Sugar, Sugar [Prestige]

by: The Archies

Sugar, Sugar is very brief at only 11 tracks, but fans of the hookiest single of 1969 probably won't mind; the Archies, a studio conglomeration including veteran songwriters Jeff Barry and Andy Kim as well as session vocalist Ron Dante, didn't record very much and their top three hits are accounted for here. First comes the obvious one, the hit title track, followed by the two hits that bookended it, first single "Bang Shang-a-Lang" and the follow-up Top Ten hit "Jingle Jangle." There are a few Archies compilations out there with better track listings, including Varese's Absolutely the Best of the Archies and Master Classics' The Very Best Of. ~ John Bush
