 Laurence Juber of WINGS tracks "SUNNY"
Laurence Juber Releases a New Album, FINGERBOARD ROAD, and a New Book
http://www.broadwayworld.com/bwwbooks/article/Laurence-Juber-Releases-a-New-Album-FINGERBOARD-ROAD-and-a-New-Book-20150313#

A trip to Savannah, Georgia, inspired the arrangement of 'Georgia On My Mind.' 'Go Now' was essentially Juber's audition piece for Wings, when he played it with McCartney cohort Denny Laine on a UK TV show in 1977. 'Won't Get Fooled Again' represents a particular era of late '60's/early '70s British rock. Laurence debuted this version with Pete Townshend in the audience. 'Without You' written by the Badfinger team of Pete Ham and Tom Evans and famously covered by Harry Nilsson, is a quintessential melodic rock pop song, here given an emotional and dynamic solo performance. 'I Won't Last A Day Without You' is homage of the immense songwriting talent of Paul Williams, with whom Laurence has often collaborated over the years. Otis Redding's '(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay,' Dusty Springfield's 'I Only Want To Be With You' and Bobby Hebb's 'Sunny' round out the collection. There is also a bonus live track of LJ's composition 'Love At First Sight' that brings the album to a romantic conclusion.

    LISTEN TO MORGANA KING SING 'SUNNY"
    FROM 4 song EP as well as this lp

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgSPV0hthhw

    Bossa, samba, and the related world of Burt Bacharach come off best here, although once again the clever touches of Zito are sorely missed. "The Look of Love" pays the cost of Costa's hammy conducting, but "Walk on By" is just right. "Sunny" is an unexpected delight, maybe because Costa must have realized he couldn't out-schlock the hit single by Bobby Hebb. Instead, King is given a chance to use her ultra-relaxed and in-control phrasing to give the song a whole new feel. Some listeners may not even get past the first song, however, a monstrosity entitled "I Have Loved Me a Man." This is a good example of a song that gives off the scent of the wretched from its title alone. After ignoring the singer's cozy feel for swing for the entire album, "On the South Side of Chicago" comes off as a strained finale; Costa should have thought of this sooner, although it would have been a lot better if he hadn't shown up at all.

    Patriots' Brady: 'Sad to see Candlestick go'

    http://www.csnbayarea.com/49ers/patriots-brady-sad-see-candlestick-go?p=ya5nbcs&ocid=yahooLOOK: 4-year-old Tom Brady was at Candlestick Park for 'The Catch'By Ryan Wilson | CBSSports.comFebruary 13, 2015 12:17 pm ET
    Before Tom Brady became the face of the Patriots, a Super Bowl MVP, and one of the best quarterbacks to ever play in the NFL, he was just a kid growing up in Northern California who happened to be a huge Joe Montana fan.

    On Thursday, the folks running Brady's Facebook page, posted a picture of the future Hall of Famer taking in a game at Candlestick Park. But it wasn't just any game. It was the NFC Championship matchup against the Cowboys that was decided by The Catch.

    Candlestick Park will go out with a wrecking ball, not a bangBy Matier & Ross Updated 7:30 am, Friday, January 16, 2015 Plans for a pyrotechnic implosion of Candlestick Park have fizzled in favor of the wrecking ball with health fears and political pressure playing a big part in the decision.

    The 54-year-old stadium is being demolished to make way for a shopping center, hotel and housing complex. But an attention-grabbing plan to implode the Stick next month ran into stiff opposition from Golden Gate University’s Environmental Law and Justice Clinic and the Bayview Hill Neighborhood Association over fears about noise and the spread of toxic dust.

    New 60's Compilation with SUNNY on Disc 5

    DISC 5:
    1. Delilah - Tom Jones
    2. Sunny - Bobby Hebb

    4. Downtown - Petula Clark



    Playing Time:288 min.Distributor:n/aRecording Mode:StereoSPAR Code:n/a
    Album Notes
    This generous five-disc set collects 100 mostly original recordings of '60 hits, including songs by Elvis Presley, Sly & the Family Stone, the Righteous Brothers, and Tom Jones. Given that it spans so many different kinds of '60s sounds, including girl group pop, folk-rock, British Invasion hits, and psychedelic pop, the collection doesn't always offer the smoothest listening experience. Still, the sheer amount of hits here means that most '60s music fans will find more than a few things they'll enjoy. Highlights include the Troggs' "Wild Thing," Georgie Fame & the Blue Flames' "Yeh, Yeh," Thunderclap Newman's "Something in the Air," and the Spencer Davis Group's "Gimme Some Lovin'." ~ Heather Phares

    Billy Preston's on-fire organ solo on SUNNY

    Produced by Steve Douglas

    Sunny by Billy Preston  - instrumental with vocal intro - The Beatles had asked Bobby Hebb to play keyboards with them after the 1966 tour, but Bobby was more into the guitar at the time and suggested Billy Preston ...the rest is history... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ee0LtINHtfc

     http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Preston
    Relationship with the BeatlesPreston first met the Beatles as a 16-year-old in 1962, while part of Little Richard's touring band, when their manager Brian Epstein organized a Liverpool show, at which the Beatles opened. The Washington Post explained their subsequent meeting:
    “They'd hook up again in 1969, when the Beatles were about to break up while recording the last album they released, Let It Be (they would later record Abbey Road, which was released prior to Let It Be). George Harrison, a friend of Preston, had quit, walked out of the studio and gone to a Ray Charles concert in London, where Preston was playing organ. Harrison brought Preston back to the studio, where his keen musicianship and gregarious personality temporarily calmed the tension.[4]”Preston is one of several people referred to by commentators as the "Fifth Beatle". At one point during the "Get Back" sessions, John Lennon proposed the idea of having him join the band (to which Paul McCartney countered that it was difficult enough reaching agreements with four).[5] Preston played with the Beatles for several of the Get Back sessions, some of the material from which would later be culled to make the film Let it Be and its companion album. Preston also accompanied the band for its rooftop concert; the group's final public appearance.[4]

    Mark Ronson, who cut "Sunny" twice

    Uptown Funk January 13th from Mark Ronson

    Ronson previously tracked Bobby Hebb's "Sunny" twice
    ____________________________________________________________________

    "Uptown Funk" crams an entire wedding reception into four-and-a-half minutes, and the album containing the song looks to be as much fun as the single. Mark Ronson thinks so: "It's my best record, for sure," he tells Rolling Stone. As usual, the producer has recruited a star-studded cast of singers and side-hands. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon wrote the lyrics; Mystikal, Bruno Mars and Tame Impala's Kevin Park contribute vocals; and Stevie Wonder plays a little harmonica. "It's probably the peak musical highlight of my life," Ronson says of that last collaboration. "I'm fine if I never top it." R.S.

    1960's article
    GO MAGAZINEPage 5 Bobby hot on trail 

    Bobby Hebb is still searching ... for the pseudo performer who is traveling the country, using his name. "This cat has cost me at least $6000 during the last few weeks," Bobby told GO. 

    "That's the money I've lost in cancelled bookings because I've had to keep on the go looking for him. "He has done shows in my name in California, Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana. And every one of his shows had damaged my reputation. 

    "When I go on stage, the people in the audience expect me to play guitar, spoons and trum-pet as well as sing. They know that I put everything I have into my act. "But when the fake 'Mr. Hebb' does a show he sings a couple of songs and doesn't even sound like me. "He's been playing dates at $300 a night which is a lot less than I can command, and word has been getting round many promoters that 'Bobby Hebb' isn't all that great onstage. "That's why I'm determined to catch and stop this fellow. "All Mercury Records distributors and promotion men in America have been alerted to this, but he still manages -to get 
    Bobby Hebb with Ringo Starr during the last Beatles tour.  away with it. 

    "As soon as I hear he's been in a town, I fly there as quickly as I can. I talk with the show's promoter and the manager of the motel where he stayed. "They try to help as much as they can, but no one has been able to give me a definite lead. "I know he's driving a car, and if I could get the license plate number I'd catch him."
