'60s Easy Listening, Vocal, Bubblegum: Salt Water Taffy - Finder Keepers (1968-69 Buddah) (2009 Rev-Ola)


Digitally re-mastered and expanded edition of this 1968 album from the Bubblegum Pop outfit. Led by Rod McBrien, Salt Water Taffy were originally conceived as a white version of the 5th Dimension... when Bubblegum started to hit however, they reconfigured to a more poppy sound, and signed a deal with Buddah Records, spiritual home of Bubblegum. Arranged by Meco Monardo (later to have a monster hit with a Discofied Star Wars Theme), 'Finders Keepers' was a perfect Bubblegum hit: childish yet knowing. The album followed, with 12 perfect slices of New York radio-tastic Pop, dancey and hooky as hell! Perfect vocal harmonies met infectious beats, as Salt Water Taffy took it to the bridge! If you like a bit of sugar on your Superpop, you'll love this! With a bonus of the original mono mixes of their as rare as anything Buddah single, this is a Bubbletastic feast! (Rev-Ola)
