Buckwheat - 1971 - Pure Buckwheat Honey

Singer/guitarist/keyboardist Timothy Harrison Dulaine had spent time in New York City as a member of the band Clouds and working as a solo act. He'd also attracted a friend/mentor in the form of A&R man/producer Robert Margouleff. In 1968 he decided to form a band, bassist Charlie Bell, drummer Danny Casey, and lead guitarist John Govro. Dulaine had played with Casey in Clouds, and he'd worked with bassist Bell in The Raggamuffins. As Buckwheat the band's first big break came when they were hired as the house band at New York's famed Cafe Wha. The resulting publicity attracted the attention of Jeffrey Katz and Jerry Kasenetz's Buddah Records-affiliated Super K label which quickly signed them to a recording deal. Recorded at New York's Broadway Recording Studios with Margouleff producing, "Pure Buckwheat Honey" didn't win any prizes for originality. With Casey, Dulaine, and Govro sharing writing duties, the band was clearly looking for a musical identify, latched on to a diverse set of influences including 1930s English music hall ('Radio'), country ('The Albert Hotel'), and a healthy dose of The Beatles.(Scott Blackerby)
