Two Minute Wonders

Got quite into trawling up smashing short songs I have, so here's a few more in varying styles.

Starting with 'The Honey's', a 60's girl-group, consisting of Marilyn & Diane Rovell (sisters) and their cousin Ginger Blake. They were produced by Brian Wilson, who as well as writing for them, dated & married Marilyn. The Honeys provided backing vocals on some Beachboys tracks, doing the same for Jan and Dean on three popular singles.

There's not much by them available to buy these days, the following is from Pet Projects; a collection of Wilson-produced artists; it also appears on The Honeys Collection. Ahh but I found a decent discography.

The One You Can't Have - The Honeys
writing credits to Brian Wilson from some sources

Sticking with female voices,this is lovely - so lush & complex; hardly the two minute pop-song. More about Judee here.

The Pearl - Judee Sill
Heart Food (1973)

I really rate these guys - check out their album 'The Places We Lived', very different to this.
Ice Cream Truck - Backyard Tire Fire
Sick of Debt (2008)

Not much to say about this - just set your stereo to stun, & play it over & over - a marvel.
Love Comes in Spurts - Richard Hell & the Voidoids
Blank Generation (1977)
