Product Description

(2008/Rev-Ola) 23 tracks
In recent years Honeybus have outgrown the one hit wonder tag that plagued them for years and become one of the most treasured British bands of the late 60s. Sure, I Can't Let Maggie Go represents a high watermark of intelligent pop records reaching the top ten but there'sso much else besides. The band cut three singles in 1967 and 68, written and fronted by Pete Dello who promptly quit after Maggie hit and embarked on a fascinating and complex solo career. Not to be outdone, the band re-grouped and cut three further singles and an album that almost never got released. The story goes that upon their split in early 1970, somebody at their label, Deram Records, heard the recordings and demanded that it be released. And hence it was, posthumously and to little fanfare in 1970. Blending the kind of pure, crystalline folk-tinged baroque pop that had characterised most of their singles with flashes of psychedelia, country and bubblegum, the twelve songs that make up Story are uniformly stunning creations, played with skill and confidence, arranged for strings and woodwind and blessed with a sympathetic, understated production. We've added all eleven non-album Deram single sides, restored the original album artwork and told the Honeybus story with input from the band themselves.Medium 1

5.0 out of 5 stars A lost classic 20 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
'I Can't Let Maggie Go' is the single everyone will know, but Brian Matthew played 'Do I Still Figure In Your Life' on his Sounds of the Sixties on Saturday morning and I suddenly realised there was a whole new dimension to Honeybus. Not just one-hit wonders. There are some brilliant songs in here, mixed in with some odd lyrics too. But at least now we know where Bowie ripped off the opening to 'Jean Genie' from. 'Girl of Independent Means' is the opening to Jean Genie, only Honeybus got there and had split up two years before the 'inspiration' hit Bowie in New York.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album! 18 July 2013
By Tyler Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Honeybus was brought to my attention when I was 17 in 2009. I was getting into old bubblegum pop sounds and heard "I Can't Let Maggie Go". I fell in love with the song and the band. I later realized that they were more than bubblegum pop, commercial song writers, but something more. Every song on this CD from the original album and the 11 Bonus tracks of their Deram singles is a gem and I am surprised this album failed to produce high chart numbers in 1970 when released.

The folks at Revo-Ola did a good job in making these songs sound good while keeping the original feeling from the analog tapes. I don't know if they got to use the original masters, yet no matter...the songs sound great. The CD is in a plastic jewel case and it comes with a booklet of some insightful information on the band, album and their music. I'm very happy with my purchase and I recommend this to anyone who enjoys good 60's pop tunes.
