It's a beautiful day at the Winchester Public Library in Winchester, Mass. where I write this as my car is getting an alignment. The sun is out, the snowstorm is over and the early November 7-8 snow is now evaporating under a "Sunny" Friday November 9.
Our web designer David West has performed a terrific job for both sites and in the next few weeks you will see more of my essays as well as "guest essayists" on the importance of the song "Sunny."
Sunnythesong.com is going to reach out to artists who have performed Bobby's classic composition and ask them about their approach to "Sunny." Our first interview is scheduled to be with Sophie Debattista who has a new rendition of "Sunny" about to be released on Tesco. You can find it on Sophie's TotallySophie.com website as well as on Apple iTunes and soon on Amazon. Here's Sophie's "Love to Love You" on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Love-to-You/dp/B0060G9IA6/ref=sr_1_5?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1323260611&sr=1-5
Sophie's site on Amazon is here:
Sophie's iTunes site is here - though "Sunny" is not in release just yet, only available on her TotallySophie page. https://itunes.apple.com/mt/artist/sophie/id477109026

We have a video of Pat Martino talking about his rendition of "Sunny" which we will upload sometime and provide the text here.
Please keep checking for updates here as we build BobbyHebb.com and Sunnythesong.com with easier access to a list of all the versions of "Sunny" that we can find, both on record, on YouTube and in other areas on the internet.
SPECIAL THANKS TO RICHARD ELY FOR HIS TIRELESS EFFORTS IN CATALOGING ALL THE 'SUNNY' RENDITIONS ON THEIR MANY, MANY RELEASES ON DIFFERENT FORMATS

As we work on the first Bobby Hebb boxed set we are writing the liner notes for the 16 page booklet. Some of that information will be available as a "preview" for our readers here.
On October 31, 2012 I saw the new James Bond movie "Skyfall" at noon (wearing my film critic's hat) and then went to an authoring lab in Brookline, Massachusetts that handles many of the Jimi Hendrix DVD titles. I had a 90 minute or so meeting there and plan right now on working with that company to author our 2 hour Bobby Hebb DVD.
More information on covers of "Sunny", songs for the boxed set and news on Bobby Hebb from around the world.
