Customer Reviews


This is a review of the song SUNSHINE only, as I have not (yet) purchased the other 3 songs on the EP. SUNSHINE was written by Jaynett member Zelma Sanders, who also wrote Sally Go 'Round the Roses, Peepin' in & out the Windows, and other songs for the Jaynetts and also for The Hearts. SUNSHINE is as experimental as Sally Go "Round but is a lot more laid back. The meter varies; there are no rhymes; and the chord changes are fairly complex for 1963.

Just as The Chantels broke through with MAYBE and LOOK IN MY EYES, so did the Jaynetts with SUNSHINE and Sally Go 'Round the Roses. I recommend SUNSHINE, SALLY, and PEEPIN' IN & OUT THE WINDOWS (a very aggressive song, almost like a so-called "girl group" version of the early Doors, who came along 3 years later).
At the very least, you might wish to sample SUNSHINE once or twice before dismissing it.

Zell Sanders co-wrote the song with Lona Stevens, who later married...
