Had he lived, Denny would have turned 74 today. It's tempting to contemplate what he would have been doing today on the musical front...

Happy birthday, man. You are so missed.

I heard this for the first time today. I may have a go at the lyrics some time...



Great extended guitar wail at the end!

Wow! Thought you would of heard this classic before. Nevertheless a cool beat!

On the subject of Dennis. Have you heard "Love Affair" from the upcoming release of the '68 sessions, John? A haunting track.

Nope. New to me.

This is nice too. Elements of "Be With Me"--and "Surf's Up", as a commenter suggested.

Agreed! In my opinion Dennis was very emotional with his music and feel---genius in many ways.

I'd always had trouble with this version--all those ma-ma-ma's got a bit tedious--but I'm warming to it now:

I don't often rate demos of released tracks highly but this is stupendous. With thanks to filledeplage at EH for reminding me of it. According to AGD, this is the BB studio version from 1973, with Blondie and Dennis sharing lead vocals (thanks, Billy C).



I roared with laughter when I noticed one of the commenters was called Lawrence Labia. A Few Thoughts on Dennis - Page 2 Laugh

I didn't know that. Interesting stuff. I always liked that demo, I think the guitar mix is awesome! With that said, did AGD elaborate further if Carl and Al were doing the guitars?

Yes, the guitars sound great! And that percussion at the end.A Few Thoughts on Dennis - Page 2 Rolleyes  

That's all AGD said as a comment to that vid. I'll see what else I can find tomorrow.A Few Thoughts on Dennis - Page 2 Wink

Lean pickings, infortunately. According to jackjachman at Smiley: "Recorded with the Beach Boys, seems the backing track was kept for Dennis' solo version". And that's all. I can only assume that Alan and Carl play the guitars. I suppose no one knows for sure.  A Few Thoughts on Dennis - Page 2 Mellow

I've enquired at Smiley. I'm hoping c-man or someone equally knowledgeable has some ideas on the subject. A Few Thoughts on Dennis - Page 2 Cool

This gorgeous Dennis composition came up for discussion at Hoffman recently. I remember Craig Slowinski (c-man) being involved in a discussion at PSF about the strange "trumpet" flourish that ends up in the stratosphere. Was the tape speeded up? Was it a synth? Regrettably the discussion went the way of the rest of PSF when that forum vanished without trace. 


I was drinking San Miguel beer in Spain in 2015 when a ring tone went off at a nearby table. I nearly fell off my chair--it was the first two sung lines of "Wouldn't It Be Nice?" A Few Thoughts on Dennis - Page 2 Ohmy

It's a good feeling when things like that happen. At work, and in the retail section at the front of the castle, we have music playing in the shop. One of the staff members brought in the "Late Night Moods" compilation ---> Link

It was on repeat for a time and to my shock "In My Room" was one of the tracks which came on!

Yes, most tempted by that release! I got Bambu on RSD the other year.

This version with Roger Taylor and Brian May has just been released. Like it! Drums feel deeper, more bass, nice classic Queen(esq) solos and cool backing vocals under Taylor Hawkins.
