Joe Viglione review July 21, 2013
This two minute and fifty-four second rendition of Bobby Hebb's "Sunny" is jam-packed with rock, reggae and a splashy psychedelic guitar, imagine Sly and the Family Stone in slow motion with a thought-provoking vocal and solid groove. The mix is terrific, swirling textures under a soulful lead vocal that brings this song into a wonderful new dimension. With over 1400 recorded (and YouTube) performances it is amazing that Hebb's masterpiece continues to find new flavorings and vibrations. The solid drumbeat here allows the backing vocals and rising instrumentation to weave an entirely new chapter for this familiar melody. Captivating is the only way to describe it.
