Lesley Duncan (married name Lesley Cox; 12 August 1943 – 12 March 2010) was an English singer-songwriter, best known for her work during the 1970s  . Considered one of Britain's first female singer-songwriters, her songs included "Everything Changes" and "Sing Children Sing", and the song for which she is best known, "Love Song". Elton John recorded a duet with Duncan of the song, similar to her solo version, for his album Tumbleweed Connection. She appeared onstage with John in a 1974 concert at the Royal Festival Hall to perform the duet once again, and the live recording of "Love Song" was included on John's Here and There album.

Sing Children Sing" is Lesley Duncan's first album and, in my opinion, her best together with Everything Changes (how long until this will be reprinted on CD?) I got to know Lesley because she took part in the backing vocals on Elton's early records; her angelic and warm voice can also be heard on the last track of side A of "The Dark Side of the Moon". With Sing Children Sing Lesley is more than just a vocalist; this album reveals a mature solo singer songwriter.

Duncan wasn't as folky or reserved as Saint John, but this is pretty laid-back, and too pensively even-tempered and melodically bland to make a deep impression. The sound is certainly pleasant and professional, due in large part to the presence of some big names in the session band, including guitarist Chris Spedding, Pentangle drummer Terry Cox, and most of all Elton John himself on piano.
