Woman was the fourth hit song that Paul McCartney gave to Peter & Gordon, the British Invasion-era duo comprised of Peter Asher and Gordon Waller.  A World Without Love, Nobody I Know, and I Don’t Want to See You Again, predated Woman, and were credited to Lennon/McCartney although all three were solo Macca compositions. For Woman, McCartney was pseudonymously credited as “Bernard Webb.” Their connection to Paul McCartney was Peter’s sister, actress/model Jane Asher, who was the Beatle’s pre-Linda girlfriend.

Peter Asher would go on to manage James Taylor and he produced several hit albums for Linda Ronstadt before going into the business side full-time as a VP at Sony. Peter & Gordon did a few reunion gigs in 2005 and 2006. Gordon Waller died in 2009 of a heart attack.
