Album Review

Imagine a jazzy John Sebastian who's into Eastern culture and vaudeville. This is pleasant, unambitious hippie groove music for a lazy, sunny afternoon. If you're in that mood, it will take you to a warm, fuzzy place.

A Rare Beasty

This has been a favorite of mine since the early 70's and I can't tell you why. Idiot lyrics, passable musicianship, but there is something decidedly infectious about this group. Last listened to on a scratchy 33rpm, never to be found again till now, cannot believe iTunes had this on file! I guarantee you this, you will feel good listening to these odd grooves....you might even find yourself having fun {shudder}.

Lost Gem Recovered

In 1966 in a club in San Franciso I first encountered Sopwith Camel. At the time, it was the first group I'd ever heard singing and joking about dope. Their single album was lost in the Acid Rock scene that was forming up at the time with groups like Jefferson Airplane and Big Brother and the Holding Company. This particular album is much different from the songs and sound of the original group (it's only been 41 years!) but that's okay. Look how long the Grateful Dead lasted and their sounds changed in time.

A minor masterpiece

I first heard this band in 68. My dad brought home a bunch of demo 45s and one of them was a Sopwith Camel single. I don't remember the song but do remember it sucked. 4 years later this album got considerable airplay on KLOL In my home town of Houston(God bless you Crash!) I could not believe this was the same band. The songs on this album have stuck with me all these years. One of my favorites from the early 70s. Brings back a lot of memories
Sleazy Sue, watch what you do,
Don't shake that fiberglass hair on me!
I'm makin my way down Sleazy Street.
It must be half past 3!

Biography

Formed: 1966 in San Francisco, CA

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '60s, '70s

The Sopwith Camel gained some passing mentions in rock histories as one of the first San Francisco psychedelic era bands to record for a national label; in fact, they were the first to have a Top 40 hit, with the vaudevillian "Hello, Hello" in early 1967. They were not, however, one of the best San Francisco bands, nor were they even very good or psychedelic. Usually they sounded like a second-rate Lovin' Spoonful (with whom they shared producer Erik Jacobsen), emulating the more unfortunate camp...
