The Best of

One of the so-called ‘Bubblegum’ sound pioneers, the 1910 Fruitgum Company began their career with three million-selling singles, ‘Simon Says’, ‘1,2,3 Red Light’ and ‘Indian Giver’.

This trio of songs, plus a bumper 25 additional titles – including some rare Italian language versions – are now brought together as the ultimate ‘Best Of’ for an act whose good-time records still fill dance floors the world over.

The term ‘Bubblegum’ may have originally been coined in 1967 by the new ‘serious rock’ brigade as a put-down of music aimed at a pre-teen audience - but written and performed by many top American and British session players, many ‘Bubblegum’ discs are now viewed with a new appreciation. We defy you to sit still and listen to this!
