4.0 out of 5 stars Great pop songsters without a doubt December 13, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of a pair of almost lookalike duos (the other being Chad & Jeremy); these guys hit with the beautiful Lennon/McCartney song "A World Without Love" and took it to the top of the charts. The songs the Beatles threw P&G's way were probably less suited for the Fab Four than for them; the duo really did something good for these songs, most especially with "I Don't Wanna See You Again", probably my favorite of their first three. "Nobody I Know", though probably the weakest, still comes in with at least 4 stars.
They then switched gears from this groovy mid-tempo bounce into more a ballad mode, and stayed there for quite awhile. My favorite from this part of their career was their rendition of the Del Shannon tune "I Go to Pieces" which was a gorgeously mournful breakup/goodbye song. Buddy Holly's "True Love Ways" and McCartney's "Woman" are also quite stellar, and emotionally very satisfying.
In the latter part of their short career, they got into humorous songs, a bit like the Kinks did around the same time, but of course with a very different sound than the Davies crew, and a lighter touch in terms of the lyrics. When I first heard these songs as a callow youth, they kind of left me cold (I was a bit of a serious bloke at the time). But I now feel they are as high quality as their more beautiful and emotionally stunning earlier songs. The standouts here are, of course, "Lady Godiva" and "Knight in Rusty Armor". "Knight" is particularly awesome melodically, and very, very generous in the humor department. Quite quirky and cute . . . you might say that. "Sunday for Tea" is also very much the number. Very British, you know!

5.0 out of 5 stars fine CD retrospective January 31, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The Ultimate Peter & Gordon gives us an excellent overlook at the artistry of Peter & Gordon. The quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork is very nicely done.

The album starts off so nicely with their classic hit entitled "A World Without Love." Peter & Gordon harmonize well to this tune and the lyrics are very well written. The drums and guitars make the melody quite catchy and memorable; I predict that you will like this song if you haven't already heard it.

"I Don't Want To See You Again" has a lush musical arrangement while Peter & Gordon sing this sweetly. Their voices are full of masculine warmth and their excellent diction bolsters their performance. The modulations between major and minor keys work well for "I Don't Want To See You Again." In addition, listen for "Love Me, Baby." This middle 1960s tune reflects a somewhat harder rockin' style carried well by the electric guitars; and there's also "I Go To Pieces." "I Go To Pieces" is a beautiful love ballad that places Peter & Gordon squarely in the spotlight as the arrangement makes great use of the guitars, flute and more. Great!

"Don't Pity Me" isn't the strongest song on the album; but it is quite well written; and I really like "To Know You Is To Love You." Peter & Gordon sing this ballad in their fine tenor voices; "To Know You Is To Love You" becomes a masterpiece in their capable hands! For a more playful type of song, listen for "Lady Godiva." "Lady Godiva" has a unique twist to the story and I think you'll get a kick out of this song!

"My First Day Alone" repeats the general formula of the two singers harmonizing to perfection; and they sing this awesome song about their feelings after a breakup with their women.

"The Ultimate Peter & Gordon," released in 2001, is the best collection available for a decade. Peter Asher and Gordon Waller were the rock duo who had the distinction of being the first group in the British Invasion other than the Beatles to have a #1 hit with "A World Without Love." Of course, the explanation for this success was that Asher's younger sister Jane was Paul McCartney's girlfriend during the first part of the Sixties. This connection paid off with two other hits for Peter & Gordon in "Nobody I Know" (#12) and "I Don't Want to See You Again" (#16). It is not surprising that the first three tracks on this collection are the trio of Lennon & McCartney songs. However, even without their recoding discarded Beatles songs Peter & Gordon would be remembered for their novelty hit "Lady Godiva" (#6).

A key thing to remember with these twenty tracks is that they are arranged in chronological order of when they were recorded rather than when they were released, for what that is worth (I am not enough of a fan to catch the value of the resequencing). What you have are the fourteen songs that made it to the Billboard chart, which means not only the songs you remember like the above along with "Woman" (#14) to go with ones you might have missed, such as "I Go to Pieces," "The Jokers," and "To Show I Love You." The other six tracks are a single that did not chart ("You've Had Better Times), a pair of B-sides ("Love Me, Babye" and "The Town I Live In"), and a trio of ablum tracks ("I Still Love You," "Broken Promises," "My First Day Alone"). It is hard to quibble with the results and if you only own one Peter & Gordon album this one has to be it because it easily lives up to its title.

These guys sing really well together, creating some wonderful harmony. They do well with sweet love songs, but their gentle voices didn't do justice to the Theme from High Noon
