Jeff Barry

Jeff Barry was truly the driving force behind the success of the Archies.  He produced the first four Archies studio albums and wrote many of the songs for those albums  (including the Record of the Year for 1969, "Sugar, Sugar," with Andy Kim) plus the Dance of the Week tunes used every Saturday morning on The Archie Show.

If you listen closely, you can even hear Jeff's distinctive bass background vocals on a few Archies tunes such as "Jingle Jangle" and "You Little Angel, You."

Of course, The Archies project comprises just a small percentage of this man's career accomplishments.  He's been writing and producing since the early 60's for artists such as the Ronettes, the Crystals, and Andy Kim.
