Nobody knows who were musicians on this strange and unique project!For my own taste,it has overshadowed many bands of that period.No matter was this music of"H.Tical"which sign is on the original copy or of someone another.Thoughts of collectors are that it was a pseudonym for Armando Sciascia,an Italian legendary composer.From filmsy aspects,it is an unpredictable"shoot",full of dramatic moments.There's no master tapes today.Well done transfer from LP by Kismet records.Highly recommended.

The cover states that this was recorded as incidental music for films and tv. I must point out that this album is great. It features the main themes and especially the music used in the chase between Romay and Arno in Jess Franco's Countess Perverse, currently available from Mondo-macabro. If you know the film then, you know exactly what music I mean. A must if you love that film.

Sit Back and Flash Back to the 1970s 9 April 2015
By A. Silverstone - Published on Amazon.com
Distortions is a classic of Italian Psychedelic Prog Rock from 1971. Under the guidance of composer Armando Sciascia, Blue Phantom is a studio band assembled to record this album. Sciascia already a film score composer produced this album for use in film soundtracks, and it feels like a soundtrack album. Legendary filmmaker Jess Franco made ample use of tracks from Distortions.

An all instrumental work, Distortions works better as background music than pieces that require your focused attention. Mixing electric instruments, wind instruments, percussion and the typical synthesizer electronica of the era (think Vangelis and Tangerine Dream), the different works provide a rolling sonic landscape of orchestral prog prop and psychedelic trips in the countryside. The titles of the tracks seem to have little relation to the content (Microchaos, Distillation, Equivalence), although the best title is the final track - Pscho-nebulous.

Chewy Al Dente Blue Sounds 18 May 2014
By John Abar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Funky Italian psychedelic sounds played by session musicians who were boat enthusiasts that sailed the Blue Phantom waters of the Mediterranean Sea searching for mythical sea creatures and recreating the sounds they would make on man made instruments. The drums snap like switchblades opening, the guitars howl like wolves, the bass hits rock bottom with a splat, and the keys open the doors to the soul. A great compliment to fried calamari and a good cheap red wine.
