Here's a link to Circuit Ryder. It's a great lost loner country/psych LP. Very few LP's like this one out there that's for sure.
It's just off a cassette I had with no art or info. Hopefully it will inspire someone to post a better copy with information.

"Circuit Rider" 1980 (C.R 666)
"Circuit Rider" 199 (no label, Germany) [bootleg; inferior sleeve job]

I initially wrote this off as yet another Blessed End but further plays revealed more interesting aspects. Still sort of goofy in places but has some truly freaky biker/Cpt Beefheart late night explorations. The tracks where they break out of their swampy/bluesy mood are the best, such as "Limousine Ride" and "Chinese", which project visions of a biker high on PCP driving over a cliff at 100 MPH, laughing and screaming all the way. Songwriting is essentially non-existent, and the same riffs and rhythms are used throughout, which creates a sameyness that will grate if you're not in the mood. The "Billy The Kid" song is a goofy macho lowpoint not unlike Blessed End, and all over this is an LP likely to appeal to some while others may be puzzled. A late Doors influence can be detected. Several sources claim that it was recorded in 1971, but not released until 1980.
