"Fever Tree - San Francisco Girls -1968 US":
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)".
The group hailed from Houston, Texas and began in 1966 as a folk rock outfit 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.
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.
