Bio Excerpt from All Music:
Of the many British Invasion acts that stormed the charts in the wake of the Beatles, Chad & Jeremy possessed a subtlety and sophistication unmatched among their contemporaries, essentially creating the template for the kind of lush, sensitive folk-pop embraced by followers from Nick Drake to Belle & Sebastian. Chad Stuart (born in Windemere, England, on December 10, 1941) and Jeremy Clyde (born March 22, 1941, in Buckinghamshire, England) met while attending London's Central School of Speech and Drama. The two became fast friends, and after Stuart taught Clyde to play guitar, they formed a folk duo as well as a rock & roll group, the Jerks. Because he graduated a year ahead of his bandmates, Clyde relocated to Scotland and performed with the Dundee Repertory Theatre. ...

All Music Album Review:
Discussions of the "quiet is the new loud" aesthetic of bands like Belle & Sebastian and Kings of Convenience typically cite primal influences like Nick Drake, Donovan, and the Velvet Underground, but rarely if ever mentioned is a duo that predated them all -- listening to Chad & Jeremy many decades on, it now seems almost as if they pioneered an entire genre, their string-sweetened, pastoral, and hopelessly twee acoustic pop anticipating so much of the sound in vogue at the turn of the century to follow. Collectables' Yesterday's Gone compiles 18 tracks from Chad & Jeremy's chart heyday of 1963-1966, although it suffers by forgoing material from the twosome's subsequent LPs, Distant Shores and The Ark. Leading off with the gorgeously wistful "A Summer Song," the disc weaves together their biggest hits and also features a few unlikely covers, including the traditional favorite "Dirty Old Town" and a suitably autumnal if otherwise baffling rendition of the Sinatra chestnut "A Very Good Year." A solid introduction, with fidelity a notch or two higher than the standard Collectables release.
