Honeybus were a 1960s pop organization formed in April 1967, in London.

Consequential was written mainly by the band«s prime in residence composers, Dello and Cane, although Hare and Kircher also contributed songs. The group»s supporters and critics, amongst them Kenny Everett, compared the band«s unimpaired to that of the Rubber Essence era of Beatles. Honeybus, however, never achieved the commercial celebrity of many other artists of their at the same time, only once in their story connecting with the mrs average for a biggest hit with 1968»s «I Can't Let Maggie Go», which was so in vogue that it earned the affiliate a act photo on the in vogue music munitions dump, «Disc and Music Echo», for which they posed atop a red London bus.

«I Can«t Let Maggie Go» reached Army 8 in the UK Singles Table, staying in the Top 40 for over two months, but any fortune of tomorrow«s celebrity was shattered when Dello resigned during the single»s table run. He had been willing to gamble exist on transmit and goggle-box appearances or a strange concert showcase, but abhorred the exist appear and the mental image of touring America, which he had done earlier in the 1960s. Badly Off of their key songwriter and trouper, the affiliate drafted in Jim Kelly to interchange Dello on guitar and vocals, whilst Cane, whose talents and instincts were a musty contest for Dello»s, took over most of the songwriting and a thickset ration of the prima ballerina vocals.

This lineup scored a insignificant celebrity with «She Sold Blackpool Rock» and a bolster-up distinct to «Maggie», «Girl Of Beyond Means», but the organization never really recovered. Kircher was next to say goodbye the affiliate, in the summer of 1969, and went on junket with Engelbert Humperdinck. He was replaced by drummer Lloyd Courtney for the rest of the sessions for their come out album, but Honeybus in the final analysis disbanded up to the minute in 1969. Their music is arguably best evaluated by listening to the posthumous 1970 album Curriculum Vitae, which, without an physical affiliate to present it, sank without a trace.

Dello, Hare and Kelly all went on to report critically-acclaimed consequential in the break of dawn 1970s, which failed to succeed in any momentous commercial celebrity, however the leading players Dello, Hare, Kelly and Kircher all worked extensively on each other«s consequential, causing, in upshot, a Honeybus reunion in all but name. The Dello plumb b in agreement-up of the affiliate reunited in 1971 to report a new society of songs for the Bell Records portray and a performed LP, «Recital», for British Warner Bros. Records. A interchange in directorate at Warner Brothers meant that Interpretation was never issued commercially, although some promotional copies were issued to music effort insiders and are now importantly collectable. The hit ditty «I Can»t Let Maggie Go« enjoyed an unexpected reprise in celebrity in the 1970s when it was used as the soundtrack for a goggle-box ballyhoo for »Nimble» slimmer's bread.

Since their heyday, Honeybus have inaugurate themselves pigeonholed as one-hit wonders. Ex-colleague Pete Dello stated in an question for Dutch TV's «Single Luck» (NPS for Nederland 2, 2003) that he believes this tag does not absolutely put the well-heeled legacy of consequential communistic behind by the affiliate, and that sure having one hit was better than none at all. From Wikipedia, the loose encyclopedia

«Honeybus at their best» is 25-ditty compilation containing The Honeybus Curriculum Vitae as well as all of the singles, including «I Can»t Let Maggie Go,« and lots of rare takes. Strangely enough, »Maggie« doesn»t present a postpone up as that fair a ditty next to some of the keep on being, and many of Ray Cane«s numbers actually come off as more historic than many of Dello»s songs. The group«s 1969 recordings, featuring Kelly»s guitar in lieu of an surplus of overdubbed instruments, are in general the strongest society of exertion here. Hare«s »Would You Believe,« a sticks-fashion army (making him the group»s «Ringo Starr») also comes off as a like a breath of fresh air interchange of rate of speed. Some of the songs suffer from a grade of sameness, but most of the music contains enough surprises to prevail upon it exciting. By Bruce Eder, All Music Sway
