Step into Denny’s Den to give yourself a little lift as you make your way through the busy day. Or take a break and make the world go away for a while. Dig on platters a-plenty, from The Chantels to Del Shannon, The Small Faces to Jimmy Reed. And so much more. Maybe some Basie and Kenton? Relax. You’ve earned it!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Gaylord Fields:

Everything about "Tossin' and Turnin'" is fantastic! This song cooks with all the gas jets on high!
  2:17pm Jim G:

I had the Tossin' and Turnin' single. Backed with something about the Circus, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Gaylord Fields:

I appreciate that we got a sneak preview of each song thanks to the glitch. It's like the teaser on a TV show before the opening credits.
Avatar 2:18pm Dennis Diken:

@Gaylord - to be sure, to be sure! there are two versions, this is the hit mix with overdubbed drums! @Jim G, couldn't say, I don't have it in front me!
Avatar 2:21pm Matt Clarke:

Hey Denny and fellow Denizens! Happy Birthday week to Mick!
  2:22pm Jim G:

Actually, I think the single I had of Tossin' & Turnin' had "One Track Mine" on the B-side. It wasn't an original 45. It was a reissue.
Avatar 2:23pm Dennis Diken:

@ Matt Clarke - yes sir! Mick is our mainest of men!
  2:23pm gene sculatti:

'Let It Roll': so underrated

Carole King finally enrolled in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year! What took so long?
Avatar 3:25pm Dennis Diken:

@Jim G - were Goffin & King already in there as songwriters?
Avatar 3:25pm Hackensack Slim:

More Lennon impersonations, please.
Avatar 3:26pm Dennis Diken:

@Hackensack Slim - it can be arranged!
  3:27pm Jim G:

I just checked. You are correct sir. Goffin & King inducted 1990. So this is Carole on her own.

@Todd - I've got a Helton part 2 article ready for the next ish!
Avatar 3:43pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Dennis Diken: I have certainly seen a lot of appearances I was not aware of when your article was published so perhaps we are at least due for an addendum.
Avatar 3:44pm Dennis Diken:

@Todd - "so if you want this key....pay..."
Avatar 3:48pm Reechie:

No kidding? Wow. Murray The K!
Avatar 3:49pm Dave the Spazz:

I'm still waiting for Breakthrough to be digitized, as I did sign up for an online subscription 35 years ago.
