OHIO Players- Honey (1975)

Honey is the third Mercury album by The Ohio Players, released in 1975. Like previous albums, Honey is known for its very sexy cover photo. In this case, the model was Playboy magazine’s October 1974 Playmate of the Month, Ester Cordet.

The album was recorded and remixed at Paragon Recording Studios in Chicago, with Barry Mraz as their recording engineer. Marty Link, Steve Kusiciel, Rob Kingsland, and Paul Johnson are credited as tape operators. Gilbert Kong mastered the final mix at Masterdisk in New York City.

It is the fourth of five Ohio Players albums that were also available in quadraphonic (4-channel stereo), released in the 8-track tape format. The quad mix was available on 8-track tape in the U.S., and on vinyl in Japan. It was released digitally as a DTS Audio CD by DTS Entertainment in 2001.

An urban legend surrounded the song “Love Rollercoaster” that the girl on the album cover was stabbed in the studio when she threatened to sue in connection with the cover shooting, and her screams are heard on the song. Like the controversy surrounding Paul McCartney’s supposed death, this was a hoax; the scream was actually that of keyboardist Billy Beck. The woman on the album cover is actually Panamanian-born model Ester Cordet, Playboy magazine’s Playmate of the Month for the October 1974 issue.
