Joe Byrd & The Field Hippies - The American Metaphysical Circus: Remastered Edition (CD)

$ 18.99


Release Date: 08/06/21

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly re-mastered official CD edition of the classic 1969 Psychedelic / Experimental album 'The American Metaphysical Circus' by JOE BYRD & THE FIELD HIPPIES.

Joseph Byrd was a key member of the highly influential American Psychedelic group UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The band's self-titled album from 1968 was a ground-breaking work in American popular music, although Byrd departed the band to pursue new musical interests.

Securing the backing of Columbia Records, he assembled a new group of musicians (including noted saxophonist Tom Scott) and a series of recording sessions produced 'The American Metaphysical Circus'.

Even more experimental than his work with United States of America, Joseph Byrd produced a masterpiece that was to feature clever use of tape loops and some of the earliest use of synthesizers in rock music. A stunning album that would influence future generations of musicians, 'The American Metaphysical Circus' is now regarded as a landmark release of American music in the late 1960s.

This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered and restores the original album artwork. It also features a booklet with a new essay.
