Alone among their British Invasion cohorts, Chad Stuart and Jeremy Clyde came directly out of the folk clubs of London. The duo specialized in folk-tinged acoustic guitar-based soft pop, like Simon and Garfunkel crossed with a dash of Petula Clark.
Because Chad And Jeremy only released a few albums and didn't have much US chart success beyond the lilting "A Summer Song" and the sprightly "Yesterday's Gone," the several available anthologies all contain pretty much the same material, such as their superior cover of Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas' Lennon-McCartney-penned hit "From a Window." While THE VERY BEST OF CHAD AND JEREMY covers most of this same material, it adds a few tracks not available on other compilations, including "Before and After," the wistful "Distant Shores," and the surprisingly rocking "Teenage Failure."
