    Tapestry Of Delights:
    Formed in 1964 when John Carter and Ken Lewis (real names John Shakespeare (no joke!) and James Hawker), previously of Carter-Lewis and The Southerners, joined forces with Perry Ford (real name Brian Pugh). All three were session singers with songwriting ability and a clear liking for high-pitched vocals, and decided to record under their own name of The Ivy League. After their initial 45 flopped, Funny How Love Can Be, a song with instant appeal and high-pitched vocals which typified their style, took them into the Top Ten. The sadder but otherwise similar That's Why I'm Crying was a minor hit, but was followed by their finest moment, Tossin' And Turnin', which made No 3 over here and No 83 in the US. Their album, This Is The Ivy League, was a rather odd mixture of their own songs and other people's. During 1966 Carter and Lewis left and Burrows and Landon came in as replacements. Their final, if minor, hit was Willow Tree but the following year they returned as The Flowerpot Men.
    During their hit period they used a backing group called Division Two (Clem Cattini (bs), Mickey Keen (gtr), Mike O'Neill (piano, organ), Dave Wintour (drms)), who also recorded a great instrumental beat/R&B album, Discotheque (Society SOC 1016) in 1965.
    The eighties saw a band of this name working the night club circuit but it contained none of the earlier members.
