Biography

The UK artist Daniel Boone was born Peter Green in Birmingham, England in 1942. Green emerged into the buoyant post-war music scene during the late 1950s with a band called The Beachcombers who later morphed into The Bruisers when they joined singer Tommy Bruce as his backing band. Green wrote a number of the band's singles and honed his stagecraft before joining Rumpelstiltskin who had originally started out life as a studio band.

After recording two albums with Rumpelstiltskin, Green eventually reinvented himself as Daniel Boone and signed to producer Larry Page's Penny Farthing label. His debut single for the label was 'Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast' and it brought Green his first and only top twenty hit in the UK when it reached number 17 in 1971. His follow -up single 'Mamma' failed to make any impact on the UK charts but his next single 'Beautiful Sunday' released in March 1972 became the song which defined Green's career. Although 'Beautiful Sunday' only reached number 21 in the UK charts it peaked at 15 on Billboard's US chart and was a hit in Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, France, Italy, Scandinavia, the Netherlands and Germany, where it topped the charts for five weeks, with cumulative sales of over two million copies.
