1965 Caravan of Stars - Summer Tour

The Summer Caravan was once again headlined by a British act, this time the duo Peter and Gordon.  Their American success was so pronounced that they also signed to headline a Fall tour which I'll document in my next post.  This unit provided some interesting mixes of talent but the concept was beginning to run out of steam.
