A Taste Of Honey had been around since forming in Los Angeles in 1971. It wasn’t until 1978 that they got a record contract and recorded an album. “Boogie Oogie Oogie” was their first single, a disco song with crossover appeal- and it went to #1. They would only have one more Top 40 hit and it was another big one- a #3 in 1981- “Sukiyaki.” A Taste Of Honey won a Grammy for Best New Artist in 1979 beating The King Elvis Costello. I remember turning the television off and not watching the Granny Awards again for about fifteen years.
