"For the first time since its original release in 1970, an exact re-issue of The Human Zoo album, taken from the original master tapes, with all album artwork faithfully replicated! As was the case with label-mates The Human Expression, The Human Zoo were also from the Los Angeles suburbs of Westminster and were also signed to Accent Records. (In fact, the connection between the two bands is greater still, as the Human Zoo were managed by Jim Foster of The Human Expression). The Human Zoo were originally called The Circus; they changed their name to the hipper sounding Human Zoo in 1969. Their album from the following year was pressed in limited numbers and has become a mega-rare collector's item. And what of it? The Human Zoo album is a surprising and quirky blend of psychedelic (trippy), garage (fuzz-guitar), and funky music. The musical diversity, once the cause of some people's griping, is the record's greatest asset in this age of one song downloadable wonderment. The band had chops, could put together a really good song, and did so repeatedly on this sole album. This replica LP edition is limited to 500 copies."
