Very few of you are going to recognize this song unless of a certain generation but trust me that “Sugartime” was a huge hit in its day. The McGuire Sisters were Phyllis (lead singer), Dorothy and Christine and they were the next big girl group following the Andrews Sisters of the 40s. The sisters were pretty much big band pop style gown wearing singers standing in front of a microphone act. That seemed old fashioned already in the 50s. Yet, the McGuire Sisters were a major act scoring two monster #1 hits in the post rock and roll Elvis era. There was “Sincerely” then their signature “Sugartime.” After record sales waned, the sisters remained top Vegas performers and popular variety TV show guests during the 60s. There was a TV movie about them titled appropriately “Sugartime.”

This may or may not surprise you, but the McGuires weren't the first recording of that song I heard. (Yeah, I know....)

I've heard them, when I was young. I couldn't name any of their songs, though.

I remember them but I was very very young. I am so pleased that bands moved on and that style did not continue to be popular. Happy New Year!

Excuse my ignorance but I have not heard of them. It was before my time. I do like the harmonies though!
