In 1968 Don Kirchner started to assemble a studio band to record as the Archies, a popular comic book series and cartoon show on US Television. The Archies music would be featured on the cartoon show and released on records. Miraculously, the bubble gum pop sound of the Archies also generated huge hits. In 1969, Sugar Sugar became a number one hit for the Archies. Let’s listen…….
While the Archies were riding high on the charts another studio band was recording songs which would eventually be released under the name, The Cuff Links. One of these songs, Tracy, became a top ten hit and a gold record. See what you think……
As it turns out these two fake groups had something more in common than scoring big radio hits in 1969.
Be the first to post a comment that correctly identifies how the two groups were related and I will give you credit when I post the official answer in tomorrow’s post.
