A wicked blend of rock, funk, R&B, and psychedelic soul....all delivered with an aggressive attack and white hot blue-eyed vocals. Lots of heavy organ riffs and wild fuzz guitar. Formed and led by Toronto's Domenic Troiano on guitars (ex Robbie Lane & The Disciples, Bush, James Gang, The Guess Who). Toronto's Mandala, regarded as one of Canada's best performing live bands in the later half of the 1960's. This was the group's lone album, released on the strength of their Yorkville village performances, and their 2 early singles on the obscure KR label. An extremely well respected band worldwide for their rendition of heavy & exciting R&B garage style flavored tracks. Featuring great tracks such as: "Love-Itis", "Can't Hold Out", "Every Single Day", "Come On Home", "World Of Love", "One Short Year" and many more.
