A Denim Bridges' solo LP discography.

Who knows Denny Bridges was a sound engineer in Brian Eno's "Here come the warm jets"? Or in Jeff Beck's "Blow By Blow" produced by Sir George Martin?

Just after the involvement with the Third Ear Band, thanks to a tied friendship with Paul Buckmaster, Denny had the chance to work at the London Air Studios as a sound engineer.

He told to me: "I was closer to Paul Buckmaster than any of the other members. He was always a mentor to me. He was responsible for introducing me to most of the music that was to influence me within the scope of The Third Ear Band and he encouraged me greatly. We also got on very well on a personal level and occasionally saw each other outside of the band. Post TEB I had the opportunity to engineer sessions at Air Studios for him when, for example, he had arranged for the orchestra. I was always thrilled to work with him again in that different capacity."
