    Tapestry Of Delights:

    This pleasant, unassuming pop duo is clearly a marginal case for inclusion here so I've only covered them briefly. Peter Asher was born in London on 22nd June 1944, the son of a Wimpole Street doctor. Gordon was a doctor's son, too, although his mother had evacuated north to Braemer in Scotland during the war, where he was born on 4th June 1945. The two met at Westminster Boys' School. They eventually secured a recording contract with EMI and since Paul McCartney was going out with Peter's sister the duo pestered him to write them a song. The result was World Without Love and it gave them an instant No 1. They followed up with another McCartney composition, Nobody I Know, which also made No 10. However, their third McCartney composition, I Don't Want To See You Again, flopped completely. They wrote some of their 'B' sides and bounced back with a cover of Buddy Holly's True Love Ways, which made No 2 in the UK and No 14 in the USA. They were enormously successful in the USA where Capitol issued ten albums of their material plus a 'Best Of' collection in just four years. In 1966 their version of Lady Godiva won them some notoriety, getting banned in Lady Godiva's home town of Coventry, but their music didn't really suit the psychedelic era and they split in the Autumn of 1968. Peter became A&R manager at The Beatles' newly-formed Apple Records and later managed and produced James Taylor, whom he discovered. Gordon Waller embarked on a solo career and played Pharaoh in the 'Joseph and The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat' movie in the mid-seventies. Today Peter is an LA-based producer and Gordon, a South Midlands businessman.
