Willie and the Bumblebees - Honey from the Bee


I'm back like cooked crack with some private press rock funk in tow. Hailing from Minnesota ,Willie and the Bumblebees recorded in a real mixed bag of styles on this their first LP. To Quote the sleeve" The Bumblebee's roots are on the midnight-flash side of the street, and their music is their celebration of their survival. If you had to list influences, you could list gospel , jazz, reggae, ballads and blues.... but, like all good chefs, they know just how to mix their spices"

Definitely a great record. But none of the track numbers are noted. Anybody got a track order for this, so I can feed my OCD MP3-keeping habbits?

All hail the infamous Brooklyn Record Riot!

Each show is jam-packed with hip boys and girls and the legend continues to grow. Don't miss the fifth edition of the Brooklyn Record Riot, held this Sunday, September 27th at the Warsaw in Greenpoint. Over 35 well-traveled record dealers will convene over free-flowing Polish beer and kielbasa along with rare and common albums of all stripes, 45s galore, CDs and DVDs as well. And don't forget about the infamous dollar room! Phast Phreddie leads eight fab DJs as they spin endless music. Admission is $3.00 from noon until 8:00 pm. Early admission at 10:00 am will set you back $20.00 but you will live with the most serious of the crate-diggers. Download that, sucka! Warsaw, 261 Driggs Ave. Greenpoint, Brooklyn. More info on recordriots.com. Subway: L to Bedford or Lorimer, G to Metropolitan or Nassau. See you there!

I don't know whether this'll be read by anyone, but: THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Soul and reggae music done by what looks like (mostly) hippies and done on what sounds like a hippy budget. Fantastic!

I don't want to write a long-winded comment, so I'll just say my life is better for this album!
