Documentary on Denny - Thanks to Pete Lindup

Many years ago Pete Lindup did a wonderful job of tracking down Denny in his retirement with a view to capturing some reminiscences on film of his wonderful career.


Pete has recently made these brief films available to us all via You Tube and he has graciously allowed us to link to them.


Thanks Pete

Excellent News! - New double CD to mark Denny’s Centenary


‘Retrospective’ Records have released a brand new double CD compilation of the very finest recordings by Denny Dennis, representing the whole of his career.  Produced to the very highest quality with all new and masterful restorations by restoration expert Alan Bunting, the CD is a fitting tribute to Denny to mark his centenary on November 1st 2013. 


All the hits and the favourites are included, plus many unreleased gems. The CD includes full discographical information, plus a 14 page booklet with lots of information about Denny and his career


The double CD is available from ‘Retrospective’ Records. The official release date was September 2013.


It’s a wonderful job from ‘Retrospective’ and I know that Denny would have been thrilled and very proud to have seen a CD of his recordings that represent the whole of his career.


Well done ‘Retrospective’ - and Thanks!


A two part article on Denny’s career is due to feature in ‘Memory Lane’ Magazine, in the winter and spring editions - See the British Dance Bands page to learn more about this wonderful magazine.


(IPlease note, the CD cannot be purchased via this site. Amazon is one place. You may also try Nimbus Records.

More information welcome - do let me know.              tributetodennydennis@fsmail.net  

And here is - the October edition of ‘Memory Lane’ magazine. Within is the first of a two part tribute to Denny to mark his centenary, by yours truly. 


I should also say that the CD is the result of my collaboration with ‘Retrospective’ Records. All but a few of the tracks are taken from my 78s and the 14 page liner notes are also by yours truly.  The discographical details are a joint effort with ‘Retrospective’.


It has been an interesting experience working with such a reputable company that is committed to producing CDs of nostalgia music, and also to promoting Denny Dennis through their commitment to this CD project.


The reward for my efforts, a few CDs for myself, and of course one for my Mum. I have no commercial interest in the CD, but would be delighted if it became a number one best seller. The real reward, a CD tribute to do Denny proud. I know he would be  delighted if he were here to see it.


The CD can be found on Amazon for about £7.52 - a bargain price if ever there was one.
