 s'sicfan: "the teddybears' rave-up", however, is an entirely different kettle of fish. . . one trusts. . .°

° - not yet 45catted/worlded, but some day, one day, "the oldest swinger in town" will resurface. . .

 Jelly Babies are a British candy.

  Obviously the name of this female group is regarded as politically incorrect now , but back in 1960 attitudes were different. On the " A " side , the girls harmonize in an appropriately coy manner on a mid-tempo number with lyrics which are thematically similar to the Beach Boys' " Ten Little Indians ". The track is greatly enhanced by the attractive lilting arrangement. I like this record , but I would imagine that very few people bought it. On the flip side is a song which I have always disliked since hearing it as a small child ; therefore , I cannot be objective about this group's take on it.

 Well it had me on the edge of my seat wondering where it was all going to end.And I'll bet a lot of you were also wondering what was going to rhyme with 'do the trick.'

 "The Golliwogs" with an "i" were the name of Creedence Clearwater Revival before 1968, the same 4 band members wore blonde Afro wigs as part of their costume, so sadly the same musical political incorrectness existed on this side of the Atlantic...John

I really have nothing to say about this other than political correctness didn't exist in 1960 hence this was able to be released...
