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 Sunny’s records for our personal collections. That quickly turned into the desire to reissue some of his vast catalogue 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.
