Peters And Lee – The Artist
Peters and Lee were a successful British folk and pop duo of the 1970s and 1980s, comprising Lennie Peters (1931 – 1992, Enfield, Middlesex) and Dianne Lee (born 1949). Before Peters and Lee, Peters was a pianist playing the London pub scene. He teamed up with actress and dancer Dianne Lee in 1970 who would provide backing vocals for Peters’ solo act. They entered the TV talent show Opportunity Knocks, which they won for a then-record seven times. Following their TV success, a record contract was soon signed with Philips Records. They were produced by Philips’ A&R man Johnny Franz, and their management company was International Artists, run by showbiz professionals Phyllis Rounce and Laurie Mansfield. Franz found the song that suited them well, and their recording quickly led to a number one hit; “Welcome Home” sold over 800,000 copies in Britain. A successful first album, We Can Make It, followed, which also reached the number one position, selling over 250,000 copies. Further single hits followed with “Don’t Stay Away Too Long” and “Hey Mr Music Man”. They became household name in the UK and had many Tv appearances until they split in 1980.
Welcome Home – The Song
‘Welcome Home’ is a song made popular by Peters and Lee. Originally written by Jean Alphonse Dupre and Stanislas Beldone in French and translated into English by Bryan Blackburn, the record was produced by Johnny Franz. Coming after their success in the talent show Opportunity Knocks, Peters and Lee recorded “Welcome Home”, which became the duo’s only number one single in the UK Singles Chart, spending a week at the top in July 1973. It went on to sell over 800,000 copies in the UK. The song was used in an advertising campaign by Walkers Crisps when Gary Lineker returned to the UK after playing abroad.
The Block of Flats – The Shape
Modelled into the silhouette of a block of housing flats. A flat (British English) or apartment (American English), is a self-contained housing unit (a type of residential real estate) that occupies only part of a building, generally on a single story. There are many names for these overall buildings, such as studio, garden, penthouse or basement. The housing tenure of apartments also varies considerably, from large-scale public housing, to owner occupancy within what is legally a condominium (strata title or common-hold), to tenants renting from a private landlord.
