Psychedelic Music: Gandalf - Hang On To A Dream

Gandalf were an influential late 60s psychedelic rock group. They were an American band originally called The Rahgoos and formed by Peter Sando, Frank Hubach, Bob Muller and Davy Bauer. They signed a record deal with Capitol Records in 1967 who made them rename the band Gandalf. They recorded ther first and only LP the same year. But Capitol spurned them and only released the LP in 1969 with the wrong record inside the sleeve. The copies were recalled and damaged the band's career. Capitol didn't promote the record which make the sales worse. Over the years the album's reputation grew and it was re-released by Sundazed Records in 2002.
The audio has the title Hang On To A Dream and it was a success for the group.
