Mystiques


The Mystics, featuring brothers Greg and Larry Magee, Kevin Rowan, and Basil Hughes, were a prodigious teenage band discovered at deep south side Fenger High's talent show by Chess recording artist King Fleming. Their voices betrayed their age, and shortly after, Fleming had them in the studio cutting "Put Out the Fire" and "So Good to Have You Home Again" for an unambitious release on the miniscule Orr label. Dead on the vine, Fleming brought the group to attention of Peter Wright. After Wright suggested a name change to avoid confusion with the Pilsen-area Mystics, who had a minor hit on Teako, the Mystiques single finally saw proper release in January of 1969, and promptly disappeared.
