The Peddlers started making music together in 1964. Like many people I know, when growing up as a teenager in the 1980s/90s I wouldn't have listened to anything that was produced in the 1960s or 70s. But now mellowing with old age, I'm beginning to appreciate a wider variety of music.
I bought this CD by chance after hearing their superb cover version of My Funny Valentine (part of the Live at the Pickwick CD, which sadly doesn't seem to be available anymore...).
Suite London was recorded in the early 70s with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Imagine the kind of music Zero 7 would have produced if they had been about in the 1960s/70s (with only Mozez on vocal duties), and you won't be far wrong.
Indeed, Zero 7 covered The Peddlers track "I Have Seen" on their debut album Simple Things.
This CD is worth the money if only to hear how that track originally sounded. I would certainly recommend this to anyone who likes laid back jazzy, funky sounds.
