Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered edition including bonus tracks. In 1967, The Sugar Shoppe began in Toronto as a studio project. Lead Shoppe-keeper Peter Mann teamed up with vocalist Laurie Hood and Lee Harris and London, Ontario vocalist-and future Titanic star Victor Garber. After having some success in Canada, the quartet set their sights on America and signed to Capitol Records the following year. Produced by Wrecking Crew session musician/Glen Campbell producer Al de Lory The Sugar Shoppe features a bright and breezy L.A. soft pop sound, with a hint of Psychedelia akin to the Mamas & the Papas and the 5th Dimension. Arranged by lounge legend/electronic music pioneer Mort Garson, the writer of Ruby & the Romantics' "Our Day Will Come." Also included here are mono single mixes of four songs from the album.

Format: Audio CD
The Sugar Shoppe strike me in many ways as Canada's answer to The Mamas and The Papas. Although the arrangements get a little show tuney in places, at best they are just sublime and the harmonising is superb throughout. Their reworking of Bobbie Gentry's "Pappa Won't You Let me go to Town" is a wonderful 6/8 romp that could and probably should have been a world wide hit had anyone thought to promote it.

The Sugar Shoppe, Capitol ST 2959 stereo. Lp dates August, 1968. Reissue new reproduction vinyl Lp.

My review is for a reissue vinyl copy on fairly heavy vinyl from about 2010+. The cover is printed on slick laminated posterboard, and the Lp label is an exact reproduction of Capitol's 1962-1968 T/ST 1650-2999 black/rainbow ring label (pre-"...a subsidiary of Capitol Industries, Inc..." version in the extreme fine print at the bottom which began with the November, 1968 renumbering of Lps at SWBC-101 Beatles' Apple "White Album" and ST 103 Glen Campbell WICHITA LINEMAN titles). The vinyl reproduction is pressed on very slick greasy looking heavy black vinyl, far heavier than late '60s period Lps. Original copies' album covers were paper glued over thin brown/grey cardboard.

This is a nice middle-of-the-road vanilla trippy hippie album, which was a kind of genre' that Capitol was pushing as "rock" music after 1966, trying to find something that clicked with record buyers in place of guitar rock (Beatles and Beach Boys) that the label despised to concentrate on making finger-popping hip swinging guys in velour tuxedos working the 'Vegas audiences like Tony Bruno and Michael Dees (newly on the label after making easy listening crooner pop for Dot Records) as the Next Big Thing. Alan Livingston, Capitol Records' President, stated to the U.S. congress in 1965 that the label wanted to sell better music instead of being forced by teenagers to make the bulk of their sales on Beatles and Beach Boys' records (1966: 56% of Capitol's sales were to those two acts).
