Cirkus quintet formed, in late 1973, from the ashes of bands Lucas Tyson and
Moonhead. Soon, Hollies' manager Robin Britten took the band under his wings and
during 1974, Cirkus recorded their debut, entitled "One", and just 1000 copies were
pressed up. It is widely regarded as the most musically accomplished private pressing
of its kind to emerge out of the UK's then burgeoning progressive music scene of the
early 70's.
"One" was produced by veteran from the (early) Beatles and Hollies, Ron Richards.
All the tracks were laid down virtually live and then the overdubs and vocals were
added in later sessions. Enhanced string and choir parts, written by Tony Hymas, were
also added later and followed the mellotron lines.
