Around this time Honeybus reformed and were signed to Warner Brothers. An albums worth of material was recorded but never released. A test pressing of the album, "Recital" surfaced in 2007 on ebay and fetched £466. A pleasant enough record full of light pop tunes but doesn't qualify for the KILLER tag unlike it's predecessor, 1970's "Story".
"I'm A Gambler" was released again in 1973 on the independant label GM. The B-Side "Working Class Man" is just as good, if not better than anything on "Into Your Ears". Quite like Macca at his most whimsical, it has a distinctively "When I'm Sixty Four" feel to it. The Lyrics are sang with the least convincing working class accent I've ever heard and is clearly a piss take but still, a great tune and probably the best 30p I've ever spent! Around the time of this release Dello produced a single for American singer Leah. Both sides were cover versions taken from the Dello songbook ("Arise Sir Henry" & "Uptight Basil"). I've heard neither so can't pass judgement!
"I'm A Gambler" was released one last time in 1976 on Arista backed with "Tattered Robe", another fine Dello original, recalling Honeybus at their best. 1976 also saw the re-release of "I Can't Let Maggie Go" following is use on the popular UK television Nimble bread advert. Pete Dello quit the music business soon after.
