4.0 out of 5 stars Good Music, 12 May 2005
This review is from: She Flies Like A Bird: The Anthology (Audio CD)
While i wouldn't never claim Honeybus were the greatest band in music history, you can't go wrong with songs like "Delighted to see you", "I Can't Let Maggie Go", "Big Ship", "How Long", "She Sold Blackpool Rock", "Story", etc, etc.
It was courtsesy of their Third single in 1968 , "I Can't Let Maggie Go", that this band saw stardom. However, the lead singer & main songwriter, Pete Delo, quit the group while it was high in the charts. The group never had another single chart in the UK top 30, but "She sold Blackpool Rock" was a minor hit in 1969*.
The group finally called it a day in 1973. This album conatins almost everything they recorded.
The interview with Pete Dello (included here) is very interesting, as are the liner notes which contain a biography on the band's career, photos and some press articles.
(*Note: There was more than one company issuing charts in the UK during the 1960s, while "She Sold Blackpool Rock" was a hit in some of the charts, it wasn't in the one they now use to complile most chart books, hence it won't appear in them).
I give this album 4 stars out of Five.
