The album contains 11 Webb originals, mostly written for Thelma, but a few had already been recorded by other artists. Soul fans will recognize 'This Is Your Life,' which was revamped in 1977 by Norman Connors with Eleanore Mills on lead vocals. This first ever UK CD issue contains six bonus tracks of songs later released as singles during 1970 including her debut pop chart entry with a Soul-infused cover of Laura Nyro's 'Save The Country' plus two further singles. Passion. 2010.

This is Thelma Houston at her best! ...the material is top-shelf! I have a vinyl copy and it's easily
one of the most treasured albums in my vast collection. It's a wonder broadway didn't come knocking. Alas, I've read numerous
accounts of why it didn't take off from Dunhill not knowing how
to promote a black female singer to their reluctance to let Jimmy Webb cover his own work with the label and lost interest. Whatever the case there's not a loser in the bunch and sooo many big recording artists covered these tunes shortly after it's release. None came close to the magic that Thelma created. She belted, she growled, she carressed, these lyrics. And with Jimmy's great arrangements it just clicked! What kills me is how this album is mostly always forgotten when Jimmy's career is talked about in favor of his more bigger hits like Galveston with Glen Campbell or MacArthur Park with Richard Harris. Even with something as weird as "Pocketful of Keys" you can't find a better version. Easily i'd put this up there
with Dusty IN Memphis and Aretha's I Never Loved A Man (The Way
I Love You) albums. Peace

"Sunshower" is one of those works that is complete and satisfying. Like a fine art painting, every song fits together into this album.
Thelma Houston was the perfect choice for the vocalist. She breathes life and vision into every number.
Jimmy Webb is best known for his work with Glen Campbell and Richard Harris. Arranged and produced by Jimmy Webb, this is his finest work. Likewise for Thelma Houston who holds nothing back. She is in her finest form on every song.
The only dim spot in this album is that it never received the legitimate recognition that it deserved. Recorded as an lp in 1969, it is now available in limited quantities as an import from Japan. The sound of the CD is done immaculately well, resulting better than the original album.
Well worth waiting for, highly recommended for those who love an accomplished R&B female vocalist accompanied by rich arrangements.

I'll be brief and general since prior reviews are detailed by song. I married in 1969 and my late husband and I searched the

web and phoned music stores across the country for more than

two decades for the cd to no avail...the record being old and scratched. I saw Thelma on tv recently and decided to check for Sunshower again. Who thought to check Japan? :-)

Music being all important to me for 58 years, it's difficult to

say it's my favorite album, but I did think to say it which proves how great it is and how very much it means to me. I see

each cut as a joyous vignette from Jimmy Webb and Thelma.

I pray my husband, Louie, who has been in heaven for seven years on Tuesday, August 9th, is listening with me.

"Sunshower" is the most incredible album legendary composer Jimmy Webb ever has written, arranged and produced to date in his long brilliant career...he eloquently states on original album sleeve "I hurry to present Thelma...the most prodigious talent I have ever encountered", Miss Thelma Houston more than lives up to this proclamation by giving stunning & soulful vocal performances of rare beauty and tremendous emotional depth. Never a more brilliant marriage of artist & material, this stunning work for hard-core music lovers is an example of singing at its very finest, thankfully with this beautifully remastered release sound mix now is perfection. Upon original release sadly with zero radio support, yet by word of mouth word spreading like wildfire that Thelma Houston possessed THE ultimate voice, it became clear this remarkable talent was not to be missed...quickly upon first spin obtained multiple copies so that a fresh copy would always be around to savor & enjoy the ultimate vocal masterpiece! "Everybody Gets to Go to the Moon" is stirring & magnificent, hauntingly beautiful "To Make It Easier on You" features a memorable vocal that is soul-deep and magical. Many have recorded wonderful versions of "Didn't We", this definitive version is the one featuring a super-fine vocal that goes to the core of this great song, turning it inside out in a way that is stunning & unforgettable. "Mixed-Up Girl" is a hair-raising riveting vocal, Thelma pleading with passionate & heartbreaking longing that it is breathtaking to experience and by the time one gets to the glorious "Someone is Standing Outside", clearly becomes obvious there are no filler songs in this solid collection of timeless & classic performances!Read more ›

"Sunshower" has got to be one of the greatest vocal triumphs ever captured in a recording studio and now mixed to perfection for all lovers of great singers to savor and enjoy for all time.
Thelma Houston possesses a stunning voice of complete beauty with passion & soul behind this glorious gift awesome to behold...the lady can sing anything and involve the listener in a way completely engrossing ultimately creating an magnificent magical musical experience beyond compare...composing legend Jimmy Webb knew he heard a voice so incredible that he was inspired to write a collection of classics and what Thelma & Jimmy accomplished in studio is this now legendary collection that would have been huge if given airplay but nevertheless has become a highly regarded musical treasure and well known vocal masterpiece.
Pointless to go in to each classic gem as they await the lucky individual listener to marvel over & dive in and have a musical feast unlike any other...all performances are fine and tremendous and the longing plea in "This Is Your Life" & "If The Was The Last Song" so profoundly moving as are all performances and bonus tracks in this masterful collection. "Jumpin'Jack Flash" turned inside out with a brilliant performance so riveting it must have stunned Mick Jaggar and Thelma shines in Laura Nyro's "Save The Country" making both classic songs her own.
Bravo to Thelma Houston & Jimmy Webb for making a satisfying life changing classic to savor & enjoy for all time and seasons of life...
