The Sweet Marie - "Stella's Candy Store" (1972)

The Sweet Marie - "Stella's Candy Store" (Billboard #123, entered 2/3/73). Written by Donald Bennett. Produced by Darby James and the Sweet Marie. 45: "Stella's Candy Store"/"Another Feelin'" (Yardbird 1972). LP: Stuck in Paradise (Yardbird 1972).

A California head-rock trio with a Hawaiian following, the Sweet Marie recorded their 1972 Stuck in Paradise album (their second) in Honolulu. Its leadoff single was a back-alley rocker called "Stella's Candy Store," which caught enough fire nationally to bubble under on Billboard in early '73.
