The website has gone so quiet! We all have our own memories of this unique band called The Peddlers. To get things going, what is your absolute favorite Peddlers track and what is there about it that makes it so special to you? Come on, let's get talking!

Saw the Peddlers for the first time at the Cavendish Club Sheffield in 1967, the show was brilliant so within days went out and bought Freewheelers LP.

The opening track is Time After Time and every time I hear it I go back to 1967.

Love all their music and it's hard to pick a favourite but Time After Time is my choice.

Nice choice Roy and thanks for your reply. A friend of mine was compere at La Dolce Vita in Birmingham and I got a complimentary ticket to see them in 1971. I was only 19 at the time and did not then fully appreciate how brilliant they were. The singles Birth & Girlie were in my collection but it was Girlie that was always my firm favorite and it continues to be. It was 30 years later when I bought the How Cool Is Cool CD that I really discovered The Peddlers properly. So Girlie is my choice, any more offers?? Let's get talking!

Hi Peter - good effort!

I was hooked when I saw the boys perform BIRTH on TOTP and I then went to see them live at the Top Rank in Swansea. I was hooked! Absolutely loved Girlie/PS.

Lucky enough to see them live at least 3 times? after, including a memorable New Years Eve in 1970? when I sat at their table as their guest - a long story!!

Rarely a few days go by without playing something from their wide repertoire. Not possible to pick an absolute favourite but currently playing This Masquerade from Live in Amsterdam, which although not featuring Tab and Trevor, is a great piece. Still don't understand how they could be called The Peddlers for that gig without 2 members, but a great feast of music nevertheless!

Waiting for Del's response....

Keep the faith and greetings to all from Wales

Thanks Terry for your excellent comments! I hadn't played Live In Amsterdam for a long time but played This Masquerade to remind me how good it is. Wonderful stuff! You sat at The Peddlers table 1970! Terry we need to hear more about that mate, can you fill us in on the details, sounds like something you have clearly never forgotten, we need to know a bit more! Must press you on this but can you commit yourself to an all time Peddlers track no matter how hard that might be? And yes I am looking forward to Del's response. The whole world is looking forward to Del's response! Could also do with Roy Phillips response to his all time favorite Peddlers track. You never know...... Any more offers on your best Peddlers track? Let's get talking.

First of all thank you Peter for rustling up some input to this site which deserves more discussion as Roy & John have created a wonderful base for Peddlers fans.

Now for the hard bit, so many great tracks its very hard to pick just one. For a long time "Girl Talk" was my favourite but since being a fan of Breaking Bad, "On a Clear Day" sums up for me just how good the Peddler's were and is probably the track I would play to friends who have never heard the Peddler's before. I have done a cd compilation to play in the car of my favourite tracks which I could list if anyone is interested.

One can only imagine what heights Roy, Tab & Trevor would have reached if they had not disbanded when they did. They were huge in their day and respected by so many top musicians. I for one am so glad that Roy is still recording and playing live' shows and long may it last.

Thank you Del for your very meaningful comments. I have to agree that On A Clear Day is one of those perfectly executed tracks which makes it a Peddlers favorite. It is certainly well up there in my Peddlers all time greats. Yes it is so good that Roy is still turning out some quality music which I am sure Peddlers fans find so encouraging. Only recently have I caught on to Blue Groove which was actually released in 2014 so I am behind the times! I have just ordered the CD from Roy's website and looking forward to receiving it soon. The title track which for me needed a few plays is now one of my favorite Roy Phillips tracks. If you haven't seen the Blue Groove video on Roy's site, you need to, it is superb! So we have now got a few replies. Who will be next to add their favorite Peddlers track? Come on, let's keep this going - Let's get talking.

What a fabulous CD you have put together there Del! Thanks for sharing that with us. Six tracks you mention are among my favorites and they are Smile, People, Prime Of My Life, Girlie, Tell The World We're Not In and Working Again.

I would also have to add these further six tracks to my favorites compilation. Me & Mrs Jones from Live In London, I Can See Clearly Now from Live In Amsterdam, Handel With Care, Say No More, Let Me Be Turned To Stone and the Live At The Pickwick version of What'll I Do.

So who is next to share their favorites with us. Come on, let's keep talking.

Another favourite track of mine is "Send In The Clowns" from Live' in Amsterdam. I just love the arrangement on that one. Its a real shame that the sound quality of that album is not better. Roy did mention once that he had the original master tapes somewhere but I guess he never found them!

An impossible decision but the first track that came to mind was 'Empty Club Blues' and for something a bit different how about 'Where have all the Flowers Gone?'

It's interesting that the last two posts have included two less likely Peddlers tracks, Where Have All The Flowers Gone and Send in The Clowns. Thanks for your input. Has anyone else got tracks they enjoy which do't get so much of a mention?.

It's also interesting that Empty Club Blues has had several mentions in this chat session. Clearly of the favorites!

So Roy has the master tapes hidden away of Live In Amsterdam. Tell him to get busy searching Del, we could all do with a nice CD release to look forward to. Dream on!

Please can we keep this going, it's good we're comparing notes on The Peddlers and hearing which tracks we get a kick from. Who's next then? - keep talking....
