Musical Interlude: Have I The Right (1964)

For all intents & purposes, the Honeycombs were a 1-hit wonder in the midst of the British Invasion of the 60's. However, the unique sound of their #1 hit, "Have I The Right", made them stand out.

Hairstylist Martin Murray and his assistant, Honey Lantree, helped start the band, along with Lantree's brother and 2 friends. However, not long after "Right" had reached the top of the charts, Murray left the band. Honey Lantree was one of the few female drummers in music at the time, but very effective.

The following clip, I do believe, comes from Shindig:
