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 US on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in June 19681 Like most of the band's material, it was written by the couple of Scott and Vivian Holtzman, who also were their producers2 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 Chart3 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 19704 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
