The Circle Game [Expanded & Remastered]
1960s folk boom veteran Tom Rush helped set the stage for the singer-songwriters of the following decade with THE CIRCLE GAME. The credits on the 1968 Elektra collection read like a “who's who” of performers still a couple of years away from stardom - there's a song by Jackson Browne, and two by James Taylor and Joni Mitchell (including the title number). Rush penned a pair himself, of which “No Regrets” would become an oft-covered standard, and he shaped the material into a concept album about the beginning and end of a romance. With such superb musicians as guitarist Bruce Langhorne and drummer Bernard Purdie lending support, this beautiful collection has long been considered a classic, and Rhino's Expanded and Remastered edition adds three bonus tracks to the original. Tom Rush celebrates a birthday today, and we'll wish him a happy one with his folk-rock masterpiece THE CIRCLE GAME.
