The Ivy League are an English vocal trio, created in 1964, who enjoyed two Top 10 hit singles in the UK Singles Chart in 1965. The Ivy League was formed in August 1964 by three session singers with an extensive vocal range, John Carter, Ken Lewis plus Perry Ford. They were first heard doing background vocals for The Who on their hit single "I Can't Explain" in November 1964 but after that the Who's producers entrusted John Entwistle and Pete Townshend with the backing vocals. Their debut single, "What More Do You Want" generated little interest but the second release, "Funny How Love Can Be" made the UK chart's Top 10. The original trio released just one album, 1965's "This is the Ivy League", before both Carter and Lewis left the group. The duo then set up a production company called Sunny Records. Tony Burrows and Neil Landon replaced Carter and Lewis and the Ivy League released a couple of albums. Several more singles followed, including the minor hits, "Willow Tree" and "My World Fell Down". Success for The Ivy League in the United States was slight, only "Tossing and Turning" appearing in the Billboard charts, reaching No.83 on the Billboard Hot 100. Carter and Lewis next masterminded The Flower Pot Men, hitting No.4 in the UK with "Let's Go To San Francisco". Carter and Lewis then fulfilled the role of managers. Burrows and Landon left The Ivy League to join the touring version of The Flower Pot Men, leaving Perry Ford to carry on with new personnel until he stopped using the name in 1975. In the 1980s, a band started touring under the name The Ivy League which performed the group's hits at nightclubs and 1960s nostalgia events, without connection to the original band that existed between 1964 and 1975.
