    Tapestry of Delights:
    The band was formed when the Swettenham brothers and Perry decided to form their own outfit after a brief spell with Tony Rivers and The Castaways, a harmony group who later evolved into a MOR vocal group, Harmony Grass.
    Dear Delilah, an imaginative effort with a rich organ backing, attracted considerable publicity, reaching No 21 in February 1968. None of their subsequent work attained such success, although C'mon Marianne charted at No 31 in August of that year. Their albums contain some interesting music, with a psychedelic taint, but did not attract much attention. Their early songs were good harmony pop but later on they veered towards a very unappealing sort of funk. The group broke up soon after Pete Swettenham left in early 1969.
    However, in 1971 Alexander reformed the group which included Harry Vanda and George Young from The Easybeats, but after one single, Sha Sha, for Deram it disintegrated.
    George Alexander was the elder brother of George Young of The Easybeats, but passed over the chance to join the rest of his family when they emigrated to Australia. He'd earlier been in My Dear Watson.
    Geoff Swettenham became an occasional session musician.
    Of their two albums only the first is recommended.
