SONG OF THE DAY Scacy & Sound Service – Sunshine Pt. 1

Are you ready for some mighty funk? I surely hope so because today’s bodacious blast of bold r’n’b will shake you to the bone!  Reissued via Germany’s Tramp Records last month,  Sunshine Pt. 1 was originally released in 1972.

Performed by Irving ‘Scacy’ Haywood and the Sound Service, Sunshine was written by the band’s organist and recorded at Track Recorders in Silver Spring, Maryland in 1972.  Irving ‘Scacy’ Haywood had been singing ever since the age of just 13 years old and emerged in 1961 as part of a group called The Vells.  That same year, after winning a talent show contest, the band’s prize took them to the Howard theatre where they soon found themselves performing alongside the likes of Marv Johnson, The Flamingos, The Cadillacs, Billy Blann, Etta Jones and Mike Gram, M C.!

It wasn’t until the early 1970’s that Irving changed his newly formed band’s name to Scacy & the Sound Service and the rest as they say…… Check out today’s glorious hunk of funk above and order your copy of this newly reissued 45 at Tramp Records here.
