The Phantom Raiders - New Sound 67



The Phantom Raiders
:
Garage rock band from Concord, North Carolina, active 1966 to 1967. 

Randy Lee - Lead 
Doug Almond - Bass, Vocals 
Ricky Lee - Rhythm, Vocals 
Eddie Smith - Rhythm 
Mitch Miller - Drums




The group still had some aspects of their sound and playing to work out, as is obvious on their halting account of "Day Tripper," but for a band only half of whose members were in their teens, the Phantom Raiders are pretty impressive. They're much better on Mitch Ryder's "Devil with a Blue Dress On" and even "Gloria." Mitch Miller's drumming is the best part of the band's attack, but most of this album is great fun. The title track is a guitar instrumental filled with Arabesques and pseudo-surf elements.
