Dennis Linde

Dennis Linde wrote Elvis’ “Burning Love” and that Dixie Chicks tune “Goodbye Earl.” There were many others in between, but those are the two we all know and love. Sort of. I secretly think the Dixie Chicks are great, but that’s for another time.

Back in 1970, Linde made his first solo album and he called it Linde Manor. I’ve posted some songs from the album before and man oh man is it a fine one.

“Burning Love” on the back of a horse:

    this is great stuff. thanks for posting. any chance of more? i’ve scoured the internets and can’t find this album anywhere…

    (p.s. it’s strange to me that you’re from barrington. i’m from the south burbs. always pictured you being from somewhere more exotic than barrington. although, to us in the south burbs, barrington did always seem like another planet…)
