Sunny and the Sunliners (originally Sunny and the Sunglows) were a group of chicanos from San Antonio, featuring lead singer Sunny Ozuna and his fellow students from Burbank Vocational School. They were mainly active from 1959-1966, with lots of singles and several albums, bowing out with a final LP in 1977. (The band name may be a reference to the slick Ford Sunliner convertibles, current in the 50s.)
Ichiban listeners know this brilliant, rockin' number, with Tex-Mex and soul/R&B influences.
No One Else Will Do
Which leaves the burning question : what else did they have ? Friends, I just listened to a hundred of their songs on YouTube, and while there is some solid work, there seems to be no other comparable track. Impossible to say where this aberration came from.
The band's output seems to fall into several categories. Many songs are what I will call – out of my ignorance – "mariachi" style. In any case, they sound like this.
De Mi Nada Mas
Then there are some with a Tex-Mex border sound, like their San Antonio neighbors the Sir Douglas Quintet.
Sufriendo Y Penando
Others are slow ballads.
Talk to Me (Little Willie John cover, charted #11 pop, #12 R&B)
Think it Over
Some songs are more soul-oriented.
Oop Oop Pidoo [sic]
Here, they put the brass section to work.
Hip Huggin Mini
If anybody knows of anything else in their repertoire like No One Else Will Do, call me collect !!!
Stop press !!! Bazooka Joe sez check this one out. Thanks, Joe !
