4.0 out of 5 stars A shop worth visiting
The fact that this group of Canadian Sunshine Poppers never troubled the U S chart too much doesn't mean they were no good it simply means that not everybody got a bite of the cherry.The Sugar Shoppe were as good as anybody and in their native country they were called "Canada's Mamas & Papas".

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad.
Marketed as a Canadian Mamas & Papas I was very expectant of this album. It has a few moments but in general it's average for its genre. Seeing a two women-two men band just makes me wish the excellent 'The Free Design' had made more albums back in the day........oh well.

This review is from: The Sugar Shoppe (Audio CD)
The fact that this group of Canadian Sunshine Poppers never troubled the U S chart too much doesn't mean they were no good it simply means that not everybody got a bite of the cherry.The Sugar Shoppe were as good as anybody and in their native country they were called "Canada's Mamas & Papas".
After a couple of local singles the first of which was a version of Julie Andrews' Thoroughly Modern Milie they signed with the Capitol label and made an album of 5 original songs the rest covers.Big names became involved including supersession drummer Hal Blaine,Mort Garson who acted as arranger and Al de Lory who once cut a single for one of the Phil Spector labels
The booklet has notes by ex members about how they found the songs and also includes a facsimile of the original sleeve notes
The only one to achieve lasting fame was Victor Garber who was in the recent Titanic movie

This review is from: The Sugar Shoppe (Audio CD)
I didn't expect too much from this but this is exactly what Mamas and Papas, and Spanky and our Gang fans will like. A very short lifespan Canadian outfit but I really liked this. We'll worth it.

Great pop songs and wonderful harmonies from this short lived but incredibly good Canadian Mamas and Papas.
The bonus tracks are great too and a very detailed booklet.
