The space fantasy involved trading in slaves, narcotics and minerals as you flew around a fictional universe.

Great Bands from the 70's and 80's - MAGNUM

M A G N U M




I was (and still am) a huge fan of Rock Band Magnum. Albums such as the one above "On A Storytellers Night" which for me is one of those rare albums where every track is a good as the last. Also another is "Vigalante"
