Stepfather of Soul Piggybackin'
Honey & The Bees - Love Addict
Today your ever-lovin' Stepfather of Soul has picked a tune featuring an artist that has recently been profiled elsewhere, so I'll be diplomatic and say I'm syndicating blogs, but others may say I'm just being lazy! At any rate, Honey & The Bees have been recently featured at Oliver Wang's excellent Soul Sides blog and I refer you to that post for info about this awesome femme soul group. "Love Addict" is a storming piece of Philly soul with a groove that grabs you right out the gate. I've really been jamming on this one lately! I've got to have it - it's become a habit!
PS: While you're over at Soul Sides check out the feature Oliver did about The Icemen's "My Girl, She's a Fox", from which both John Legend and Amy Winehouse appropriated portions for "Slow Dance" and "He Can Only Hold Her," respectively. I enjoy both the Legend and Winehouse recordings, and was thrilled to hear the source of the great groove. Great work as always, O-Dub!
