One last posting about the nonsense music of the late sixties. The radio airwaves were filled with the sound of bubble gum pop music and was indeed very popular whether  we liked it or not. Once again I will have to admit that even I liked a couple of the tunes. The Fruitgum Company's "Indian Giver" was catchy and by today's standards would probably qualify as  very politically incorrect with it's implications about Native Americans. I do promise that I will not visit Disco and will return to our regularly programed material.  And we will forgive you if you hum or sing along to this stuff!

how could omit The Cowsills. "Indian Lake" it was a solid Double Bubble-Bazooka bubble gum hit!!! They also had some the radio hit with"Hair" from the Hippy-Tribe Rock Musical "HAIR" as well as the Sunshine-Psychedelic hit "The Rain, The Park & Other Things"...

Quite a quality compilation, I am enjoying it thoroughly!
No Crispian St. Peters or the Archies?
Maybe in Vol. II. LOL
Thanks much!!

The bubble gum thing seems to be a bit more popular than I thought. Maybe a volume two since I am getting some suggestions

I know I should remain anonymous when requesting Bubble Gum but it didn't stop me from buying The Monkees on CD so- Thanks for this collection. steVe


Is there anyway you can send me a link for this? My computer recently crashed and I lost this mix. Thank you!
