Magic Bubble (1970)

This one's by request. Don't expect psychedelic music here. The album is comprised of late sixties heavy rock, but in a good way (even it's not my favourite music). The best songs to my ears are the melancholic opener "I'm Alive" and the heavy psych-rock stomper "Whiskey Fire". The band was from Hamilton (Ontario).

Tracklist:
- I'm Alive
- Whiskey Fire
- If I Should Ever Love Again
- Changes
- Cry Cry
- Circles
- Sunshine Man
- Back To Toronto
- Me & Mr. Hohner
- Summertime

Personnel:
Frank Rondell (vcls)
Rita Rondell (vcls)
Wade Brown (gtr)
Brian Kirkwood (bs)
Paul Benton (organ, piano)
Sonny J. Milne (drms, perc)

Hamilton (Ontario/Canada)
