Sometimes there was no accounting for Mitch Ryder’s choice of material especially since he released some of the best rock singles of the 1960s. Case in point was his release of the old country song, “You Are My Sunshine,” as a single. Released during October of 1967, it stalled at number 88 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.
It was not a total disaster as he tried real hard and I mean real hard. He had a voice that could cover a lot of territory but sometimes it all comes back to the choice of material.
