Roy Daniel began his singing career way back in 1958 when he and Dave Luther
were at Farnborough Grammar School when they formed their first band called THE BLACKJACKS.
In 1958 they recorded two songs at a small studio in London's Denmark Street (Tin Pan Alley) called "I love Her" written by Dave and "Little Jennie" written by Roy. After changing their band's name to DANIEL BOONE & THE RENEGADES in 1962/63 they recorded four other tracks: "Country Girl" and "She", both written by Dave and Roy and "Forever And Ever I Do" b/w "I Miss You".
The first two tracks were pressed on a 78 rpm acetate, nos. 3 and 4 on an 45 rpm acetate. The lineup for the last two tracks was the first ever recording by a WISHFUL THINKING-lineup: Roy Daniel, Dave Luther, Brian Allen, Roger Charles & Richard Taylor!
