Can the British compete with our American cousins to bring us the most sugary rock music?

Rowntree's Fruit Gums

Following last month’s show it’s time to focus on lighter, more upbeat material. I’ve exercised some artistic judgement and only included tracks worth a listen. So no Jack Wild solo material!

  1. The Sweet – Honeysuckle Love (Funny How Sweet Co-Co Can Be, RCA, 1971)
  2. The Fourmost – Easy Squeezy (Single A-side, CBS, 1969)
  3. The Chads – Laurelwood Carnival Fair (Single B-side to Dearest Belinda, Trend, 1970)
  4. Manfred Mann – Ha! Ha! Said The Clown (Single A-side, Fontana, 1970)
  5. The Marmalade – Wait For Me Marianne (Single A-side, CBS, 1968)
  6. The Gibsons – The Magic Book (Single A-side, Deram, 1967)
