Baroque 'n' roll stars,
This review is from: She Flies Like A Bird: The Anthology (Audio CD)
Aficionados of British 60's pop should already be familiar with Honeybus' output. Between 1967 and 1970 they cut six singles and an album which nodded to The Beatles, The Hollies, The Lovin' Spoonful, The Byrds and The Moody Blues and topped them off with ornate string and woodwind arrangements.
They possessed no less than three hugely talented songwriters and when Pete Dello, the writer of their classic early singles, left the band at the height of their fame, they got back on their feet and carried on without him.
This wonderfully packaged and annotated anthology contains all those Deram cuts plus previously unreleased BBC sessions, a rare Italian single, early 70's single sides, a selection from the unreleased 1972 album Recital and some demos previously only available on a long out-of-print Dutch CD.
Now we can hope for similarly expanded editions of the Pete Dello & Friends and Colin Hare albums.
