Lesley Duncan

Lesley Duncan is a British singer / songwriter. She was mainly a singles artist with recordings dating back to 1963. After a string of unsuccessful singles from "I Want A Steady" in 1963 recorded as "Lesley Duncan and The Jokers" to "Sing Children Sing" in 1969 Lesley Duncan finally got noticed when Elton John recorded her song "Love Song" on his "Tumbleweed Connection" album. Up until this time she was more successful in the session field. Doing backing vocal for a number of British artist including Elton John. She can be heard in the chorus on the "Jesus Christ Superstar" album.
After Elton John recorded "Love Song" this landed Lesley Duncan a recording contract with CBS / Columbia Records. Her first album "Sing Children Sing" included Elton John on Piano. In 1972 her second album "Earth Mother" was released. Unlike the first this was not available in the US. Due to the unsuccessful singles from the first album US Columbia decided to issue "Earth Mother" as an import only. She also sang on Joyce Everson's album Crazy Lady" which was recorded in 1971 and released by Warner in 1972. It wasn't until 1974 that the single To Be A Pilgrim was issued from the album in England.  This ended her time with Columbia and her next album was issued by the GM label in England.
Her next album "Everything Changes" is the album that got me hooked. I bought this for a friend who had picked up a copy on his own and leaving me stuck with the copy I bought for him. Well after playing it I thanked him because the album blew me away. This album never got issued in the US and it's our loss. Highlighting the album are the tracks "My Soul" , "The Serf", "Love Melts Away" and the title track "Everything Changes". This lead to her signing with MCA records in the US in 1976. MCA released her next two albums "Moonbathing", which again included the help of Elton John, and "Maybe It's Lost". After low sales of these albums Lesley Duncan was back to a singles artist releasing singles up until 1986. The last album Lesley Duncan appeared on was the 1979 release by Alan Parsons Project called "Eve" where she sang the track "If I Could Change Your Mind".
