This is so cool! That effortless piano groove marries perfectly with the calm, collected drum beat.
And Eric Burdon’s singing – truly the icing on the cake…
Burdon was actually a white English guy, but after moving to San Francisco in the ’60s, he quickly got involved with the funk and soul scene.
‘Magic Mountain’ had been released previously in 1970, as the B-side to ‘Spill The Wine’. In 1976, the song appeared on Love Is All Around, with an assortment of other tracks recorded between 1969 and 1970.
