CD Reviews

Another Sun classic now on CD
Andy G. Adow | London, UK | 07/09/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's nice to see more Sun records being made awailable on CD, after what seems like years. This album is famous for the classic "Radiaton Level" and other funky tracks like "Pure fire" as well as soul ballads: " I want to be, with you" tracks on a album which were probably aimed at a wider audience than the previous album SUNBURN. DESTINATION:SUN could be played non-stop from start to finish allowing the listener to hear a variety of songs covering a wide spectrum of styles. Song writing is shared between the main group members, and so a very well put together record is there to be enjoyed. Surprisingly, the songs still sound fresh even now after all these years; with the exception of "Everybody,Disco down", which is obviously now dated. Unfortunately, this was the last Sun record for lead guitarist Keith Cheetham, the writer of that well known and much loved classic: "Dance, do what you wanna do". Keith left Sun after this album, and I am not sure what happened to him. His other strong contribution here is the acoustic guitar floater: "Light of the universe", which with enough air play could have been a big hit, as its very catchy, and easy to sing along with. A very melodic song for a bright summers' day. A Fantastic track on here and a real gem is the song: "Deep rooted feeling (stand up)". A funky synth lead dancer with a wonderful jazzy piano solo and funky horns added to the mix, which really works well thanks to the excellent and skillful performance of the band, and the great vocal harmonies. This album should have followed the success of SUNBURN, but didn't quite propel the group further forward. Unlike their label mates Maze and frankie Beverely, who performed many great songs in addition to success from their live work. Its known that Sun were very big in Asia, particulary in Japan. I never saw them perform any concerts in London or the UK. So I guess its due to their Japan connection, that recently I was able to get a friend to send me a copy of SUNBURN on CD. Yes, its available on a Japanese re-issue, in a paper sleeve, just like the vinyl record. It still sounds fresh and memorable, and "Dance, do what you wanna do" is even more fantastic and likely to get stuck in repeat mode on the CD player. It truly is an amazing track that's just a rare timeless classic. One day people will wonder why it wasn't a huge hit.In the meantime, enjoy another equally fantastic CD from Sun. They don't make music like this anymore. Enjoy the vintage and sophisticated sounds of an undiscovered classic."
