his compositions, but also the young multi-talented creative prowess of Bob Bruno. His musical genius at this stage is unmistakable, even though you'll hear his influences coming through like the jazz improvisation & the jangly Byrdsy 12 string guitar with some fuzz to boot. The music & lyrics go well together and the words have meaning, speaking to you wrapped in 3-part harmonies that are sung well. The musical ideas are just inspiring! Plain and simple yes, "Wind" may be a masterpiece, but this work as a whole is a gift. "Lost Sea Shanty", "People's Games", "Time Waits", "Short Haired Fathers" & the early punk in "Travelin' Around" & "Bright Light Lover". Do not forget the Jerry Jeff gem "Fading Lady" duo with the late Pete Troutner on vocals. Only narrow-mindedness will indicate "Wind" is only reason to listen here. Almost every song here is worth the price of admission to the Circus! Their 1968 2nd masterpiece "Neverland Revisited" continues to build on the acid-jazz, the wonderful harmonies, wickedly inventive piano & Farfisa organ in a more colorful splash of psychedelia! Just imagine what a 3rd Circus Maximus album would have sounded like if they stood together long enough to make it through 1969. Bob Bruno is indeed a true overlooked legend! Love ya' BOB!
