Tales from a Wizard: The Oral History of Walpurgis recreates the tales of the band behind the ethereal and mysterious The Divine Comedyan album known to the world as Phantom's Divine Comedy: Part 1. This new exploration into one of Detroit's most mysterious rock groups visits the band's earliest days in 1968 as they rehearsed in the basement bowels of a dilapidated Victorian home on the Rochester-Troy border and up its nationally released album in 1974 on Capitol Recordsand beyond.
This intimate history tells the Phantom's story through the words of the family and friends, bandmates and musicians, and Detroit scenesters that spent time with, worked with, and witnessed the band live.
These are the continuing tales of the man who replaced Jim Morrison in the Doors.
R.D Francis previously explored the myth and legend of the Phantom in The Ghosts of Jim Morrison, the Phantom of Detroit, and the Fates of Rock `n' Roll.
