Little Eric / Eric

Marion,  1970-32

Little Eric was another band lead by Willie "Phoenix" Creagh. The band was formed after the Magical Soul. Little Eric recorded an LP for private distribution on the CEI label. The group - mainly Willie - wrote all the songs. Along with Willie, the band was Mel McGary, Jim Cummings, and Paul McKinnis. The sound is melodic rock, seemingly influenced by the Beatles "Let It Be", Crosby Stills and Nash, etc. Before the LP was released the band shortened their name to Eric, although for most of their existence they were Little Eric.
