The oldie Sea of Love as performed by the Honey Drippers. The Honeydrippers were an English 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. As well as Plant, the band consisted of fellow Zeppelin member, guitarist Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck (a former Yardbirds member like Page) and other friends and well known studio musicians. They released only one EP on November 12, 1984 entitled The Honeydrippers: Volume One. The Honeydrippers had a Top Ten hit with a remake of the Phil Phillips’ tune, “Sea of Love”, and another Top 30 Hit with “Rockin’ At Midnight”. With the EP’s success, Plant stated that a full album would be recorded, but it never was. The band appeared on Saturday Night Live on December 15, 1984, performing “Rockin’ At Midnight” and “Santa Claus Is Back In Town.” The band featured Brian Setzer on guitar and Paul Shaffer on piano.
