(PR) While mid-‘60s Greenwich Village laid claim to the most vibrant folk scene in the nation, San Francisco sewed its pre-hippie seeds with clubs like the Drinking Gourd, Coffee ’n’ Confusion, My Apartment and hungry i. It was on this circuit that the Town Criers cut their teeth. Perhaps best known as the first band of Marty Balin — later of the Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship — the Town Criers played the Bay Area circuit not with flowers in their hair but with crew cuts.

Collectors’ Choice Music will on April 3 issue rare, never-before-released live recordings from band in the form of The Town Criers: Live in San Francisco. Recognized not only for their great vocal blend and instrumental prowess, combining folk with unexpected jazz twists, the Town Criers consisted not only of Balin (tenor vocals, six-string guitar and string bass) but Jan Ellickson (soprano vocals, piano and guitar), Larry Vargo (bass and baritone vocals, and 6-string classic guitar) and Bill Collins (baritone and tenor vocals, 12-string guitar, 6-string classic guitar and banjo). The group came together when Vargo (then of the Saints three) and Collins (then of the Tallymen) met at the Drinking Gourd and decided to form a quartet. Balin and Ellickson were quickly recruited.
