Fantastic Voyage continues to bring the Sugar series to vinyl, with 32 standout tracks selected by Stuart Colman from the 75-track 3 CD set Classy Sugar. Classy Sugar is the successor to the thoroughly-recommended Fantastic Voyage compilations, Heavy Sugar (FVDV051), Savvy Sugar (FVDV059) and Sassy Sugar (FVDV098). Whereas those releases were devoted to New Orleans, the West Coast and Nashville respectively, Classy Sugar focusses on the Big Apple, New York City. During the 1950s and early '60s, the recording studios in New York were filled to capacity with R&B performers, mainstream vocalists and teenage upstarts, all seeking to mine the primeval rock & roll seam. It really was open season, in that anyone with enough chutzpah could have a stab at this largely untried and untested format. The subsequent onslaught brought about a host of fresh names, including Bobby Barbara Evans and Danny Valentino. But, whilst many of those seeking success would only deliver an occasional single, newcomers like Neil Sedaka, Jeff Barry and Bobby Darin would go on to enjoy lengthy careers both as artists and songwriters. Classy Sugar provides a birds-eye view of the sessions that were colonized by such seasoned pros as saxman 'King' Curtis, guitarist George Barnes, drummer Panama Francis, and piano wizard Bert Keyes. This Manhattan melodrama also served as a training ground for the new breed of producers, managers, agents and song pluggers who would one day end up running the music industry that employed them. As you might expect, there is no shortage of surprises and hard-to-find gems that serve to make Classy Sugar the Pure Essence of New York Rock & Roll.
