Jonathan Edwards (born July 28, 1946) is an American singer-songwriter and musician best known for his 1971 hit single “Sunshine”

1976 found Edwards with a new label, new backing musicians, and a new producer, the then very hot Brian Ahern. Unfortunately, change is not always a good thing. The songs and the band are both very good, but the intimate feel of the early albums is missing here and that was one of the things that always made Edwards’ records so appealing. That lack of intimacy seems to fall on the producer’s shoulders and should not be held against the artist. Despite the flaws in production, this is still a fine collection of songs and performances from a regrettably overlooked artist.
