RICHARD T. BEAR - SUNSHINE HOTEL
Where is Sunshine Hotel? That's what I wanna know!! Never has a song about a brothel sounded so damn funky .. this track is a sure fire dancefloor filler, I've seen it do the job on many occassions.
Also, who the hell is Richard T. Bear? He's the big bearded, plaid shirt wearing dude who's singing about his love of the "Sunshine Hotel" & how you can just walk on in .. genius.
I thought this would be a great tongue in cheek record to kick the week off, a serious groove indeed, it seems to me that this was probably Richard's biggest & most well known record & it was taken off his only LP "Red, Hot & Blue" released in 1979. He was responsible for producing Inga Rumpf's track "Love potion no.9" in 1979 also.
"Sunshine Hotel .. Just come on in, no need to ring the bell"
