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 They were not, however, one of the best San Francisco bands, nor were they even very good or psychedelic.
Usually they sounded like Over And Over - Shalamar - The Very Best Of Coke Lovin' Spoonful with whom they shared producer Erik Jacobsenemulating the more unfortunate camp aspects of that group with sleepy, good-timey pop-folk. Personnel changes delayed completion of their first album until nearly a year after "Hello, Hello" was a hit.
