Crystal Syphon :: Family Evil

The San Francisco ballroom scene of the mid- to late-60s produced some genuinely legendary groups -- Jefferson Airplane, the Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Moby Grape among them. But for every band that went onto stardom, there were dozens of other outfits that never hit the big time, who simply became names on posters for shows at the Fillmore. For decades, Crystal Syphon has been one of those names. But thanks to a recent release on Roaratorio Records, the group finally emerges from the mist -- and they're better than anyone could have expected.
