"Sugar, Sugar" was recorded by The Archies, a group of studio musicians
managed by Don Krishner with lead vocals by Ron Dante, accompanied by
Toni Wine and Andy Kim. Together they provided the voices of the Archies
using the multitracking recording technique. The song was one of the most
unexpected hits of the year and one of the biggest bubblegum hits of all
time, both in America and in Great Britain. This was partially due to the
association with the popular CBS-TV Saturday morning cartoon series.

Studio musicians on this song: Ron Frangipane – keyboard, Chuck Rainey –
bass, Gary Chester – drums, Dave Appell – guitar, Harry Amanatian – guitar,
and Ray Stevens doing the handclaps.
