THE FLOWER POT MEN
Records are not for sale - For your viewing pleasure only

The Flower Pot Men were a British pop group created in 1967 as a result of the single "Let's Go to San Francisco", recorded by session musicians. "Let's Go To San Francisco" was written and recorded by songwriters John Carter and Ken Lewis, previously of Carter-Lewis and the Southerners and The Ivy League. The name The Flower Pot Men was derived from the children's show Flower Pot Men, with the obvious psychedelic era puns on flower power and "pot" (cannabis). The duo licensed the recording to Deram Records, who had a hit but no group to promote it. Carter and Lewis, having no interest in going on the road to promote the record, created the group from a hand-picked collective of recording studio session musicians and vocalists. Led by vocalist Tony Burrows, who had been in the Ivy League, the band also included Billie Davis's backing band, and for a while later Deep Purple members Jon Lord, who replaced Billy Davidson on keyboards and Nick Simper on bass. Carter and Lewis continued to write, record and produce most of the band's subsequent recordings over the next three years. By 1969 the line-up of the Flower Pot Men had changed considerably. They added new musicians and changed their name to White Plains, who scored a hit with "My Baby Loves Lovin'" in 1970. The Flower Pot Men dissolved at that point. Singer Tony Burrows' voice is also heard on many UK hit singles of that era, such as, White Plains: "My Baby Loves Lovin'", Brotherhood of Man: "United We Stand", Edison Lighthouse: "Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)", The First Class: "Beach Baby" and The Pipkins: "Gimme Dat Ding".
