Go to San Francisco" was written and recorded by songwriters John
Carter and Ken Lewis. The composition, psychedelic in nature, took vocal
and instrumental inspiration from The Beach Boys. The name The Flower
Pot Men was derived from the BBC children's show Flower Pot Men, with
the obvious psychedelic era puns on flower power and "pot" (cannabis).
In the US, they were commonly deemed The Flower Men on radio airplay to
avoid the drug reference.
The duo licensed the recording to Deram
Records, who had a hit but no group to promote it. Carter and Lewis,
having no interest in going on the road to promote the record, created
the group from a hand-picked collective of recording studio session
musicians and vocalists. Led by vocalist Tony Burrows, who had been in
the Ivy League with Carter and Lewis, the band also included Billie
Davis's backing band, and for a while (though not for recordings) later
Deep Purple members Jon Lord, who replaced Billy Davidson on keyboards
in January 1968, and Nick Simper on bass. Carter and Lewis continued
to write, record and produce most of the band's subsequent recordings
over the next three years. wikipedia:
