Underground Sunshine

Montello, Wisconsin-based psychedelic pop quartet Underground Sunlight comprised singer/guitarist Chris Connors (aka John Dahlberg), keyboardist Jane Small, German-born Bert Koelbl on bass, and his sibling Frank on drums. In middle-1969, the group have scored a left-field Billboard Best 40 hit using their debut one, a cover from the Beatles’ “Birthday”; that August 2, Underground Sunlight also performed the melody on television’s American Bandstand. Their debut LP, Allow There End up being Light, soon implemented, although the one “Don’t Shut Me Out” dropped just shy from the Sizzling 100 — the music was compiled by smooth pop maestro David Gates, years later on leading to fake gossips that Underground Sunlight was actually a precursor to Gates’ personal band, Breads. In 1970 Underground Sunlight resurfaced with “Nine to Five (Ain’t My Handbag),” which skipped the charts totally; when their reading of “Jesus IS MERELY Alright” fulfilled the same destiny, the group dissolved.
