For decades Crystal Syphon mostly was a footnote in music history books: a name on posters from the psychedelic ballroom days, and a fond memory to those who'd seen the Merced, California band perform on the west coast circuit in the late 1960s. This changed with the release of 'Family Evil' in 2012. That archival debut album caught the ears of fans worldwide, garnering raves and equal-footing comparisons to Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Airplane and the Byrds; the group reunited and began playing out again, with their vintage sound intact. 'Elephant Ball' is a second serving of unearthed material from the band's archives. Starting with three garage and folk-rock tracks from their earliest recording sessions (1967) under the Crystal Syphon name, it then moves on to a Fillmore West gig from November 1969, featuring the final incarnation of the group during their original run.
