THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH were one of the more stylistically original signings to EMI’s legendary Progressive label Harvest. The band was formed in 1968 and featured brothers Garth and Norman Watt-Roy (who played guitar and bass respectively), along with American vocalist Ozzie Lane, Mick Deacon on Organ, a horn section of Dick Hanson, Tex Philpotts and Ian Aitcheson and drummer Ron Prudence.

Initially beginning life as a Soul outfit, the band’s musical direction changed when vocalist Lane returned home to New Orleans in early 1969. Replaced by Colin Horton-Jennings (who also played guitar and flute), the band began to take on board more "progressive” influences, incorporating rock, jazz and acoustic music into their sound.

An impressive live act, Greatest Show on Earth released their debut album, "Horizons” in February 1970 adorned in a startling Hipgnosis designed sleeve. The album was an excellent work featuring the ambitious eleven minute title track and "Real Cool World” which was released as a single throughout Europe, gaining some chart success on the Continent.
