…The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine at Joe’s Pub, NYC:
This intimate set was a showcase for the American version of Storyteller, which was due for release in the USA at that time. A whole host of US fans were able to attend, which is very lucky for everyone else, resulting in plenty of videos of the set.

The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine was written by Bob Gaudio and and Bob Crewe for Franki Valli but the song wasn’t a hit until recorded by The Walker Brothers in 1966:
