The original and best of the Archies,
This review is from: Sugar Sugar (Audio CD)
The huge success of "Sugar Sugar" in 1970 spawned a host of similar bands and cartoon characters and led to the term "Bubblegum" being applied to songs that were sweet and lightweight in the lyric and instrumentation department.
The three UK hit singles, and their B-sides, are on this collection, together with eighteen other songs that make the Monkees sound like Led Zeppelin. The unwary should note that "Bang Shang A Lang", "Sugar and Spice" and "Rock and Roll Music" are not the same as songs of the same title by other famous groups. The last is only rock and roll in a Scooby-Doo sort of way.
Nevertheless it is all enjoyable and they are all the original recordings, cleaned up and transferred nicely onto CD. Perhaps best in short bursts, but well worth the dosh.
