    Thanks so much for the Denny Laine compilation – thoroughly enjoyed, can we have some more? I had forgotten how good the Electric String Band sounded, Steve.

    Great to find your site.Was impressed with The Dawnbreakers/Amazing Friendly Apple articles as I was involved with them in the sixties.
    However,I would like to appeal to those of you out there with an extensive knowledge of Denny Laine.I have in my possesion a complete press pack relating to Denny Laines Phoenix.It has signed photos,a biography and a flyer in a folder.The guy I got it off told me that the tour never took off but there is someone currently selling on EBay a contract for the Band to appear in Bristol Colston Hall.I queried the sale but the seller was clueless as to wether the gig ever took place.
    I would appreciate help on this.Keep on Truckin.Pete

    Hi there

    I did a fairly extensive article on his Electric String band at:

    I would like to try and get these tracks released on CD if anyone can help?

    Fell in love with that voice when I was in high school in 1965. What an INCREDIBLE musician!!! Always wanted to see him in concert but alas it was not to be. Wish the powers that be wouldn’t have pigeon hoped him in his early career as he had so much to contribute to the musical world. Hard to see someone you admire so much being relegated to backup. Denny you are amazing! Would love to hear more of him on your podcasts! Thanks so much.

    Sorry the phrase I was going for was pigeonholed not hope. 🙂
