As part of the first wave of the British invasion, Peter Asher and
Gordon Waller, as Peter & Gordon recorded a number of highly
successful, lushly orchestrated pop singles that blended Phil
Spector-style production sensibilities with Everly Brothers-style
harmonies. Their hits included "I Go To Pieces," "World Without Love,"
"Lady Godiva," "Woman," and "To Know You Is To Love You." Asher went
on to become a successful producer (Linda Ronstadt) and manager
(Ronstadt, Randy Newman, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell). We'd love to
know what Waller is up to. It is also the birthday of Freddie Fender,
and El DeBarge.
