Originally a Beatles / Byrds-influenced unit called the MORLOCHS, this "lost" West Coast psych group came together in Merced, California in 1965, but soon shed their original moniker and moved in a more psychedelic direction, becoming a fixture on the ballroom circuit from 1966-1970. Despite nods in the direction of the New Tweedy Brothers and Quicksilver Messenger Service at times, Family Evil is imbued with a distinctive sound that arose from practicing up to six nights a week. The band entertained offers from various labels during their existence, but as they insisted on complete artistic control and ownership of their music, no deals were struck. Studio tracks, rehearsal tapes and a live recording from the Fillmore West. Cover art by NORMAN ORR. Extensive historical liner notes. Edition of 500. Includes free download.
