I love this concept. The bee-vocals on all the tracks is so charming, but that is why this became a major cult classic act to follow. I first heard "Everybody Dance" on a Ron Hardy mix from the Muzix Box and i was so taken by its appeal that i went for a hunt straight away. I just slam on a Bumblebee track if i have depressing days and it really makes me a little happier mainly because of the vocals. i have also played tracks out on clubs and very so often i get question what it is im playing and they love it.
Happy disco for the happy minded.

Bumblebee Unlimited was a studio concept of producers/songwriters/arrangers Gregory Carmichael and Patrick Adams that merged hot disco music with sped up vocals to suggest singing bugs. One track even makes a sly reference to "Fly of the Bumblebee." The vocalists who get "bug-a-zied" include Leroy Burgess and Carmichael.
