lAKESIDE  Fantastic Voyage  by Lakeside 1980 -

 On CD Fantastic Voyage - 1980 Solar - 1996 The Right Stuff a division of Capitol Records 7243.8-38360-2-4.

Know for their energy-filled 'live' performance and distinctive brand of funk and R&B, the nine member team known as Lakeside enjoyed a run of sixteen chart singles on Solar Records from 1978 to 1987.
The group played in and around Ohio, Oklahoma, Indiana and Kentucky, finally heading out to Los Angeles in 1972.
Fantastic Voyage was not only Lakeside's first gold album: the title track became the team's biggest pop hit and an R&B chartopper, and was revived successfully by rap star Coolio in 1995.

Formed in 1969, US vocalists Tiemeyer McCain, Thomas Oliver Shelby, Otis Stokes and Mark   Woods were augmented by an  instrumental unit consisting of Steve  Shockley (guitar), Norman Beavers (keyboards), Marvin Craig (bass), Fred Alexander (drums) and Fred Lewis (percussion).
Originally based in Dayton, Ohio, USA, this funk group secured its first hit in 1978 with 'It's All The Way Live'. Released on the Solar label, it was the first of a series of popular singles including ‘Fantastic Voyage' (1980), 'I Want To Hold Your Hand'  (1982) and 'Outrageous' (1984), all  of which reached the US R&B Top10. Although guitarist Shockley was an integral part of the Solar house band, Lakeside lacked the profile of  labelmates Shalamar. A three-year chart hiatus ended in 1987, but that year's 'Bullseye' remains the group's last chart entry to date.
