John Pantry is a musician, singer, songwriter, audio engineer (at IBC Studios, for the Small Faces and on the first three Bee Gees L.P.s) and record producer from Harrow, Middlesex, England. He's been active since the late 1960s. Following his studio work in London he became a Christian through the influence of the many Christian artists for whom he produced albums, and toured internationally as a Christian singer and speaker. In 1990, he trained as an Anglican minister and he was ordained in 1993 and currently hosts a programme on Premier Christian Radio called Inspirational Breakfast.
John was educated at Belfairs High School, Leigh on Sea, Essex. Whilst living in this area, he played keyboard for the local band, Sounds Around. Amongst the many gigs they performed was one on the rooftop of The Peterboat Inn, Leigh. The band also performed on the same bill as The Cops 'n' Robbers, who are known for their legendary three-week stint on the 60's rock programme, Ready, Steady Go. He was also a member of Peter & The Wolves, an accomplished mid 60s suitably psychedelic pop group from Leigh-on-Sea/Southend and had a major hand with many other IBC studio projects of the time: the Factory, Sounds Around, Wolfe, The Bunch and Norman Conquest.
This 7", 45 RPM, Single was released in UK on the 20th March 1970 and its A-side is a cover of James Taylor’s famous, melodic and breezy “Something in the Way She Moves”. "Something in the Way She Moves" was written by James Taylor appearing on his 1968 debut album for Apple Records. It has also been covered by other artists, including Tom Rush and Harry Belafonte. The opening line inspired George Harrison to write the #1 Beatles' song "Something." According to James Taylor's stage banter at The Star in Frisco July 31, 2017, this was the song he played for Paul McCartney and George Harrison as an audition before signing with Apple Records.
As recorded by Peter and the Wolves it is perhaps the most different sounding out of all the extensive work of the band's lead and producer John Pantry. According to one recent review of a compilation of his work "coming on like Jethro Tull-lite".
