The 1970s nostalgia that was inescapable in the 1990s certainly had a ridiculous side (did bell bottoms really need to make a comeback?), but at the same time, it was nice to see a lot of post-Baby Boomers enjoying the great soul music that came out of that decade. An unapologetic throwback to 1970s soul, this EP isn't innovative or groundbreaking, but it is appealing

Overview

The 1970s nostalgia that was inescapable in the 1990s certainly had a ridiculous side (did bell bottoms really need to make a comeback?), but at the same time, it was nice to see a lot of post-Baby Boomers enjoying the great soul music that came out of that decade. An unapologetic throwback to 1970s soul, this EP isn't innovative or groundbreaking, but it is appealing and heartfelt. Urban contemporary considerations don't even enter the picture on this CD, which came out in 1998 but sounded like it could have been recorded in 1974. Retro was exactly what SuperHoney was going for, and the Boston band does it well. SuperHoney has a major asset in singer Joan Pimental-Flynn, a big-voiced belter who brings a lot of passion and grit to the jazzy "Lightheaded," the melancholy "Wait For You" and the driving "Super Duper." Most of the songs are pure soul, although SuperHoney brings a strong rock edge to "Taste My Wine." This very promising EP (which SuperHoney produced with Scott Riebling of the alternative rock band Letters to Cleo) made listeners anxious to hear what the Bostonians would do on their first full-length album.
