||Another stone classic 45 from the legendary Sunny & the Sunliners. Following up on the
compilation project and full length reissues we have done, we keep on pressing up some
must-haves from his amazing catalog of music. Diehard fans will love to see this one.
The A Side is “The One Who’s Hurting Is You” which was never on an album and the original
45 is pretty tough to find, and pretty expensive when you do, to put it mildly… A killer tune that
starts out with Rudy Palacios signature guitar riff, dropping into the haunting back ground
vocals and met with Sunny’s lead riding the line between gruff and sweet. Sunny lays down
the law and tells it as fact, “there’s one thing that’s for certain, I won’t be doing the hurting. The
one who’s hurting is you….”
The B Side, another non album cut, and one of the hardest 45s from Sunny to come across,
is the original recording of “Should I Take You Home”. Originally released on Sunny’s Key-Loc
label, this is the first version, later in life they remixed it to license it to another label making it
brighter and more punchy. This is the lo-fi, the gritty, the original mix, one we are sure fans are
going to be happy to finally get a copy of. Another killer two-sider,
another Big Crown Sureshot
Side B is their version of the Billy Stewart classic Cross My Heart, a tune even some of the most
diehard Sunny fans seem to have not known existed prior to the Mr Brown Eyed Soul compilation.
A sweet soul classic recently made popular again via Jay Electronica’s Just Blaze produced
underground hit Exhibit C, which sampled the Stewart version. Collector’s and music lovers alike
will be happy to see this song available on 7” format for the first time ever.
