Richard Williams (music journalist) : She was probably the first woman to write about pop music as though it really mattered.

Chris Welch (music journalist) : Penny Valentine was part of a social whirl of receptions, parties and night-clubbing that made Swinging London such fun...The Beatles and Rolling Stones certainly preferred to be interviewed by the vivacious young lady from Disc magazine than by some spotty chap in a raincoat.
