5.0 out of 5 stars One of the U.K.'s Greatest Vocalists !!!!!!!, 10 May 2006
Honeycombs lead singer DENNIS D'ELL, was, i believe, one of our most underated singers. during the sixties he possessed a truly amazing pop vocal, fitting in perfectly with the songs he recorded, written by ken howard and alan blaikley (not forgetting joe meek and ray davies)! particularly on the Band's first album "THE HONEYCOMBS". A much underated LP of superb songs of which i have never grown tired of hearing, since i bought the album in 1971, aged 13. some are represented on this CD, but, i would urge anyone to try and get a CD copy of the first LP, now since deleted, by both SEQUEL and REPERTOIRE lables. Denny D'ell was not widely known for his guitar ability, of which i saw first hand several times, including an "upclose and personal" gig he did, when he ran his own pub in essex. he matured into a marvellous blues singer, performing with the "SOUTHSIDE BLUES BAND". He would also deliver some fine SANTANA guitar licks, which displayed his versatility as a talented musician. dennis died last year (2005), of cancer, leaving behind not nearly enough recorded material worth his talent. listen to this and other cds , and you may see what i see !

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is not the 60s livepool combo of the same name, who had hit singles i.e. "everythings alright" and "why not tonight" in 1964, but a japanese r&b outfit performing some well known 60s classics e.g. (whiter shade of pale), along with a handful of there own numbers. i purchased it, and am pleased with the results ! anyone who loves 60s brit r&b such as yardbirds, the birds, pretty things etc, will enjoy this album, thumbs up !!.
