Playing like their very lives depended on it, they break out a psychedelic spin on Ninety-Nine and One Half (Won't Do) and rock Hey Gyp ; their underground hit San Francisco Girls (Return of the Native) , and more.

The first album by Fever Tree, released in the summer of 1968, is regarded as a cult psych-rock classic by aficianados of the era, but like many, I'd always wondered wondered what they sounded like live (not very good, from what I'd read and heard from first person accounts).
Now we can all decide for ourselves, thanks to this "limited edition" release of the original Fever Tree lineup's final live performance at Mt. Carmel High School (!) in Houston Tx, early 1969. As it turns out, the band was very good live, but sounding little like the elaborately arranged tracks that they contructed in the studio. It's interesting to note that Fever Tree's studio/live dichotomy was similar to that of the early Pink Floyd, who would perform 15 minute versions of "Interstellar Overdrive" onstage, but would refuse to perform pop single material like "See Emily Play".
Here we have extended, improvisational versions of "99 1/2" and "Hey Gyp", while eschewing "Filagree & Shadow" and "Rain Song". The main attraction here is the acid guitar wizardry of the late Michael Knust, whose leads often ascend into sustained metallic wails reminiscent of original Iron Butterfly guitarist Danny Weis, and the organ fills of Rob Landes. Unfortunately, the rhythm section of Wolfe and Tuttle is mostly time-keeping, lacking the dynamics to lift the jamming segments beyond intermittent self indulgence.
Now for the caveats (and the rationale for only three stars). First, the sound quality is just adequate for the time period, though Bob Irwin must be commended for his engineering. Also, we only get a 40 minute set, which is actually adequate for the band's jamming skills.

When I think of all the times I heard this group play live, both at high school dances and at the Living Eye club it makes me wish just ONE of those performances were available on CD. They blew away several "bigger" bands that came through Houston when they were "just" the opening act. This recording, however, is not up to their normal live performance standards.

The original band reformed for one concert in the 70s opening for Billy Joel, and that too would have made a great release - too bad that this is the only thing out there. And what a crime that Dennis Keller didn't go on to be a star - his voice was one of the best rock voices ever recorded.

i've been waiting for years for some live fever tree to come out and here it is. i thoroughly enjoy this cd and concert. i disagree with the other critics who complain about the quality and singer. is this a pristine recording? no. it was recorded in '69, that's over 40 years ago! and dennis' singing doesn't sound good, not because of his performance, but the mike is distorted and muted, much like a lot of recordings from that era. the band itself sound great! my only complaint about the entire cd is the last song, san francisco girls, fades out. i would have loved to heard the whole song or more of the concert. thank you sundazed for putting this recording out. i certainly would love to hear more live material from Another Time, Another place era. disc comes with informative booklet too.

In response to the above comments, reportedly at the time of the concert, some of the band members were not speaking with each other and that the band was breaking up. The band was obligated contractually to record one more album in 1969. This could explain the quality of the concert. A Fever Tree band in 1978 did play at the Texas Opry House.

This CD was awful. Denise Keller sounds awful here and he is my favorite. I love fever tree, but they should not have released this garbage.
