Detroit band the Sunday Funnies were comprised of vocalist Richard Fidge, guitarist Ronald Aitken, keyboardist Richard Kosinski, and drummer Richard Mitchell, releasing in 1970 the single "Heavy Music" / "Path Of Freedom" issued on the local Hideout label.
Their excellent debut album, produced by infamous Andrew Oldham (an early The Rolling Stones´ manager) and released in 1971 on Motown´s Rare Earth label. This brilliantly recorded, very melodic, soft-progressive album consisted of very memorable and cleverly-arranged, stylish songs based on rich and strong Hammond organ sounds and attractive vocal parts. Some tracks are just unbelievably beautiful! Stylistically this record is not far away from 1967-68 Procol Harum era and early Traffic.
Richard Kosinski also contributed to albums by Bonnie Raitt, The Temptations, the Four Tops and Aretha Franklin. He was a member of the soft rock ensemble Wha-Koo from 1977-1979.
