Get Down b/w Cross My Heart
Following the success of the extensive reissue project that we did with Sunny & The Sunliners 2017’s Mr. Brown Eyed Soul compilation, Smile Now, Cry Later and Missing Link full length reissues, and 2018’s reissue of Little Brown Eyed Soul, we bring you another must have 7 inch offering from his catalogue.
Side A is Sunny’s cover of “Get Down,” one of the rarest and hardest tunes from his extensive discography. Only appearing on a Key Loc 45 and very rarely showing up in decent condition, if at all, it lives mostly on funk collector’s want lists. Although they have covered James Brown, Hugh Masekela, and The Meters, this is commonly agreed to be the funkiest thing they’ve ever cut.
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 inch format for the first time ever.
