Throwback: Delegation-Oh Honey

[youtube id=”BbMzoSVKp1Q”] British soul band Delegation was formed in 1975 with members Rickey Bailey, Roddy Harris and Len Coley. “Oh Honey” was their breakthrough single in 1977 after releasing a series of modestly successful singles. The song established their presence in the United States and gave them a one-hit wonder status despite further success in their native Great Britain. The band underwent personnel changes through the years and released five albums. “Oh Honey” reached classic R&B love song status long ago and continues to be heavily sampled by artists of all genres. Rickey Bailey introduced their newest single, “I Surrender” in 2013.
