On a winter’s day: RIP Denny Doherty
Who brought to the world hauntingly beautiful harmonies (an iconic sound of their decade) and a sense of humour as his stories on his site show

Of course this music wasn’t really a hippy thing, more a glossy studio version of it (with loads of reverb?) from people who weren’t really kids any more, a very commercial operation, but marvellous pop all the same. You can read into it a bittersweet echo of the, yes, youthful idealism of the ‘other’ ’60s, the ‘square’ ’60s.
