Just to let everyone know, I lost my partner at the beginning of August, and I'm not sure when I'll be able to get back into this blog, whether it be new posts or reupping dead links. I will let you know when and if I am ready to come back to this blog, but for the moment it is unfortunately not a priority. Sorry.


If you wish to download an album off of this blog and the link is dead, please request it either in the comments or the Chat Box and I will reupload it as soon as possible. :)

And don't forget to follow the Isle on Facebook and Twitter!

Pure Sugar - Pure Sugar (1998)

So, by request, here is the one and only album by Pure Sugar. Comprised of vocalist Jennifer Starr and producers Pete Lorimer and Richard "Humpty" Vission (who went on to greater acclaim as remixers), Pure Sugar was indeed that - a sticky sweet pop dance concoction. For more details on the group and this album, please go to my 'sister' blog Milk Carton Pop Stars, where my delightful companion Bunny (Bomitoni to you) did a bang up feature on the group. I too wonder what became of the beautiful voiced and bodied Jennifer Starr (UPDATE: Bomitoni recently found Jennifer and did and interview with her on Milk Carton Pop Stars! Check it out!). She has a true diva voice and is very easy on the eyes. She surely could have been a solo star. Pure Sugar didn't find much of an audience outside the gay world, which is somewhat understandable given the album is heavy on club anthems. It's pure disco house, with traces of trance and pop. The lead-off single, "Delicious", echoes the A Taste Of Honey disco hit "Boogie Oogie Oogie", while another single, "These Are The Times", utilizes Chic's "Good Times". It's a dance lovers dream. If only we could get a second helping of this sugary treat.

  2. Here's what info I've found so far.

    She's has dabbled in acting, her last film in 1999 (The Murder in China Basin ) in a starring role.

    The album itself was well reviewed and recieved signiicant radio airplay (Apparently anyways).

    Delicious reached no.1 in Japan!

    If I find anthing else I'll let you know.

  7. Pity, I though we might have gotten somewhere with her -I'll keep looking, she has to be somwhere.

    By the way, Universal just put up the music video on the 25 of March and today (27th Match) it's already at 67 thousand views.

    Maybe a comeback could happen if it gets even more views?

    Here's to hoping :D
