THE SUNSHINE COMPANY - BLUE MAY



THE SUNSHINE COMPANY - "Happy" / "Blue May" (Imperial IM-6351) June 1967

I've recently highlighted Hollywood group The Sunshine Company on my blog choosing a couple of obscure album cuts that weren't used as single sides. So I thought it a good idea to post their first single from mid 1967.

"Happy" was given A-Side status and it delivered them an instant summer of love hippie hit.
Also of interest is their supreme flip "Blue May" written by their lead vocalist Maury Manseau. It's a classic jangle folk-pop tune with a wonderful melody and exquisite harmonies.
Listen out for their Byrds homage mid way through the song when they throw their "The World Turns All Around Her" in the mix.

"Blue May" was easily good enough for a single in it's own right but was sadly hidden away on the other side of "Happy"
