    Tapestry of Delights:
    A London-based US-born artist, who was backed by The Rain, a pretty typical beat-cum-psych late sixties outfit. More interesting than the above 45s is the album, Gary Walker And The Rain Album, No 1, which was only released in Japan. It includes some of the better 45 cuts but also contains a few psychedelic gems, particularly If You Don't Come Back, which is very psychedelic and has some great guitar work and an instrumental, Thoughts Of An Old Man. Two other cuts, Magazine Woman and Market Tavern are sort of mod/pop/psych, the latter with lots of phasing too. Recommended.
    Gary Walker, incidentally, was one of The Walker Brothers, until he was ousted in 1967. As Gary Leeds he'd been in the early Standells. Then in 1966 frustrated at his limited role in the band he began a solo career. His first two efforts were minor hits and then he formed Rain with former Cryin' Shames' guitarist Paul Crane and ex-Masterminds' guitarist Joey Molland.
    They kicked off with a cover of Spooky, which had been a big US hit for The Classics IV. They followed this with a cover of The Easybeats' Come In You'll Get Pneumonia, which was backed by the self-penned Francis, a superb slice of pop-psych. Gary Walker sometimes went under the name Gary Leeds and his 45s are often credited as such.
    The Gary Walker And The Rain, No. 1 album has been bootlegged on vinyl, and has also been reissued officially on CD with three bonus tracks - Francis, I Can't Stand To Lose You and Come In You'll Get Pheumonia.
    Joey Molland was later in Badfinger. Lawson (ex-Universals) went on to play in
    Lace.
