Various Artists - Magic Bus: 3CDs Of Huge Hits From The Hippie Trail Album Review


Well, it does exactly what it says on the box. The 57 tracks on this 'Magic Bus' compilation run from the late 1960s to the early 1970s, but, with remarkable perspicacity, the compiler has mixed them up very cleverly. 

Magic Bus: 3CDs Of Huge Hits From The Hippie Trail Album Review

The CDs are called 'Turn On', 'Tune In' and 'Drop Out' and the songs on each one reflect, more or less, their monikers.

He was one of the reasons why Cream became one of the best live acts of their day and went on to spawn a whole movement of psychedelic rock with bassists from Free's Andy Fraser to King Crimson's John Wetton to Rush's Geddy Lee to Weather Report's Jaco Pastorius building on Bruce’s style.
