From  Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fever Tree were an American rock group of the  1960s chiefly known for their anthemic 1968 hit San Francisco Girls (Return of  the Native).

The band hailed  from Houston, Texas and started in 1966 as folk rock outfit The Bostwick Vines,  but changed their name to Fever Tree a year later after the addition of keyboard  player Rob Landes. They subsequently moved to San Francisco and got sucked up by  the flower power music scene there.

Their fifteen minutes of fame arrived when their  anthemic song San Francisco Girls reached #91 in the U.S. charts, somewhen late  1968. Like most of the band's material, it was written by the couple of Scott  and Vivian Holtzman who also were their producers. This 4-minute track captured  all the band's trademarks: Dennis Keller's incantation-like vocals, the quick  shifting between slow parts with an almost sacral feeling and faster, more  rock-oriented parts and especially the searing guitar work by Michael  Knust.

Fever Tree also  released their self-titled debut album in 1968, which charted at #156. A second  album, Another Time Another Place followed in 1969. Apart from San Francisco  Girls, they never had another hit, although they later also tried writing songs  themselves when they had dropped the Holtzmans as producers. The band finally  called it a day in 1970 but reformed in 1978 with only guitarist Michael Knust  remaining from the original line-up. This new formation made no impact  whatsoever, and Fever Tree was not heard of again until 2003 when Michael Knust  passed away from an accidental drug overdose.

Fever Tree's first two albums ("Fever Tree" and  "Another Time, Another Time") were re-released on October 31,  2006.
