Hello Hello

Sopwith Camel was an American rock band with several distinctions… they were the second San Francisco band to get a national record contract, and the first Frisco band with a top 40 hit.  Their 1967 “Hello Hello” reached #26 on the hot 100 and was considered one of the first psychedelic hits, although realistically it’s very vaudevillian in it’s sound.  Sopwith Camel broke up six months later, reforming for three years in the 70’s, but they never again experienced the success of “Hello Hello”, today’s forgotten oldie.
