06 December: Honey and the Bees: Jing Jing A Ling

Published December 06, 2019

I don't know much about this soul-inflected recording, nor about the performers, Honey and the Bees. The writers and producers all seem to be based in Philadelphia, so maybe the group was too. Some of the members went on to join The Ritchie Family ('The Best Disco In Town').

This 'Jing Jing A Ling' single was released in 1969, apparently to little fanfare, but nothing is too obscure to be dug up by this Advent Calendar. Especially when it's this great.

Listen here.

Honey and the Bees perform today's Advent Calendar song, 'Jing Jing A Ling'.
