Baby Boomers: Peter and Gordon

It's been a long while since we took a break from real estate and posted a Baby Boomers feature.

It was last weekend, that we learned about the sudden passing of Gordon Waller, one half of the 60's duo Peter and Gordon.

P and G were the first British band after The Beatles to garner a US # 1 hit, a distinction in itself. They had quite a decent run between 1964 and 1968.

Sometimes referred to as The Everley Brothers of the British Invasion, here is a partial list of their hits, some forgotten, but quickly remembered within the first few bars by clicking the links:

World Without Love (#1): Written by Paul McCartney, the performance looks to be from Shindig!, Nobody I Know (#12), I Don't Want To See You Again (#16), from The Ed Sullivan Show.

Woman (#14) a particularly nice clip in color and performed live, the tune was another penned by Mc Cartney, this time under a pseudonym, and Lady Godiva (#6). Our selected video clip will be, "I Go To Pieces", (#9), from 1965:

2 minutes and 15 seconds, written by Del Shannon.
