The kasenetz-katz singing orchestral circus CANADA LP

Offering up a minty transfer from original Canada pressing (1969)
I always thought this was a faux live concept..but from what I gather, it did actually take place, but this LP was
recorded after the Carnegie Hall Concert.
Some happy bubblegum pop here, and a searing fuzz laden version of Hey Joe!

Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus
by Bill Pitzonka

1968 was a banner year for bubblegum's founding fathers Jerry Kasenetz and Jeff Katz. Their association with Buddah Records had produced two consistent hitmakers, the Ohio Express and 1910 Fruitgum Co., and they had a host of lesser lights waiting in the wings. As a spectacular publicity stunt, they threw all their bands together, rented Carnegie Hall for June 7, and billed the event as The Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus.

The original cast recording claims a total of 46 musicians: Buddah's 1910 Fruitgum Co. and Ohio Express; the Laurie label's Music Explosion; Kama Sutra artists Lt. Garcia's Magic Music Box, the Teri Nelson Group and J.C.W. Rat Finks; and the unsigned entities St. Louis Invisible Marching Band and 1989 Musical Marching Zoo. The "live" album was a particularly fuzzy-sounding affair consisting mostly of strange cover versions Super K staples "Simon Says," "Little Bit Of Soul" and "(Poor Old) Mr. Jensen," as well as such stylistic stretches as "Hey Joe," "Yesterday, " "We Can Work It Out" and "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'". Joey Levine contributed the sole studio cut, Down in Tennessee, which bubbled under the Billboard Hot 100 in single form.

~freQazoidiac came from beyond the 33rd dimension!

The cosmic tide had opened for the time to enable
the song structures of the collected past to be
placed into this chosen virtual dimension for a current
but unknown period of existance.
