60's British pop trio The Ivy League consisted of members John Carter, Ken Lewis (previous members of Carter-Lewis and the Southerners), and Perry Ford. All three members were session singers who possessed high-pitched singing voices, forming the group in 1964.
Although an initial single "What More Do You Want" quickly disappeared from sight, their second single, "Funny How Love Can Be," turned out to be a surprise U.K. Top Ten hit. Further hits followed, including "That's Why I'm Crying" and a cover of "Tossing And Turning," the latter of which hit number three on the U.K. charts.
The original trio managed to only release a single full-length album, 1965's "This Is the Ivy League", before both Carter and Lewis left the group a year later. With replacement members Tony Burrows and Neil Landon taking the recently departed original members' places. They scored another minor hit, "Willow Tree," before changing their name to The Flowerpot Men.
