The British Invasion: January 23rd, 1965

March 21, 2012

The Ivy League

The Ivy League perform “Funny How Love Can Be” in 1965.  They managed to only once in the U.S. with “Tossin and Turnin” in ’65.  Many members passed through the ranks from 1964 until sometime in 1966 or 1967 including John Carter and Ken Lewis who formerly were with Carter Lewis & the Southerners.

Tony Burrows was with The Ivy League and he later performed later with The Flowerpot Men and then became the lead voice for Edison Lighthouse (“Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes”), White Plains (“My Baby Loves Lovin”), the Pipkins (“Gimme Dat Ding”), The Brotherhood of Man (“United We Stand”) and First Class (“Beach Baby”)!


Twinkle made her meek debut with “Terry”, her only entry into the U.S. charts – released on the label who paved the way for the Beatles Vee Jay’s Tollie Label.  The song was reminiscent of the Shangri Las “Leader of the Pack”.
