Robert Plant took to Twitter yesterday (January 8th) to tease a reunion of his one-off solo project band, the Honeydrippers. Plant tweeted a photo of himself and Chic's Nile Rodgers, the guitarist on the group's sole release, the 1984's The Honeydrippers: Volume One EP.  The photo of him and Rodgers in the studio: "Another reunion…Honeydrippers Vol I 1984, Part 2..."

The Honeydrippers: Volume One was released on September 24th, 1984 and peaked at Number Five on the Billboard 200. The album was the brainchild of Plant and Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Ertegun, who co-produced the set with Atlantic's Phil Carson.

In addition to Nile Rodgers on rhythm guitar, the EP's lead guitar duties were split between Jimmy Page -- who tackled the six-string on two tracks -- including the Top Three hit remake of Phil Phillips' 1959 classic "Sea Of Love." Jeff Beck was featured on two songs -- including the album's second single, the Top 25 remake of Roy Brown's "Good Rockin' At Midnight."
