Phantasia - Phantasia (1972 us, fantastic psychedelic rock)



Reissue of US psychedelic ultra rarity recorded 1971/72. The original albums (a complete one and a one-sided) are legends for all psychedelic/garage collectors, only 25 copies pressed of each -- not many people have the pleasure of having seen a copy.

The music is creeping slowly and sensitively in your mind, whether stoned or not φ it takes you wherever you want. Those are the complete sessions, 55mins in mastertape quality presented the first time to the public -- extremely informative booklet (20 sided), with outstanding artwork and colour photos.

One of the best Psychedelic albums, playing in the same league as Fraction, Music Emporium, Hunger, Mystic Siva, Damon. Later the band changed into Trizo 50! Here are the complete sessions in mastertaped quality with 20sided informating booklet, including outstanding artwork and photos!

Hello my name is David Johnson. I am the lead guitar and vocalist for Phantasia back in the day. Bob Walkenhorst is living in Kansas City and plays around there solo. Plus The Rainmakers are back together and have been for a few years. They play in KC too but also all over. They have been back to Norway a couple times just last year. Norway was where they had such a big fan base and have been welcome there with open arms. As for me I have played with different groups all threw my life and finally retired from playing in January 2017. Hope I helped with some information for you.

Bob Walkenhurst later was in The Rainmakers from St. Louis, I believe. Now he's reportedly playing solo around Minneapolis or so I've read.
