2016 release. Originally released in 1971. "Wonderland was formed in the early 1968 in Germany. The five-piece consisted of former members of The Rattles and The Tonics, both Hamburg-based, and The Summer Set from England. Signed by Polydor, they released three singles produced by James Last, including the outstanding hit 'Moscow'. The band went on tour with The Bee Gees, The Nice and Deep Purple. Following a line-up change and internal frictions, the band finally folded in 1970, but the masterminds Achim Reichel and Frank Dostal tried to keep the flame burning as Wonderland Band and a new album called Wonderland Band No. 1. This album was recorded 1971 in Hamburg with a cast of 26 guest musicians, among them the complete James Last Orchestra. For the very first time, this unique mixture of pop, psychedelic folk and progressive rock is released on an official CD and shows the amazing qualities of this project. It was the first and last album of the band, a milestone of German rock music!"
