Circo de Teatro is a very brave and very successful foray into the world of freaks and sideshows, performed with passion and warmth that only an 18th album could be . . .what say Tom Waits does a cover of 'Amphetamine Sam' for his next album, it would work a treat. Dealing aces from many decks . . ."Head Bone Gumbo" is one fine album, Jude Davison is a talented musician and singer, and Blake Parker was no slouch as a lyricist. That's a pretty good combination.
Reminisent of Lyle Lovett in his prime there is not a weak track here, the album is really enjoyable and it holds your attention from beginning to end. This is a fabulous double-disc package that major-labels could only dream of. A triumph again - here comes another 4 stars....Davison’s ‘Blood on the Tracks’ . . .
