The Honeydrippers: Volume One is a mini-album released by a semi-all-star band led by rock singer Robert Plant on November 12, 1984 by Es Paranza Records. The recording project originated when Atlantic Records president Ahmet Ertegun wanted an album of his favourite songs from the 1950s recorded. Plant was chosen because Ertegun had seen his pick-up band, The Honeydrippers, performing '50s standards. "Sea of Love" became Plant's biggest selling single. As yet, there are no plans for a Volume Two, as Plant does not want to be known as a pop "crooner".
