Editorial Reviews

So what are Sugar Pop Classics? Just incredibly tuneful, hook-filled gems from some of the most talented one-hit wonders (and some multi-hit artists) you could hear on the radio between 1966 and 1974. Polished to a fine-sounding gleam in this carefully remastered collection, here is nearly an hour's worth of Top 20 Pop hits you will surely remember and probably won't be able to stop humming. Features the famous sound and packaging quality found on all the Eric Hard To Find 45s on CD volumes: only the correct single versions from the master tapes in true stereo wherever possible. Includes a 12 page booklet with detailed biographies of all the artists by well-known music author Fred Bronson. The album producer's picks here include the fantastic Spector-esque concoction ''Sugar Baby Love'' by the Rubettes which virtually defines this genre. Too bad the song is so little known in the USA (but #1 in the UK). Also the eternally smooth 1900 Yesterday (a great song to wake up to) and the symphonic showmanship of Jefferson and Baby Take Me in Your Arms. All in the spectacular stereo they deserve!

Customer Reviews

This was a great addition to my collection.
Janet and Terry Jones
You would be hard pressed to hear these great songs on most so-called oldies stations these days.
Music Luvr
This collection is a delightful candy shop of bubblegum hits and rarities.

Notwithstanding the music-listening public's embrace of lossy compression music files that have relegated the CD music format to near dinosaur status, a few companies continue to take the higher road. And, in spite of the additional challenge of having to license tracks from the rights owners in the domestic market, Eric Records charges ahead with two new volumes in their "Hard to Find 45's on CD" series.

This volume, number 11, subtitled "Sugar Pop Classics", gathers up a sampling of melodious heard-on-the-a.m.-radio tunes from the late 60's and early 70's. Some detractors may scowl at the saccharinity of these sometimes formula-driven ditties, but they offered a bright and tuneful alternative to the caustic rock side of the then pop music spectrum. And while every one of the 19 songs included here made the top 40 and would be familiar to pop radio listeners at the time, these are not now the stuff of many oldies stations' play lists nor are they readily available on other reissue CD's.

This refreshing new compilation CD offers a generous 19 tracks, all done with Eric's commitment to no-compromise sound quality. All tracks, save two (6 and 12) are presented in glorious wide-channel stereo, and one of these mono tracks is the original, uncensored version of Lou Christie's "Rhapsody in the Rain" as opposed to the "cleaned-up" stereo version that has made the rounds on other reissue CD's. Reliving the music here is the main purpose but if you ever wondered about the performers or the story behind the tune, Eric's extensive liner notes booklet offers lots of interesting reading with stuff few fans, if anyone, knew about even when these songs were populating the airwaves.

Must admit I really only bought this because of past experience with Eric's top quality releases. On paper the disc didn't look that enticing to me as a number of the records charted quite low or not at all in my country. However now that I have the collection, it's great! A terrific selection. A succession of records that blend very well together. Great sound. To name a couple of highlights I'd nominate "Sugar Baby Love" and "Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep", but it's a very even collection.

Eric Records continues to produce the very best various artist compilations in the Pop Music genre! Hard to Find 45s on CD, Vol. 11: Sugar Pop Classics gathers 19 sweet hits from the 60s and 70s, many of which most listeners will be quite familiar with, as well as some that "bubbled under" the top of the charts. As with all Eric Records CDs in the series, the song selection, sequencing, sound quality, and liner notes (which include photos) are all top notch! I especially appreciated the inclusion of "Early in the Morning" by Vanity Fare, "Will You Be Staying After Sunday" by The Peppermint Rainbow, "Shame, Shame" by Magic Lanterns, and "Baby Take Me In Your Arms" by Jefferson. You would be hard pressed to hear these great songs on most so-called oldies stations these days. This is what makes these Eric Records compilations so enjoyable... there are plenty of songs which you already love, as well as a nice helping of songs that you may have missed when they originally charted, which will become new favorites! We are fortunate that Eric Records helps to keep this music alive! This is one of those CDs that you will be proud to add to your collection and which you'll enjoy listening to time and time again!

It is wonderful to have Eric Records release this compilation CD of late 60's/early 70's hits. The selection of songs is exceptional. Out of the 19 songs, I didn't have 11 of them on any CD in my collection already. How can you go wrong with such energized, feel good songs as MY BABY LOVES LOVIN', NICE TO BE WITH YOU, MONTEGO BAY, CHICK-A-BOOM, and all the rest. The sound is sharp and clear, and the booklet includes full liner notes, photos and track information. With record companies in the US virtually having stopped re-issuing oldies on CD, I commend Eric Records for pushing forth and releasing such a superb CD . Some of these songs may have been released before on various CD's, but copyrights change, and many CD collections put out in the 80's and 90's are now out of print. Rhino has been corporately owned for a decade, and no longer releasing CD collections like their Have A Nice Day or Didn't It Blow Your Mind series that thay used to. Same with Varese, and other labels. Thank God that Eric Records is still working to put out real CD's of music, when music was great. This CD is timeless, when artists, songwriters, record companies, and radio stations all released and played scores of singles. All competed in the process to make a great record, and get a hit. It's not like that anymore. Music, radio , record stores, and labels have changed or closed. Unbelievable when you look at the productive, now historic decades of the 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's , when music and radio were in it's prime. I hope that we see more CD releases of hard-to-find oldies on CD. I'd love more " one hit wonders " of the 60's and 70's. Any great oldie that made not just Top 40, but Top 100, please do more volumes.
