Fountain Of Youth

From: Fredericksburg, TX, USA

The Fountain Of Youth were a teen group from Fredericksburg, Texas, who previously recorded as The Crossfires. Band members included Jimmy Panza (lead vocals, drums), Gary Itri (bass, vocals), Gary Jenschke (lead guitar, vocals) and Ken Molberg (rhythm guitar, vocals). In March 1968, the Fountain Of Youth signed with the Colgems label, who they would record four singles for. Their last single features “Witness People” on its B-side. The song is a great piece of heavy garage psych with fuzz guitar and gritty vocals.

The band’s Colgems singles were produced by Richard Podolor who had also worked with other psych bands like The Glass Family, The Starfires, The Standells and The Chocolate Watchband.
