Released in March 1968, and included here, "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. And still Honeybus remain a unique group in so many ways. Their legacy has become
cherished more and more, its quiet majesty singling them out from the few contemporaries they had. While plaudits for the group’s sole Deram album, 1970’s exemplary Story continue to roll in as fresh generations of pop connoisseurs discover its charms, and the group’s subsequent ill-starred excursions into the studio in the early ’70s (the long lost Recital album and the rarities companion volume For Where Have You Been: The Lost Tracks, released by Hanky Panky /Mapache in 2018) simply add further depth and kudos to their already Godlike status, their run of half a dozen 45s has been side-lined somewhat. Now for the first time ever the 12 sides released on Deram by the Mk I and Mk II line-ups of the group between 1967 and 1970 have been sourced from the master tapes, assembled in chronological order and presented in album fashion.

Publicado en marzo de 1968, e incluido aquí, "I Can't Let Maggie Go" fue el tercer sencillo de Honeybus y el que les aseguraría su lugar en los libros de historia. El single alcanzó el puesto número 8 en las listas del Reino Unido y se convirtió en un gran éxito mundial. Y aún así Honeybus sigue siendo, por muchas razones, un grupo único: su legado es apreciado cada vez más y su tranquila majestad les distingue claramente de sus contemporáneos. Mientas que las nuevas generaciones que descubren sus encantos elogian el único disco que publicaron para Deram en 1970, y las malogradas grabaciones en estudio de primeros de los años 70 (el álbum perdido Recital y la colección de rarezas For Where Have You Been: The Lost Tracks, editadas por Hanky Panky /Mapache en 2018) añaden mayor peso y prestigio a su ya de por si elevado status, su media docena de sencillos ha quedado un poco olvidada. Ahora, por primera vez, las doce canciones editadas en single por Deram y grabadas por las dos primeras formaciones del grupo entre 1967 y 1970 son recuperadas en orden cronológico y presentadas en formato LP.
