Lee Graham (vocals/bass/flute); John Garborit (lead guitar), Ted Sheffler (keyboards), Dick Powell (harmonica) and Rod Pilloud (drums) made up this enigmatic ‘progressive’ San Francisco group. Their lone album, The Love Cycle, featured an ambitious, extended title-track in which the musicians attempted to compress much of the city’s experimental musical styles. Although not wholly convincing, Crome Cyrcus were applauded for their ambition and in 1969 won a Bay Area songwriting award. However, the group dissolved soon afterwards.
