"Phantasmagoria" was the third album from the original Curved Air, first released in 1972. It was recorded during a period of change and upheaval, with at least one departure from the line up and internal debate about their musical direction. Nevertheless, the music remains of the highest order as befits a group that made such an enormous impact on the progressive rock scene. Vocalist supreme Sonja Kristina is heard on her compositions as ‘Marie Antoinette' and ‘Melinda (More Or Less)' and violinist Darryl Way cuts loose on electric violin and keyboards, notably on such interludes as ‘Ultra Vivaldi'. A host of guest musicians form a brass section to fill out the Curved Air sound.
