Without a doubt the best album of the year! I have it on CD and Vinyl and I have to say that the vinyl does indeed give a richer fatter sound. These tunes are beautifully crafted and the harmonies are exquisite. A return to true craftsmanship in music. Great production! Feelgood music.
This is the first of the "Circus World" novels. I took 35 years to find these books after reading an excerpt in a Science Fiction short story pulp magazine in the 70s. I didn't know the name of the writer but remembered (vaguely)that it involved Circus type people and that the currency was copper beads. From this meager info I found Barry Longyear and the book name "Circus World", thus got (unknowingly) the third book first. I have therefore read the story chronologically backwards. Strangely this has not affected my enjoyment in any way. A great series and a great book (ripe for re-publication!)
