Danny's Passion - from Cornwall


Way back in the mid 1960s when pop music was  revolutionising the world of music, one of the top Cornish bands was Falmouth based Danny's Passion.

This 5 piece outfit had a huge local following, and in 1966, they signed a recording contract with the Legendary producer Joe Meek, creator of “Telstar”, travelling to his studio in Holloway Road, London, they recorded a track called “(It’s all leading up to) Saturday Night”  which was intended to be their first single, further sessions followed, but unfortunately, with Joe’s death on February 3rd 1967, these tracks,(except for one) along with hundreds of other gems, are still hidden away, somewhere in London.

Such was the interest in the group at the time, that they appeared on the front page of the Falmouth Packet (see attached report), now 40 years on, and not having seen each other for all these years, this Saturday 29th July, Four of the original line-up are coming together for a reunion meal at The Green Lawns Hotel, in Falmouth, and for one, it means a journey from New Zealand, where he now lives.
