SoulTracks Looks Back: Delegation sweetened with "Oh Honey"

Generally viewed in the US as a "one hit wonder," Delegation actually had a relatively long group career and a fair amount of international success, particularly in Europe.

Delegation was formed in the UK in the mid 70s by Ricky Balley, Len Coley and Roddy Harris. Working with producer/writer Ken Gold, they began releasing a series of modestly successful UK singles such as "The Promise of Love" and "Where Is The Love." But their fortunes changed for the better in 1979 with the release of "Oh Honey," a fantastic mid-tempo cut that hit the top ten in several countries. Click here for the full biography

 Today we take a look back at that brilliant hit as this week's subject of SoulTracks Looks Back.
