This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

Lesley Duncan (vocals)

The Jokers [1963] 
Dusty Springfield Band [1965-1966?]4 recordings
Lesley Duncan Band  15 recordings
Elton John Band [Feb 72]5 recordings + 3 compilations
Lesley Duncan Band (again)   


Wonderful vocalist and songwriter. She was born on August 12th, 1943 in Stockton-on-Tees, England.


The Jokers was a band around 1963, with young musicians that later became famous:

Lesley Duncan
John Carter
Ken Lewis
Les Reed
Viv Prince

They released a single credited to Leslie Duncan And The Jokers, ´I want a steady guy / Movin´ away´.

Other info on members of The Jokers (I know up to 5 members)
To be covered (2): Viv Prince, Les Reed
Not enough info (2): John Carter, Ken Lewis


She released several singles, without great success.


Lesley joined Dusty Springfield, probably around 1966, appearing in several of their albums, forming a magnificent vocal team with Madeline Bell and Kiki Dee or Maggie Stredder.

Sorry, I don´t have info about the lineup(s), so if someone can help, it would be very appreciated.

In 1966, Dusty Springfield was backed by this great vocal section for her concert NME Pollwinners in Wembley:

Dusty Springfield
Madeline Bell
backing vocals
Lesley Duncan
backing vocals
Kiki Dee
backing vocals
+ others unknown to me. Help!

I don´t know the musicians, but they probably were The Echoes. Help, please!

In 1970, when Elton John chose Lesley´s tune ´Love song´ for his album Tumbleweed Connection, where Lesley appears, she signed a solo contract. Although, much to our delight, she kept on appearing in many albums as backing vocalist.

Around that time, she married producer and keyboardist Jimmy Horowitz.


Lesley appeared in two more albums by Elton, as well as singing backup in one concert.

In February 1972, Elton John includes superb vocalists and a whole orchestra for his gigs:

Feb 72
Elton John
vocals, keyboards
Davey Johnstone
Alan Parker
Dee Murray
Nigel Olsson
Caroline Attard
backing vocals
Lesley Duncan
backing vocals
Madeline Bell
backing vocals
+ The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Paul Buckmaster

In 1974, she also appeared in Elton´s live album Here and there dueting with Elton in ´Love song´.

Other info on members of Elton John Band (I know up to 68 members)
Already covered (10): Caroline Attard, Madeline Bell, Doreen Chanter, Irene Chanter, Kay Garner, Stevie Lange, Jo Partridge, Roger Pope, Caleb Quaye, Tim Renwick
To be covered (57): Guy Babylon, Jeff ´Skunk´ Baxter, Bob Birch, Dave Bitelli, Alex Brown, Paul Buckmaster, Kim Bullard, Cindy Bullens, Alan Carvell, Joel Clempson, Dennis Conway, Ray Cooper, Raul D´Oliveira, Kiki Dee, Ian Duck, Dave Glover, Ken Gold, Stjepan Hauser, Natalie Jackson, Mortonette Jenkins, Marlena Jeter, Elton John, Davey Johnstone, John Jorgenson, David Katz,... up to 57 musicians.


Jimmy Horowitz´s relationship with Lesley Duncan was very close, as they were married at that time. Jimmy produced most of her albums, and he also assembled and played live bands to back her. This was the Lesley Duncan Band just for 1 gig in September 1972 at the Queen Elizabeth Hall:

Sep 72
Lesley Duncan
Chris Spedding
Andy Bown
Madeline Bell
backing vocals
David Katz
string conductor

Lesley wasn´t keen on performing live. Anyway, she appeared in the Reading Festival 1973 (with one song in the collective live album) and also toured in 1976.

She later married producer Tony Cox. Her last appearances were with him, and around 1980, she stopped doing sessions. A pity.

Other info on members of Lesley Duncan Band (I know up to 8 members)
Already covered (2): Madeline Bell, Jimmy Horowitz
To be covered (5): Andy Bown, Harvey Burns, David Katz, Glen LeFleur, Chris Spedding

But the tragedy arrived when I read about Lesley´s passing in 12th March, 2010, due to a cerebrovascular disease. Rest in peace.

    1. Hi Miguel, great site.
      Lesley Duncan featured in a 3 part TV musical series called " Sounds like....." circa 1974/5 and produced for BBC North East(Newcastle) by Brian Strachan. The other 2 shows showcased Hedgehog Pie and I think Pentangle. I have contacted BBC archives but they have no trace. It was a great show with Earth Mother playing to scenes of environmental damage etc. Do you have any knowledge of its existence?
