In 1969 Sugar Sugar sounded fine…

This was the first single I ever bought with my own pocket money. I was travelling to Blackheath from Camberwell and back by bus for school here in London aged 7 to 11.

As my interest in music grew I started buying records at a proper record shop in Blackheath (image Jackie German):

Sugar Sugar is pure bubblegum pop but super catchy and was apparently offered to The Monkees by publisher Don Kirshner but they declined. The b-side Melody Hill is also a favourite of mine.
