The Ivy League - Live On Air 1965-1967 - CD
Perry Ford, John Carter and Ken Lewis were an integral part of the British music scene from the early 1960s onwards, guesting on iconic recordings by The Kinks, The Who, Tom Jones and Sandie Shaw et al. Under the collective guise as The Ivy League, they became the backbone of the British pop chart, working with Mike Leander, Ivor Raymonde, Les Reed and Shel Talmy, and penning hits for The Fortunes and the Rockin Berries. They amassed a flurry of chart hits with Funny How Love Can Be, Tossing And Turning and My World Fell Down before a split in the camp took Carter and Lewis away to enjoy success as the Flower Pot Men in 1967. Numerous radio sessions reveal the hidden history behind one of the UK’s most versatile and overlooked partnerships that helped establish the British 60s pop phenomenon.
London Calling proudly presents the untold story behind one of Britain’s musical stalwarts with a vast array of radio sessions from that most cherished of bygone eras; the 1960s. Professionally re-mastered original Top Of The Pops broadcasts presented in a 4-panel digipak with 9-page booklet containing background liners and rare archival memorabilia.
