    Tapestry of Delights:
    This Coventry band are best remembered for hard rock single, Flames, a cut from their first album which narrowly missed the charts in 1967. Featuring Richard Hudson and John Ford of The Strawbs and Hudson-Ford fame the album was full of variety spanning Motown, pop-psych and harder rock genres. Other tracks which catch the ear include the laid back Oscar Brown song I Was Cool, the instrumental Walter Sly Meets Bill Bailey, the Eastern-influenced sitar-based Air, the Beatlesque What's The Point Of Leaving, the melodic Long Nights Of Summer and two tracks - Dream Starts and Reactions Of A Young Man - which veered towards psychedelia.
    For the later single, Volcano, they shortened their name to Velvet Opera and also recorded a second album under that name. Although a popular underground band, commercial success eluded them. Ford and Hudson joined The Strawbs when The Velvet Opera disintegrated. In the seventies Elmer Gantry was in Stretch.
