AllMusic Review by

Buddah was one of the prime peddlers of bubblegum during the late '60s, featuring such staples of the genre as 1910 Fruitgum Co., the Lemon Pipers and Ohio Express. The Complete Buddah Chart Singles, Vol. 1 contains most of the biggest hits from those groups -- "Simon Says," "1, 2, 3 Red Light," "Green Tambourine," "Yummy Yummy Yummy" -- plus the Mulberry Fruit Band's "Yes, We Have No Bananas" and the Five Stairsteps & Cubie's "The Shadow of Your Love." So, it does have the bulk of the hits -- and those that aren't here are on the second volume -- but the lesser-known singles are too sweet and gimmicky for anyone but hardcore bubblegum collectors.
