Magic Bus The Album

Released through Universal Music ‘Magic Bus’ is a massive 3CD collection of 58 tracks that sound-tracked the journeys taken along the ‘hippie trail’ by thousands in the late ’60s, early ’70s

A garishly painted bus still evokes, for us all, the open road and the setting sun. ‘Magic Bus’ speaks of the impact upon the world’s young people of the nascent counterculture; bringing freedom, hedonism and spirituality.

With tracks from the likes of The Byrds, The Who, Grateful Dead and many more, ‘Magic Bus’ opens a window that allows the aromatic atmosphere of a cherished era to filter back to us.

Jefferson Airplane, Buffalo Springfield, Deep Purple, Jethro Tull and many, many more all join us on the way. This music and this journey was truly an immersive experience for those who hit the ‘hippie trail’. Sunlight refracted through a cracked windscreen and roiling clouds of fragrant smoke. Sudden moments of transcendental clarity and focus.

The hum of the engine and a largely unjustifiable belief that the road being followed would lead to where the occupants of the Magic Bus truly wanted to be. But it didn’t matter. The journey is, after all, the destination and this is a trip [in every sense] about far more than sightseeing.

Sit back and enjoy the ride.
