5.0 out of 5 stars CATCHY VOCAL POP
Compared to a lot of stuff that fills the charts today, these little ditties are excellent. It may be called bubblegum, but most of this music has stood the test of time very well with their catchy hooks and lovely vocals.
My favorites include the female vocal pop of The Cuff Links and Tracy, The Monkees with the melodic I'm A Believer, Dawn and their vibrant pop...

3.0 out of 5 stars Half and Half
Bubblegum was the end installment of high school pop and ran well into the 70s depending on your definition of the music.
Tony Orlando & Dawn were not really bubblegum-neither were the Monkees- but many of the real deals are missing-Chewy Chewy and Simon Says come to mind.
In fact most bubblegum was the product of Buddah Records but in order to be too ambitious...

3.0 out of 5 stars Half and Half, 15 Oct. 2008
This review is from: 25 All Time Greatest Bubblegum (Audio CD)
Bubblegum was the end installment of high school pop and ran well into the 70s depending on your definition of the music.
Tony Orlando & Dawn were not really bubblegum-neither were the Monkees- but many of the real deals are missing-Chewy Chewy and Simon Says come to mind.
In fact most bubblegum was the product of Buddah Records but in order to be too ambitious the compilers have wandered into other fields.
The previous reviewer has stated the Cuff Links were a girl group but this is incorrect-the Cuff Links were Ron Dante full stop-the voice of the Archies.
As a style of American pop music bubblegum was as good as anything from the late 60s and is more important than any amount of 70s designer rock AOR-MTV because its worn well and will never die

This review is from: 25 All Time Greatest Bubblegum (Audio CD)
Compared to a lot of stuff that fills the charts today, these little ditties are excellent. It may be called bubblegum, but most of this music has stood the test of time very well with their catchy hooks and lovely vocals.
My favorites include the female vocal pop of The Cuff Links and Tracy, The Monkees with the melodic I'm A Believer, Dawn and their vibrant pop song Knock Three Times, Tommy James with the psychedelic pop of I Think We're Alone now and Love Grows by Edison Lighthouse with its great harmonies.
Other brilliant tracks include the classic bubblegum number Sugar Sugar by The Archies, My Baby Loves Lovin' by he White Plains, Funny Funny by Sweet (Who later in their career became a proper rock band), Jam Up Jelly Tight by Tommy Roe and Dancing On A Saturday Night by Barry Blue.
In retrospect, I think a lot of this music was unfairly dismissed. Most of these tracks are melodic pop songs and are very well performed. This is a wonderful compilation of the greatest hits from the golden age of pop.
