Dennis Diken with Bell Sound
Dan does a bit of playing and singing on his good friend's fine debut solo album.
Following are two brief excerpts from
THE GARY PIG GOLD REPORT, Vol. 18 - "Better Late Than Never":

"The 1960s-flavored pop and rock songs on the album, which is credited to Dennis Diken With Bell Sound, were "hatched," Diken says, along with longtime friend Pete DiBella. Along the way, they had help from Dave Amels, Andy Paley, The Honeys and members of The Wondermints, with recording done in New Jersey and California.

Diken says, "Another guy who added a lot to the proceedings is Dan Markell, a somewhat unsung talent. In addition to his fine bass, guitar and keyboard work, he let me crash at his apartment in North Hollywood, like, constantly!"
