Magical Soul


Marion, 1969-70

July, 1969 ad with a lineup that seems to be wrong, or a one-off.

Magical Soul included Willie Creagh, later Willie Phoenix on guitar and vocals, originally with Terry White (bass), Tom Favors (keyboards), and Rudy Mason (drums). The band changed drummers with Paul McKinniss listed as the drummer in October 1969, and Billy Sun the drummer in November of 1969. The band recorded one 45 for release on CEI's new rock label Right Now!! The record is pretty interesting garage psych. There was a Roecker's Bakery in downtown Marion which seems to be inspiration for the A side. 

The band seems have been around from 1969 into the middle of 1970, although there is a listing for the band in 1971, by which time Willie was in Litttle Eric.

After this band, Willie formed Little Eric, and after that, Bopper, before becoming Willie Phoenix.
