Devil's Kitchen was a psychedelic blues band that, according to their guitar player, "imploded in mid-1970 from the weight of touring." Stemming from Southern Illinois and named after a lake, Devil's Kitchen had a sound reminiscent of some of the other bands of that era, and upon their move to San Francisco found themselves performing at important concerts alongside the likes of Quicksilver Messenger Service and the Grateful Dead. A regular at the Family Dog's Great Highway events, many of their songs were written as vehicles in which to jam, which surely delighted their local and loyal fans. Some members of the quartet recently found each other again through Vault Radio, where a track of theirs found its way to the ears of intrigued listeners. Some interrogation on the Feedback page as to who exactly was this Devil's Kitchen was answered by members of the band themselves.
