Ned Doheny Streathma Island Discs

Ned’s an interesting character, from a wealthy family, part of the David Geffen set in the early 70s. That’s him on the far right in the photo, next to Geffen and Joni Mitchell and (I think) Mama Cass. He then went on to make the classic Yacht Rock LP ‘Hardy Candy’ in 1976.

In 1979 he released ‘Prone’, and ‘To Prove My Love’ from that LP went on to become a soul weekender classic. It was all over pirate radio in the early 80s.

But for reasons lost in the mists of time, the version everyone knows only has vocals on the choruses – the lead vocal line is missing.This is the version with the full vocal, only released in Japan. Good song, great voice.
