The One Who’s Hurting Is You b/w Should I Take You Home (Keyloc Version)
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.
