Reminded Me of "Circus" The success story continued with the recording of "Sweet Freedom" at the Chateau D’Herouville, France in the summer of 1973. The album was released in the autumn of 1973 and quickly went gold. Gary's song-writing input continued, especially on the song "Circus". The story of this song is still remembered by guitarist Mick Box today: "I wrote this with Gary in LA at the Continental Hyatt House. In France we finished it; the whole studio was in dark and you could only see a few lights. Gary was at the one end of the room and I was at the other. We didn't speak a word to each other and finished the song this way. It was very spiritual". Even drummer Lee Kerslake remembers it with a quote on the “Acoustically Driven” DVD liner notes:: "I like Circus because it was written in the most unusual circumstances with myself, Mick and Gary Thain, God rest his soul, writing by telephone!"
