Continuing with the Circuses, if there is one name that comes to mind regarding the Big Top it is PT Barnum!
He called himself a Showman and was quite the character- doing Circus-like things for decades before actually getting involved in the Circus after he was in his 60's, and being famous for something he did NOT say!
After that a different Circus Story from Wild Billy, some Breakfast and a trip to the Fun House.
I will end this Episode with a Deep Cut.
It's no secret I am a big fan of Dave Edmunds, and he was the leader of a late 60's band that did a LONG frenetic rocking version of an Aram Khachaturian Classical Piece.
While the name Khachaturian may not be familiar to you, the song certainly will be from any visit to the Circus.
The famous British DJ John Peel was so impressed by this interpretation he played it twice on the SAME Program!
So if you have never heard this Love Sculpture version, you are in for a treat- it certainly should be heard at least once in your life.
Do join me for some good, interesting Music, and I will have more on this Theme next week!
