The Rubettes – The Artists

The Rubettes were an English pop band put together of studio session musicians in 1973 by the songwriting team of Wayne Bickerton, then the head of A&R at Polydor Records, and his co-songwriter, Tony Waddington, after their doo-wop and 1950s American pop-influenced songs had been rejected by a number of existing acts. Waddington paired the group with manager John Morris, the husband of singer Clodagh Rodgers and under his guidance, the band duly emerged at the tail end of the glam rock movement, wearing trademark white suits and cloth caps on stage. Their first release, “Sugar Baby Love” was an instant hit and remains their best-known record. Subsequent hits followed and the band continued to tour well into the 2000s with two line-ups in existence.

Sugar Baby Love – The Song

Sugar Baby Love is a song recorded in 1973 and released in January 1974, is a bubblegum pop song, and the debut single of the Rubettes. Written by Wayne Bickerton and Tony Waddington and produced by Bickerton, engineered by John Mackswith at Lansdowne Recording Studios, and with lead vocals by Paul Da Vinci, “Sugar Baby Love” was the band’s one and only number one single in the UK Singles Chart, spending four weeks at the top of the chart in May 1974.

Jelly Baby – The Shape

Modelled into jelly baby. Jelly Babies are a type of soft sugar jelly sweet, shaped as plump babies in a variety of colours. They were first manufactured in Lancashire, England in the 19th century.[1] Their popularity waned in England before being revived by Bassett’s of Sheffield, Yorkshire who were responsible for mass-producing Jelly Babies from 1918. Bassett’s, now allocate individual name, shape, colour and flavour to different ‘babies’: Brilliant (red – strawberry), Bubbles (yellow – lemon), Baby Bonny (pink – raspberry), Boofuls (green – lime), Bigheart (purple – blackcurrant) and Bumper (orange).
