After a series of LPs for Hi, the Bill Black Combo moved to CBS for Black with Sugar, but the label change does little if anything to alter the band's basic approach - their hard-edged, soulful instrumentals still surge with the energy of funk. The sweetness promised in the title comes in the form of pop and Motown covers including "Hey Jude," "California Dreamin'" and "For Once in My Life," but the music retains its mutant rockabilly weirdness regardless of the material at hand.
