"Lover To The Dawn" was intended as material for David Bowie's soon-defunct
folk combo, Feathers, which also included Hermione Farthingale, his girlfriend
at the time. "Life Is A Circus" is a Feathers staple.
In late 1968, David Bowie briefly led a trio called Feathers, which also
included his girlfriend Hermione Fatheringale on vocals and guitar, and
guitarist John 'Hutch' Hutchinson (who had played with Bowie in 1966 as part of
the Buzz). More folk-rockish than other Bowie endeavors before or since, they
were a multi-media group that, in addition to performing songs by Bowie and
Jacques Brel, used tape recordings and mime. Feathers never released any
recordings, but Fatheringale and Hutchinson did play on a couple of unreleased
Bowie 1968 tracks, 'Ching-A-Ling' (which eventually came out on the 1984 early
Bowie rarities LP Love You Till Tuesday and 'Back to Where You've Never Been.'
Hutchinson and Fatheringale also added their voices to a remix of a track from
Bowie's 1967 debut album, 'Sell Me a Coat,' which was used for his 1969 short
film Love You Till Tuesday and also came out on the Love You Till Tuesday LP.
Feathers broke up after a few months, when Bowie and Farthingale's relationship
ended, although Bowie continued to work with Hutchinson for a while longer in
1969 as a duo. - AllMusic
