Kerryl Rae has been in touch to say how much she has appreciated everyone's
thoughts and comments on the launch and release of Peter's CD:
very emotional for me to go through the website and feel the excitment
as we celebrate the launch, and to see just how much he was loved
and respected as I read through the messages and well wishes from
all over the world.”
those of us who can only wish we were there!
I deeply regret
that I can't be there with you all on the night, I could probably
fill a whole website trying to express my feelings about the launch,
Peter and the new CD and still not find nearly the right words! I
know tonight is the culmination of a lot of hard work borne of love
for a very special person and all those involved have my deepest appreciation.
So between a celebration of Peter's life and the Premiers final
concert, you have a great night ahead - enjoy it and know there are
a lot of us around the world who will be there with you, if only in
spirit! - Gwyneth Taylor (Wales, UK)
I received the news of a new CD by Peter Doyle with great excitement.
I didn’t know anything more, nor did I need too, the mere fact
that there was to be one was enough. Imagine, therefore, my amazement
at discovering that it was to be something even more special –
a collection of previously unreleased material! Peter’s music
has always been an important part of my life and I envy all those
who ever had a chance to meet him. This CD will, I feel sure, serve
as a reminder, should one be needed, of Peter’s amazing talent.
Those who have worked tirelessly to bring to fruition what can only
be described as a labour of love have my undying gratitude and I wish
everyone concerned with the launch every success. I only wish I could
be there to share your evening, though I feel sure Peter will be looking
down, feeling so proud that you have ensured he will never be forgotten.

Peter Doyle I guess you could say was one of my very first crushes
as a little girl, there was this gorgeous little blond boy on “Swallows
Juniors”. Well time goes by and we all get older, it was
nice to watch Peter go through his music career and see the many changes
in that career, which showed what a mega talent he was, it is so wonderful
to see that his memory is being celebrated with this CD and his music
will go on. - Bonnie (Melbourne, Australia)
I would love to be with
you all on May 29th but sadly this can't be - but I am so looking
forward to playing my copy of the Peter Doyle CD. Thank you to all
Peter's family and friends who made this CD possible - I know that
all Peter fans here are thrilled.
Peter Doyle forgotten- NEVER - not if I have anything to do with it.
He will always remain the greatest musical talent (and my first love!).
Have a wonderful evening.

I would like to thank you so much for all the beautiful things you
have given me. I don't know which or who I fell in love with first,
you or your music. I guess it's not surprising that my husband Peter
and you have a lot in common. We met in a band, he was the singer/guitarist
that reminded me of you but he turned out to be the very kind and
gentle man that I think you also were. He's the love of my life like
Jane was for you. I'm still in a band now enjoying singing and fine
guitarplaying (by our guitarist) as much as you did. You have given
us so many beautiful songs with beautiful guitarparts, thank you so
much for that, for everything. I'm so looking forward to all the new
songs on your new CD and would like to thank Jane, your family and
friends for making this possible for us. You're not with us anymore
but forever in my heart.
With love and respect, Romy Jeltema-Janssen (Roos) (The Netherlands)
I would like to add my very best wishes for a super launch night.
Peter has played a part in my life now for more than 32 years. I first
heard his wonderful voice in 1972 and I haven't recovered yet. Peter
is responsible for so many beautiful songs and I still think he was
one of the most talented vocalists ever. It's such a shame we never
got to hear more — until now - I can hardly wait to hear the
new CD!! It's been a long time since 1977 and the release of Skin
Deep - why so long??!! Many, many thanks from the bottom of my heart
to all the people involved in putting the new CD together. Have a
great night and lots of love to the memory of Peter. -
Paula Spooner (England, UK)
Many thanks to all concerned in actually getting us starved Peter
Doyle fans some “new” material to listen to. I personally
have been a fan of Peter's for more years than I care to mention,
and I can't wait to hear the tracks on “Rarities”. Here's
hoping it isn't the last of the releases of Peter's so far unheard
I hope all goes well at the launch next Saturday and that you raise
lots of money for charity. Have a great evening and thank you again
from a fan of a truly talented, but underestimated man, whom we all
miss. - Susan Shanley (East Lothian, Scotland)
Have a very special evening.
I'm looking forward to hearing the Rarities CD. Peter's voice was
unique and very special. - Bob Holt (Birmingham UK)
I'm so looking forward to hearing some “new” material
from Peter. I hope the launch goes well and lots of money is raised
from the sale of the CD.
You'll certainly NEVER be forgotton Peter. How could anyone ever forget
Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved. - Sue Smith (England,
Agnetha Rosen from Sweden would like to add her
best wishes to the above.
