In March 1968, "I Can't Let Maggie Go" became the third Honeybus single and the one which would ensure their place in the history books. The single hit number 8 in the UK and became a huge hit worldwide, but by summer 1969 the band had virtually called it a day. However, at Terry Noon's insistence (the band’s manager), the group completed an album's worth of new material. The album called Story was eventually released without much promotion in February 1970, by which time Honeybus was no more. Story remains a classic of the era, twelve shining gems blending Beatlesque pop ("She's Out There"), folk ("He Was Columbus"), country ("Ceilings No 1" and "Ceilings No 2", the same song played at different tempos), baroque pop ("She Said Yes") and gentle psychedelia ("Under The Silent Tree"), that showcase the songwriting talents of Ray Cane and Colin Hare. Produced by Ivor Raymonde.
