Delegation's easy-flowing, pop-soul sounds only scored once with any wallop in the States, a #5 R&B charting for "Oh Honey," an endearing ballad that ranks as their best. The lead singer reminds you of a young Levi Stubbs trying to overcome a cold. Stubbs would have set these songs on fire, Delegation just nukes 'em on medium power for a few minutes. A more demanding producer and these would have been across-the-board hits, still their soul-lite style pleased many, tracks to check: "Mr. Heartbeat," "Back Door Love," "Where Is The Love We Used To Know," "Soul Trippin'" and of course - "Oh Honey."While little known in the States, Delegation was da bomb in England. ~ Andrew Hamilton
