Does anyone know of any photo of him? Or where he was born?

Read about a possible reissue of John Phillips “John” LP here: https://johnkatsmc5.blogspot.com/2017/07/john-philips-john1969-south-africa.html?m=1
Does anyone know anything more about this, if a reissue is really happening?

It is rare that I RAVE about an album but in this case it's deserving in all respects.
What a great singer, composer, lyricist, musician and on top of all of this, it's a premium quality South African recording.
This is a rare gem that few will discover. It is my on-going quest to locate John Phillips, to discuss his music, to express my appreciation for this album and perhaps have him autograph the two copies I am privileged to own, which are in almost NMC.

I am lucky enough to own a copy of this amazing LP. One of only three copies that have surfaced so far in the entire world. Thirteen original songs featuring sparce but clearly psychedelic instrumentation including occasional flute tabla and finger cymbals. Vocals and lyrics are reminiscent of Syd Barett, Arthur Lee, Donovan et.al. Very little is known about John. He was a pale skinned Zimbabwean who also happened to be a transexual living in South Africa's repressive apartheid regime. Apparently maybe less than 200 copies were pressed and of those many were seized and destroyed by security police. Plans are a foot to do a reissue sometime in the near future, so keep your eyes and ears open for further news.
