    Tapestry Of Delights:
    From Blackburn in Lancashire this outfit were originally known as The Lionel Morton Four. Morton had been in the choir of Blackburn Cathedral, whilst Buck had previously played in several other bands including those of Johnny Kidd and Joe Brown. They were certainly one of the more talented groups of this era and had the added advantage of being able to write most of their own material. There was also an American band of the same name who recorded on Stateside but this seemed to have escaped the band’s attention.
    The group had a wide musical range but in commercial terms certainly seem to have fared best with ballads. After enjoying minor success with their debut 45, Do You Want Me To, the 'B’ side of their next 45, Juliet, was hastily flipped to the 'A’ side after attracting airplay and proceeded to replace The Searchers at No 1 in May 1964. They may well be the only band to enjoy a No 1 in this way in Britain. This was to prove their only big hit, although the follow-up, a tearjerker, I Found Out The Hard Way, managed the UK Top 20. A cover of Leadbelly’s Black Girl, was much more uptempo, and like their rework of Buffy St. Marie’s Until It’s Time For You To Go, achieved some chart success.

    Rather like The Fourmost their Merseybeat sound had become passé by 1966 and after a final 45, Tom Springfield’s No Sad Songs For Me, in October 1966, they split up.
    Lionel Morton was first to depart to become a children’s TV personality (he was also married to actress Julia Foster for a while). Fritz Fryer went on to form Fritz, Mike and Mo but rejoined The Four Pennies in April 1966. Later Fritz Fryer went into production with Motorhead and Squeeze. Buck worked in the music industry in various roles and tried unsuccessfully to reform the band to work the cabaret circuit in the seventies. All three of their albums are now quite collectable but Mixed Bag is a particularly expensive purchase nowadays.
    In retrospect, along with The Searchers, they are seen as pioneers of the British folk-rock sound.
