Performer Notes
  • If one is looking for the signature Jerry Jeff Walker country-rock sound of the 1970s, one will not find it with CIRCUS MAXIMUS WITH JERRY JEFF WALKER. Instead, he of the triple-moniker and his Roman cohorts ably mine territory already well-trod by the Byrds, the Lovin' Spoonful, and Country Joe and the Fish. Songs ping-pong between Roger McGuinn-styled trebly jangle and fuzzed-out psychedelic guitar riffs. There are also other '60s trappings in evidence, like greasy Farfisa chords and even the requisite hair-related protest tune, "Short Haired Fathers."
  • Most of the songs here are attributed to organist and vocalist Bob Bruno, although in some of Walker's stand-out tracks like "Fading Lady" and "Oops I Can Dance," the listener can hear his characteristic baritone developing. "Fading Lady" also hints at the dark lyricism of his more famous '70s material--particularly RIDIN' HIGH's spiked classic, "Jaded Lover." The album closes with easily its best track: Bruno's darkly psychedelic "Wind." With a vocal reminiscent of David Crosby, the epic closer was the band's only radio success.
