Record Hunter: Randy & the Radiants "My Way of Thinking" (Sun, USA, 1965)

I played this single when I was DJing last week and someone came over to see what it was. He was very surprised to see that it was on Sun Records. But, of course, while Sun is famous for its 1950s rockabilly records, including early Elvis Presley and Carl Perkins, plus Johnny Cash and the early blues records that Sam Phillips put out, the label carried on going through to the late 1960s. And while the label's founder wasn't particularly a follower of trends after that initial explosion of rock'n'roll in the mid-1950s, his son Knox found this young band and got them signed to the label for a couple of 45s, this one being a highlight of Sun's twilight years.
