Even with the lackluster chart performance, consistent sales of “Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus” over time allowed it to be their best selling LP and their only album to be certified gold. This occurred six and half years after the album’s initial release.
“Animal Zoo,” written and sung by Jay Ferguson, was the album’s first single release. Unfortunately, it only peaked at #97. Additional singles included “Mr. Skin,” which failed to chart during its original release, and one of my favorite Spirit cuts, “Nature’s Way.” However, our mission is to play this underperforming hit by Spirit: “Animal Zoo.”
