    (shocked) Wow! - Amazing, didn´t expect this at all.
    Reading the band member´s name I was sure this´d be just another mix-up of our small country with down under (AUT vs. AUS). (wink)
    But hey - no way, this actually is a vintage Austrian rock band from Styria, evolved from Magic 69 (1969-1974), renamed to Magic (1974-1982).
    See here for their discography and band infos.

    There´s quite some confusion about the band members. Many sources tell us that "Magic are: K. Brown / D. Gibson / G. Johnson / J. Mallett / T. Vince", but to me there´s no hint they ever used these pseudonyms. If so, then for this single at the very most.

    Line-up:
    According to Tom at his blog, the line-up on this single is:
    Günther Timischl, Boris Bukowski, Andi Beit, Gerhard Fuchs and Harald Brunner (- but I doubt that he is 100% right with this).
    Anyway, quite interesting names in the history of AustroPop ("Austrian Pop & Rock"):
    • Günther Timischl (Magic 69, Magic, Erste Allgemeine Verunsicherung/EAV, S.T.S., Opus) = Vocals: Quite famous musician over here, most notably for being a third of S.T.S.. He´s doing vocals on this single, before Boris Bukowski took over in 1975/76.
    • Fritz "Boris" Bukowski (Music Machine, Magic 69, Magic, Boris Bukowski) = Drums (later took over vocal duties)

    Got to do some research on the others, all I´m sure is 3 guys from the cover (from left to right):
    (1) Andi Beit - (2) ??? - (3) no idea who the guy with the wit is (eek) - (4) Günther Timischl - (5) Fritz "Boris" Bukowski.

    Well, i hope you enjoy the Music (rockon) .

    Though a little note, Vigil Side B has a few scratches .
    So the recording sadly includes a few skips and such .

    Sorry .

    Many thanks for the upload 1974, it's a new one to me & an enjoyable slice of the times.
    I had a go at making it a bit more listenable by attempting to remove some of the crackle & popping & i also tried fixing the skips on the flip-side.
    Overall, I think it's a definite improvement, although the intro to 'Vigil' is still far from perfect.
    Hear for yourself:
