Fever Tree American psychedelic rock band

Fever Tree 

Fever Tree is a former American psychedelic rock band of the 1960s, chiefly known for their anthemic 1968 hit, "San Francisco Girls (Return of the Native)".

History

The group originated in Houston, Texas and began in 1966 as a folk rock group called The Bostwick Vines. They changed their name to Fever Tree a year later after the addition of keyboard player Rob Landes.
The band briefly entered the public consciousness when their song "San Francisco Girls (Return of the Native)" reached No. 91 in the U.S. on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in June 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 four-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, Fever Tree, in 1968, which charted at No. 156 on the Billboard 200 Chart. A second album, Another Time, Another Place, followed in 1969 and peaked at No. 83 with a third album Creation, charting at No. 97 on the Billboard 200 Chart in 1970. 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 group disbanded in 1970, but reformed in 1978 with only guitarist Michael Knust remaining from the original line-up. The new formation of the group had little commercial success; Fever Tree was not heard of again until 2003 when Michael Knust died.
Fever Tree's first two albums (Fever Tree and Another Time, Another Place) were re-released as a single CD on October 31, 2006. Fever Tree's third and fourth albums (Creation and For Sale) are also available as a single CD.
Their recording of "Ninety-Nine and a Half (Won't Do)" by Steve Cropper, Eddie Floyd, and Wilson Pickett was sampled as the primary riff in Madvillain's "America's Most Blunted" from their 2004 self-titled debut.

Gruppo texano nato nel periodo post psichedelico per merito dei produttori Scott e Vivian Holtzman e guidato dal tastierista e pluristrumentalista Rob Landes. I Fever Tree pubblicano 4 album tra il 1968 e il 1971, a metà tra rock acido e melodico,con varie citazioni classiche e pop. FEVER TREE contiene una rielaborazione della toccata e fuga di Bach, oltre a una medley dei Beatles e a un brano di Neil Young. In ANOTHER TIME... compare Grand  Candy Young Sweet, scritta  da Frank Davis, musicista e tecnico del suono (fra gli altri con i 13th Floor Elevators). Landes e Tuttle abbandonano nel 1970, pur collaborando in 2 brani di For Sale, il loro migliore album, con una intera facciata dedicata a Hey Joe. In formazione compare il batterista Kevin Kelley, ex Rising Sons e Byrds. Dopo lo scioglimento,  Kelly e Johnson in JESSE WOLFF & WHINGS, con Billy Wolff dei Fusion e Jess Neal Barrish.


 La band da Houston, Texas e ha iniziato nel 1966 come corredo folk rock, The Vines Bostwick. Hanno cambiato il loro nome in Fever Tree, un anno più tardi, dopo l'aggiunta del tastierista Rob Landes.
I loro quindici minuti di fama è arrivata quando la loro canzone "San Francisco Girls (Return of the Native)" raggiunse la posizione # 91 nelle classifiche USA, qualche volta nel tardo 1968. Come la maggior parte del materiale della band, è stato scritto dalla coppia di Scott e Vivian Holtzman, che erano anche loro produttori. Questo brano di quattro minuti catturato tutti marchi di fabbrica della band: la voce di Dennis Keller incantesimo-like, il rapido spostamento tra le parti lente con un sentimento quasi sacrale e più veloce, le parti più rock-oriented, e soprattutto il lavoro di chitarra bruciante di Michael Knust.
Fever Tree anche pubblicato il loro album omonimo di debutto, Fever Tree, nel 1968, che piazza al # 156. Un secondo album, Another Time, Another Place, seguito nel 1969. Oltre al "San Francisco Girls", non hanno mai avuto un altro successo, anche se in seguito anche provato a scrivere canzoni se stessi quando avessi lasciato cadere la Holtzmans come produttori. Il gruppo si sciolse nel 1970, ma riformato nel 1978 con solo il chitarrista Michael Knust che rimane della line-up originale. La nuova formazione del gruppo ha avuto poco successo commerciale; Fever Tree non si seppe più nulla fino al 2003, quando muore Michael Knust.

Fever Tree- Man Who Paints The Pictures ... Fever Tree_ Another Time, Another Place (1968) full album ...
Don't say there's no tomorrow
When a silver bird can sig
There's a promise of forever
Every dawn can bring
So you want to build a mountain
So you want to climb real high
Stack your dreams one on another
Walk up to the sky
CHORUS:
For the man who paints the pictures
He will hear you if you call him
The man who paints the pictures
Will catch you if you fall
Take my hand and walk beside me
There's a voice that you should hear
We will dream our dreams together
Trust and have no fear
Repeat CHORUS
(Whispered - unintelligible)
Repeat CHORUS
(Whispered - unintelligible)

Fever TreeUnlock My Door [Uni Records, 1968] American psychedelic rock band Dennis Keller -- vocals ...
Unlock my door, I'll be waiting
You'll find me alone in the chair
Don't touch the light, follow my music
Come in, come in, I'll be there
You'll find my key, there in the garden
In the statues hand
Don't try the first door, I'll explain later
Come in and you'll understand
I never asked but once
So come in for a while
I'll wait for you a moment
Then go
I'll remember your smile
Unlock my door, I'll be waiting
You'll find me alone in the chair
Don't touch the light, follow my music
Come in, come in, I'll be there

Fever Tree ~ The Sun Also Rises from their first album, the self-titled "Fever Tree" released in 1968.

Take a look into tomorrow
When everything is gray
Borrow from tomorrow
And you will find your way
[Chorus]
When you're standing in the middle of the road
Going nowhere (going nowhere)
And it's raining (and it's raining)
Going nowhere (going nowhere)
And it's raining (and it's raining)
Going nowhere
The sun also rises
The dark will go away
The sun also rises
As night walks into day
[Chorus]
The sun also rises
The dark will go away
The sun also rises
As night walks into day
You know the sun also rises
The dark will go away
The sun also rises
As night walks into day
