Artist Biography by

A harmony group reminiscent of the Fortunes, the Ivy League, and the Four Pennies, the Lorne Gibson Trio specialized in a kind of mid-tempo folk-influenced sound. Recording for English Decca in the mid-1960's, their singles included "Hang Up The Phone" and "I Think It's Best To Forget," neither of which made a big splash with the public. The group did rate a spot supporting the Beatles on stage, and appeared with the Liverpool quartet, alongside the Ivy League and the Hollies on a June 1965 BBC broadcast ("The Beatles Invite You To Take A Ticket To Ride"), and appeared in the 1966 feature film The Ghost Goes Gear, starring the Spencer Davis Group, in which they lip-synced to their recordings of "Like Free," "Listen To My Jingle Jangle," and "Meddlesome Matty," before disappearing.
