Bobby Hebb sang backup on Bo Diddley's "Diddley Daddy" On November 23, 1963, the day after John F. Kennedy's assassination, Bobby Hebb's brother, Harold, was killed in a knife fight outside a Nashville nightclub. Hebb was devastated by both events and sought comfort in songwriting. Though many claim that the song he wrote after both tragedies was the optimistic "Sunny", Hebb himself stated otherwise

The voice and pen that crafted the multi-format standard Sunny took four years to create as exquisite an album of adult contemporary R&B as you’ll find. This was recorded a full year before Lou Rawls would hit with the Bobby Hebb/Sandy Baron composition A Natural Man, three years before Barry White would begin his reign of chart success, and two years before the O’Jays would help bring the Gamble and Huff sound to the masses. Love Games may have been Bobby Hebb’s personal outpouring of grief over his divorce, but the resulting pearl from this intense period is an album masterpiece containing stunning adult contemporary R&B.
