Southern California soft-pop quintet the Sunshine Company comprised singer Mary Nance, singer/guitarist Maury Manseau, guitarist/violinist Douglas Mark, bassist Larry Sims and drummer Merle Bregante. Signing to Imperial Records, in the fall of 1967 the group issued its debut LP Happy Is the Sunshine Company, scoring their lone Top 40 hit with the single "Back on the Street Again." The album also generated the minor hit "Happy," although with their self-titled sophomore effort the Sunshine Company's commercial momentum dissipated, and in the wake of their third LP, 1968's Sunshine and Shadows, the group disbanded (although rumors of a completed but unreleased fourth effort, supposedly titled Think, continue to circulate). Sims and Bregante later recorded with the duo of Kenny Loggins and Jim Messina. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
