I first time I came across Peter Marsh was when I bought an album called Nicol and Marsh in 1979. What I liked about this album was Peter´s voice.

The next time I heard peter sing was in 1980 when the local radio -I never heard it on National radio- played Don´t Be Foolish, I fell in love with this song along with it´s b-side Doesn’t Matter.It is still one of my all time favorite singles.

When I bought the single it was just credited as a Peter Marsh single although now I have just re-bought it (as I stood on my copy and snapped it!!) and as you can see from the sleeve it´s credited to Peter Marsh and Vangelis who wrote the music and also produced this classic single.

There were two more singles on the  Polydor label after Don´t Be Foolish the second one is my favorite of these, it still has a good synth sound to it as does the B-Side I won´t Let You Go.

The final single was Harmony which was covered by Hazel Dean on her debut album and was released as a single in Germany has more of a polished MOR sound I prefer the b-side There´s A Time In Everyday.

I didn’t buy any of Peter´s other solo singles until recently because to be honest with you I didn´t realize they existed.

Peter was also a member of Easy Street along with Ken Nicol – Steely Span,  Albion Band- and Landscape member Richard James Burges. He has also work in a band called  Twist in 1979 and on the Manfred Mann’s Earth  Band album Chance to which he sang on the track Stranded.

In 1982 Peter (under the Alias Tinker) was a member of Blanket Of Secrecy who released one excellent album The Ears Have Walls in 1982.
