In memory to Lesley (1943-2010)
One of England's top session vocalists, Lesley Duncan sang on recordings by Elton John, the Dave Clark Five, Pink Floyd, the Alan Parsons Project, Michael Chapman, and Joyce Everson and the soundtrack of Jesus Christ Superstar. Her songs have been covered by Elton John, Olivia Newton-John, and Long John Baldry.
Lesley Duncan’s debut album was a modestly engaging slice of early-’70s singer/songwriter rock, though not distinctive enough amidst a rapidly crowding field to command attention. Somewhat like Elton John, she blended parts of folk-rock, the emerging singer/songwriter movement, pop (though less pop than John), and bits of the Band’s gospel-rock flavor. Indeed, the record is best known for Duncan’s own version of her composition “Love Song,” covered by Elton John on Tumbleweed Connection (and way back in 1969 by a pre-“Space Oddity” David Bowie on a home demo that’s since been bootlegged).
