Happy Feeling - Happy Feeling (1970)

Hot on the heels of the 49th Parallel's 1969 album came the Happy Feeling's full-length LP on the stalwart Barry label. We had also presented a bunch of Happy Feeling singles last year, but this LP seems to pull their songs into sharper focus - the one-two punch of "Hey, Little Man" and "Still Hill" kick this off with healthy dose of psychedelic soul in their garage rock. Production by the legendary Norman Petty certainly doesn't hurt.

And then there's this amazing photo of the band on Crowchild Trail:

We have to count that as the best local band shot we've ever seen.

Get the Happy Feeling LP here!
