SEA OF LOVE – THE HONEYDIPPERS

SEA OF LOVE” IS A SONG WRITTEN BY JOHN PHILLIP BAPTISTE (AKA PHIL PHILLIPS) AND GEORGE KHOURY.

PHILLIPS’ 1959 RECORDING OF THE SONG PEAKED AT #1 in the USA.

IN THE UK, MARTY WILDE COVERED THE SONG, BUT PHILLIPS’ VERSION FAILED TO CHART.

IT WAS THE ONLY TOP 40 CHART SONG FOR PHILLIPS, WHO NEVER RECORDED ANOTHER HIT.

THE VERSION PLAYED TODAY IS BY THE HONEYDRIPPERS WHO WERE A ROCK BAND OF THE 1980S.

FORMER LED ZEPPELIN LEAD SINGER ROBERT PLANT FORMED THE GROUP IN 1981 TO SATISFY HIS LONG-TIME GOAL IN HAVING A ROCK BAND WITH A HEAVY R&B BASIS. FORMED ORIGINALLY IN WORCESTERSHIRE,

THE BAND WENT ON TO RECORD AN EP IN THE US. IN ADDITION TO PLANT, THE BAND WAS COMPOSED OF FELLOW FORMER LED ZEPPELIN MEMBER GUITARIST JIMMY PAGE, JEFF BECK (A FORMER YARDBIRDS MEMBER LIKE PAGE) AND OTHER FRIENDS AND WELL-KNOWN STUDIO MUSICIANS.
