The Great Grannies –Sugar Man
The Great Grannies –Sugar Man/Facts of Life –Corridor Records 45-301 (1965 US)
Sugar Man falls somewhere between a classic Girl Group sound and a “Girls from The Garage” performance juxtaposing Fuzz with Bee hives up-to-the-mic vocals. It’s an infectious ditty (dum dum ditty) and although not reaching the heights of The Tammys (Egyptian Shumba), it definitely hits the spot in my book. It looks like the band was comprised of 3 sisters and came out of Odessa (Texas). 47 years on they are no doubt grannies in their own right, but as to their current greatness....who can say?
