Bobby Hebb's brother Harald was murdered on the day after President Kennedy 's assassination in November ofbut contrary to legend, those tragedies weren't the primary catalysts for Hebb to write "Sunny". They may have figured into it somehow, along with the civil rights struggle then in full swing. In one interview, he mentioned being lyrically inspired by a purple New York sunrise after a long night out on the town. Ross recruited Joe Renzettia former Philly session guitarist, as his arranger for Hebb's first Philips session, I Am Your Man - Bobby Hebb - Sunny By Bobby Hebb (Vinyl.
Surprisingly, "Sunny" was the last song waxed on February 21, at Bell Sound. First up was "Bread", a surging soul number about filthy lucre written by Hebb. Finally, they got around to laying "Sunny" on tape. Bobby's inspiring lyrics and riveting vocal were exquisitely supported by Renzetti's modulating arrangement, steadily building excitement from start to finish. Suddenly Bobby was in high demand, appearing as one of the preliminary acts on The Beatles 's last American tour.

Translate review to English. What a great thing it is to see this album released on CD. I'm not sure if it ever was. For a while there was a disc called "The Sunny Sessions" but by the time I found it it had gone out of print and was going for around a hundred dollars.
Trocadero has done a fine job with the album giving it a beautiful sound and a nice booklet with the original album liner notes and all the lyrics. There are twelve songs, just as it was with no bonus tracks.
A few of those might have been nice maybe his third single, Love Me but I'm happy enough just to have the album. Bobby Hebb was born and raised in Nashville and after doing a song and dance act with his older brother and LP) trumpet in the U. He was also plating small clubs in Nashville but took the advice of his manager to go to New York City where he could get a career going.
He wrote Sunny one night to include in the set he was doing at a small club Brandy's and it went over with the audiences. The song began to take off on its own. First a Japanese singer had a hit with it in Asia, then it appaered on a vibes album by Dave Pike. Bobby then decided to record it himself and the result was one of the big hits of It soared to 2 on Billboard and was one of the top 30 songs of the year. It also got him a featured spot on the Beatles' U. It became one of the most-played radio songs ever and still gets lots of airplay and has been recorded by scores of artists.
It's a beautiful and unique song. The opening grabs you immediately with the voice coming in on a drumroll like no other song had ever done.
From there it builds from mellow to almost shouting with a chorus backing it all up. He gets into a blues feeling on Got you On My Mind. The sound of Memphis was just beginning to happen in a big way in and already Wilson Pickett was a star with Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin about to get big in That is a great song but it stsrts really mellow and takes too long to get going in radio terms. Bread grabs you right from the start.
But that's just a thought. Mid's radio was a tough world full of one hit artists, many of whom like Bobby were deserving of more. Bobby returned to Nashville and continued to write songs and perform. He passed away in and will always be remembered for Sunny, one of the great songs of the sixties. No defects. Exactly as advertised. Not only is the title song great LP) ever, the entire CD is memorable, LP).
