    Tapestry of Delights:
    This London-based band was put together by Sid Bacon in late 1966 who was keen for his son Maurice to have a group to play in. They played at various London clubs and enjoyed a Marquee residency before going professional in mid-1967 when Fisher left to go to college and was replaced briefly by Peter Bardens from Shotgun Express but then by Lyton Guest.
    After recording a cover of Jagger/Richards' She Smiled Sweetly for Decca they switched to CBS, recording a version of Everlasting Love, which had been a hit in the US for soul singer Robert Knight. Rather unexpectedly it shot to No 1 in January 1968 - it was one of those classic pop songs with immediate appeal. They covered another Robert Knight song, Rainbow Valley, for the follow-up and again it made the UK Top 10.
    Lacking any real songwriting ability themselves they turned to Philip Goodhand-Tait material for their next three singles - A Day Without Love, One Road and Bringing On Back The Good Times - which were all competent and appealing pop singles. However, their longer-term prospects were damaged by revelations that they didn't play on their albums.
    By early 1970 Steve Ellis had recorded a solo 45 and then departed to form Ellis and then Widowmaker. He was replaced by Gus Eaden. By 1971 Bacon and Fisher left to form Morgan, though the latter went on to Mott The Hoople. Jackson left too soon after but the group soldiered on until Lynton Guest departed to form English Rose. Basically, Love Affair were a good pop group, no more and no less.
