Less than a year after forming in 1966, the Magic Cycle recorded "Let's Run Away," a Canadian hit for the Toronto-based band. The original lineup consisted of Paul Clinch (rhythm guitar, vocals), Stan Theriault (lead guitar, vocals), Pete Young (guitar), Joey Rome (bass, vocals) and Kevin Barry (drums, vocals). Organist Peter Goodale was added in 1970, the same year the band changed their name to the Cycle. Saturday Afternoon Rummage Sale was released in 1970, Magic Music in 1973. With various lineup changes, the Cycle became Choya in 1976.
