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. The melody is almost like a lullaby.
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.
