Stumblebunny –Tonite




Stumblebunny -4 track EP –Slip-Shod Records (1977 US)

Tonite is simply a top draw Power Pop tune. While less glossy than the later Mercury version produced by Richard Gottehrer, it’s a fine rockin’ performance and sounds like The Raspberries or Dwight Twilley if they had recorded for Titan (well to these ears anyway…)

Wot - no sleeve? I'll send you a scan - it's very cool and home-made-y.

And you're right, 'Tonite' is a lost pop classic in the same sad box as the Dirty Angels and Reddy Teddy.

Hey Powerpop,

I have one for sale at my website, though it's not with the sleeve the duck rightly says is pretty nice.

Hi Collin
Please email me a scan and I'll upload it. I have the LP coming to me in the next few days...

Written and produced by Chris Robinson the label says, in 1977. (btw- I just googled a nice site: http://www.chrisrobison.net)
But hey, I have an equally beatiful version of this same song by Dutch soul singer Tony Sherman, and that one is from 1974. How is that possible, what info do I miss here, who did the original then ?

This is just a fantastic record. It combines the swagger of the Stones at their best (on Exile On Main Street) with a fantastic pop hook. Finding this really made my day.

That's what it's all about!
