Crispian St. Peters was a folk/pop singer-songwriter who enjoyed significant success in the mid-60s, his career fuelled by some infamous boasts about his musical talents (his claim that he was better than Elvis and The Beatles caused an outrage at the time). Signing to Decca in 1965, Crispian broke through with the UK No. 2 hit You Were On My Mind in 1966 (it also made the Top 40 Stateside), followed by perhaps his most famous song, The Pied Piper, which was Top 5 on both sides of the Atlantic. He also had a minor UK/US hit with Changes. The Pied Piper does exactly what it says on the package: for the first time, this remastered 2CD set offers Crispians complete recorded output for various labels across nigh on a decade, starting with early singles At This Moment and No, No, No and ending with a one-off single for Santa Ponsa. Both of Crispians albums are represented in their entirety: his 1966 Decca album Follow Me (issued in similar form on Jamie in the US as The Pied Piper); and his scarce 1970 album for the obscure Square label, Simply Crispian St. Peters.

Crispian St. Peters was born Robin Peter Smith in Swanley, Kent on April 5, 1939. In the beginning, his stage name was Woody Smith. When Smith was signed to a new 10 year contract, the first stage name suggested was Crispin Blacke – to match his new saturnine image akin to that of Dave Berry. But he hated it, and compromised: Crispian St. Peters. He had chart successes in UK and US in the late 60s. His two main labels were Decca in UK (Jamie in US) and Square. In 1995, at the age of 55, he sadly suffered a major stroke, which left him paralysed in his right arm, but he relearned to play his guitar using just one finger of his right hand. He eventually retired due to worsening health. In 2003, he died on June 8, 2010 at the age 71.Read more ›
