180g Vinyl Double LP!
Circles Around the Sun, the Neal Casal curated quartet, was commissioned to compose and record over five hours of original music for the intermissions at the Grateful Dead Fare Thee Well shows. Neal recruited fellow Chris Robinson Brotherhood member Adam MacDougall, Dan Horne from Beachwood Sparks, and Mark Levy of Congress.
Those lucky enough to score a "miracle" ticket to the Grateful Dead Fare Thee Well concerts during the summer of 2015 were treated to some potent psychedelic jams during the shows' intermissions. The mysterious group behind those freewheeling tunes was Circles Around the Sun, a band convened by guitarist Neal Casal specifically for the project. The songs were composed and recorded during a two-day jam session. With such positive response, Rhino decided to release the music on 180g vinyl double LP.
Neal Casal is an American guitarist, singer, songwriter, and photographer. First rising to prominence as lead guitar with Rickey Medlocke's Blackfoot from 1988-1993, Neal was best known as a member of Ryan Adams' backing band the Cardinals, with whom he recorded three studio albums, and of whom he was a member from 2005 until 2009. Casal currently plays in the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, and has released twelve solo albums.
