Crispian St. Peters - Carolina mp3 album
Crispian St. Peters (born Robin Peter Smith, 5 April 1939 – 8 June 2010) was an English pop singer-songwriter, best known for his work in the 1960s, particularly songs written by duo hits, The Changin' Times' including "The Pied Piper" and Ian & Sylvia's "You Were on My Mind". St. Peters was born in Swanley, Kent and attended Swanley Secondary Modern School. He learned guitar and left school in 1954 to become an assistant cinema projectionist.
As a 29-song anthology that spans Crispian St. Peters' entire career, this compilation has the appearance of being the first-choice retrospective of this minor performer's work. Tain't necessarily so, though, because only about half of it is from 1965-1967, the era that most would think of as St. Peters' peak. To little notice, he continued to record through the 1970s and had a 1990 comeback album, and there's a good deal of that stuff on this CD. On the other hand, it does include the original versions.
Crispian St. Peters, born Robin Peter Smith, began his recording career laying down 2 original compositions ‘At This Moment’ and ‘No No No’, both released in 1965 and both sinking without a trace despite the gorgeous vocal range displayed by St. Peters and bringing to mind the golden voice of Roy Orbison. Yes, his voice was that dynamic.
Crispian St Peters was a prime case of ruination by mis-management - from a shy lad with talent to a manufactured braggard all but killed-off any chances he had of sustaining his early successes of 'You Were On My Mind' and 'Pied Piper' - both legendary numbers in their own right. There is, or was, much more to this would-be star than we remember from way back then, and tragic in a way he never realised his full potential. Crispian had several more singles, all but three of which are included in this set. Several B-sides and album tracks are also included. Crispian's life after stardom is sad but it seems that he has come to terms with his situation. Crispian's style began as folk-pop but later tracks have a country influence.
