Two classic Roy Ayers productions back to back on a replica of the original Blue Thumb DJ promo release from 1977.
"Everybody Loves the Sunshine" is the quintessential summer track that has been sampled numerous times by hip hop artists such as Brand Nubian, P.M. Dawn, Common, Masta Ace, Mos Def and others as well as by R&B singer Mary J. Blige.
The Roy Ayers version is the better known track and is his signature tune. The legendary Jazz-Funk pioneer walked tall at Polydor Records in the 1970’s for whom he produced a number of seminal albums.
Roy Ayers Music Productions were a side project for Roy Ayers. He was not a member, though he did write and produce songs on the group’s debut album Come Into Knowledge (1977) on which this version the track was released.
