Gordon Waller "Gordon" 1972
Vertigo Spiral LP Cat No. 6360 069


Released in 1972 by Gordon Waller of the Sixties duo Peter & Gordon.

While Peter Asher went on to A&R at Apple, signing James Taylor amongst others, Gordon started a solo career in 1968 but little came of it.
By 1972, with longer hair and armed with guitar, living the hippie dream in a caravan and busking in country pubs, it was time for an ill fated comeback.
This record really needs no introduction for Vertigo connoisseurs and experienced record collectors. This, Gordon, the most elusive of all Vertigo LP's, is believed to be one of only 23 copies ever sold.

This album is in the "Top of the Rarest" of all Vertigo Spiral Lable.

Many thanks for the Gordon Waller album. It was released, I think I recall, to a minimum of promotion. Very few noticed it, and even fewer bought it, besides me (at a sale), you and those 21 others. I still find Gordon’s effort “nice enough” in its small way, and it got, perhaps, lost in the deluge of the early 70’s singer/songwriter boom. Sadly, it’s indicative of the record that the (only?) song that sticks to mind is the Loudon Wainwright III cover.
