This was a beat band formed at the beginning of 1968. Reichel and Tarrach had previously been members of the most famous German beat band The Rattles. Wonderland recorded three singles before Humphries and Franke quit at the end of 1969, to be replaced by Kalle Trapp and Claus-Robert Kruse. One year and a single later the band ceased its activities, with Reichel and Dostal teaming up for the Wonderland Band album, to which Franke, Tarrach, Trapp and Kruse all contributed. All Wonderland singles and four tracks for a projected album were collected in 1973 on a Karusell sampler.
