Often remembered for their foot stomping classic 60s hit ‘Have I The Right’ and the presence of Honey Lantree as their drummer. There was more, and this is a long overdue complete collection of one of producer Joe Meek’s most successful artists.

• Presented in a clam shell box with an extensive biography from major collector and contributor to The Joe Meek Society magazine Thunderbolt, Paul Moy, a fan of the group since buying their first single in 1964, plus rare images from Paul’s collection.

• The set includes both studio LPs The Honeycombs (1964) and All Systems Go (1965), presented here in their original mono versions, comprising Disc 1 and 2.

• Also on these discs are the non LP b-sides, the rare US only single version of ‘I Can’t Stop’, and the German language version of the major hit as ‘Hab Icht Des Recht’. Together with the unreleased alt.version of the backing track to the hit complete with Joe Meek count in.

• The Honeycombs made a strong impression in Japan at the time and the box set includes their third LP In Tokyo (1966), a live recording. Also the Japan only singles recorded at Nippon Columbia Studios.

• To complete the 60s recordings round-up we have two tracks recorded not long before Meek’s death in 1967, ‘Tell Me Baby’ and ‘I Can Tell (Something’s Up)’ which remained unreleased at the time. Then following their time in the group the solo singles by guitarist Martin Murray and lead singer Denny D’ell.

• An important addition to any Joe Meek collectors archive, as well as 60s pop fans in general.
