Live 1969 (CD)
Previously unissued live recording showcasing the final stage appearance by this legendary garage combos original lineup! This 1969 live recording from Mount Carmel High School in Houston represents the final stage appearance by the original lineup of Texas garage combo Fever Tree. With two strong studio LPs for Uni Records behind them, the group began to fragment from internal struggles (as many bands do). Consequently, the label asked for one more album. The group complied and the results are contained in this previously unreleased concert recording, presented here in 180 gram vinyl. Sharpening their chops on the Gulf Coast circuit, followed by a high-profile opening night gig at Hollywoods legendary Kaleidoscope, Fever Tree developed a keen sense of musical drama and dynamics. This versatility is in sharp display on the concerts rendition of their underground radio hit "San Francisco Girls (Return of the Native)." For the rest, Live 1969 focuses on groovers, a perfect set-up for the gliding fuzztones of lead guitarist Michael Knust, the sonic organ of Rob Landes, the thick rhythms provided by E.E. "Bud" Wolfe III on bass and John Tuttle on drumsand the dynamic, driving lead vocals of Dennis Keller. "Dont Come Crying to Me Girl," a song originally found on the bands second album, levitates the band beyond any earthly confines. Elsewhere, the set moves between a soaring cover of Donovans "Hey Gyp," their own power pop "Grand Candy Young Sweet" and a whirlng psych take on Wilson Picketts "Ninety-Nine and One Half (Wont Do)." Playing as if their lives depended on it, Live 1969 captures a band at the height of its powers, forever preserved on this final audio testament.
