1. Product Details

COLORED VINYL YELLOW
On limited Translucent Yellow vinyl. Big Crown Records is proud to present Dear Sunny... a compilation of Sunny & The Sunliners covers by Big Crown artists. Since the first time we heard Should I Take You Home by Sunny & The Sunliners we have been avid fans. That record which we were introduced to on MF Classy Chris now legendary mixtape The Time Is Right set a lot of things in motion. It started of course with tracking down copies and collecting all of Sunnys records for our personal collections. That quickly turned into the desire to reissue some of his vast catalog on our label for the rest of the world to hear. We got in touch with Sunny and his son David and brought the idea to them. It took a lot of phone calls a visit to their home in San Antonio and three more years of calls and emails to convince them that our New York record label was a good place for them to entrust their music. After getting to know each other well enough Dave said You have been calling us non-stop for more than three years you MUST mean what you are saying and with that we signed a deal to do a reissue project on Big Crown. We then flew out to San Antonio again this time with a scanner and a videographer. We sat down with Sunny to interview him went through his vast collection of photos and talked about his life and career. Sunny was even kind enough to let us film him performing acoustic versions of a few songs. We used all of that material for our 2017 compilation Mr Brown Eyed Soul. That release is our highlight reel of Sunnys Soul tunes. Looking back at the response to that compilation it is safe to say that we achieved our goal of connecting a whole new audience to Sunnys incredible music. We also made his rarest records readily available to collectors at a price that wouldnt empty their pockets. The concept for Dear Sunny... came to us right after we signed the deal. We wanted our artists to cover his music as a tribute to him. Three years later we released the digital album on Sept 4th to coincide with Sunnys 77th birthday. The response has been nothing but love and now we are ready to press this up on vinyl with the addition of Liam Baileys scorching cover of Give Me Time. Everyone here stepped up to fill very big shoes doing these covers. Bobby Oroza teamed up with Cold Diamond & Mink and made a smashing version of Should I Take You Home. The Shacks took on the anthemic Smile Now Cry Later while Holy Hive covers If I Could See You Now building off the uptempo dance floor energy of the original. Paul & The Tall Trees bring a crooning vibe to Rain Makes Me Blue and Brainstory turned Runaway into a haunting ballad reminiscent of early Lee Hazelwood productions. Some of these turn out to be covers of covers. Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band takes on the funk collectors holy grail from Sunny his cover of Wars Get Down while 79.5 take Sunnys version of My Dream and change the vibe from a floating love song to theme music for the brokenhearted. Mr. Lee Fields does The One Whos Hurting Is You and the latest addition to the Big Crown Roster Lizette and Quevin do a rendition of the song that brought Sunny to Dick Clarks American Bandstand in 1963 and catapulted him to fame his cover of Little Willie Johns Talk To Me. So as the letter begins Dear Sunny.. we hope that you enjoy this homage Sir. Thank you for all the music you have given all of us it has been a pleasure to work with you and to get a chance to know you and your family. We will keep calling Dave every other week trying to get you in the studio with Leon to record some new material until it happens or you flat out tell us no... but all jokes aside thank you Sunny. This was all really a dream come true for us. We hope everyone enjoys this homage to the living legend San Antonios finest Mr. Brown Eyed Soul Sunny Ozuna as much as we do.
