Over the last couple of years Ace have built up an impressive series of songwriter-based compilations focusing on the work of Burt Bacharach, Jackie DeShannon, Randy Newman and the Leiber & Stoller, Pomus & Shuman, Greenwich & Barry, Mann & Weil and Goffin & King teams.
"Honey & Wine" is Ace Records' second foray into the songbook of Gerry Goffin and Carole King, one of the most lauded songwriting partnerships of all-time. As with the earlier volume, the set includes familiar hits such as Maxine Brown's `Oh No Not My Baby', the Drifters' `Up On The Roof' and Gene McDaniels' `Point Of No Return', overlooked gems (Chuck Jackson's `I Need You', Jan & Dean's `The Best Friend I Ever Had' and `I Happen To Love You' by the Myddle Class, to name just three and new-to-CD rarities `Stage Door' by Peter James, `They're Jealous Of Me' by Connie Stevens and Carolyn Daye's `A Long Way To Be Happy'.
