Danny formed Pentangle. Their song Light Flight was the theme tune for the TV series Take Three Girls. One of those girls was played by Liza Goddard, who attended Farnham Girls Grammar School. So did my sister. See, we're practically related!

Wonderful, absolutely wonderful, more please


What a great start to Mary's series of intimate interviews! I always loved the bass runs / lines in Earth Song / Ocean Song — so helped ground the album's mood. Now we know the back story and have met a great musician in Mary's world. Thanks to dearest Mary, Danny, Jessica, et al, for this interview. Looking forward to more!
