Comments: I have to admit even though I fondly remember all of James`s songs growing up in Paris Ontario, I did not know his history. I rem Major Hooples boarding house and denim and always thought he had a great voice but had no idea it was all James.
so sorry to hear about his passing even though it was so long ago.....very nice tribute to an often over looked legend ,thank you for the site

Comments: Thanks for creating this site. One of my favourite songs from the 70's. Thanks for creating this site out of tribute to James. I often wondered what happened to him. So sad that he died so very young.

Comments: I was fortunate enough to hear James Leroy at a night club called "Tall Boys" in Corner Brook, Newfoundland around 1976 or so. I spoke briefly with him and he seemed to be a kind person. Thank you Paul Weber for this site, where people like me can visit Mr Leroy and hear his voice and music after all these years. It brought back my youth and some cherished memories. "You Look Good In Denim" took me back to my last year of high school - a good place. Thank God for James Leroy and his talent during our lifetime. Too bad he had to leave us so soon.

Comments: This is a follow-up to the guestbook signing by my old chum, Wayne Dunham. Wow, the mid seventies! I remember very well attending a concert at Fredericton's Playhouse with my girlfriend Daphne (I should have married her). The evening was a touch of magic. JL and Denim was the opening act, but clearly was the more popular band on that night. We went to see the Stampeders, but left wanting to buy JL's album, which I did. I spent many hours listening to the tunes with Wayne, and I can honestly say that it shaped what we did as band mates at that time and clearly influenced my musical direction in subsequent bands both in Fredericton and Alberta. This is a terrifc sites, and the music brought back a flood of memories. It was a great look back at my seventies' life.

Comments: Thank you so much for the site ... JL was something of an enigma to me. My best friend and bandmate, Nigel Butterfield owned the Denim album and we listened to it over and over again. James and Major Hoople played our Frosh Week at UNB way back in Sept'75 (Fredericton NB). Now that night was magical and remains near-and-dear in my mind. He drew on many musical themes - bit of Procol Harum, plenty of country rock rhythms and a healthy dose of the best in Canadian pop. It boogles the mind speculating where this artist might have taken Canadian music in that silver age of Canadian Rock. Nigel and I both thank you for the welcome "memory refresh" your site guarantees. Cheers, Wayne Dunham
