personally i think sunshine blows donna away. they dont have the same role in the band at all but id say sunshines voice is just must more pleasing to the ear.

Donna has and had in her prime a sweet fine voice. When her and M. Maldaur used to sing with Jerry in JGB there voices would intertwine in songs such as "Knockin On Heaven Door" check out the Pure Jerrys JGB releases from The Warner Theatre in 78' Donna voice was a perfect match with Jerry's in the day. There was none better. And seeing her sing with JGB last summer And DSO she still has a great Voice! Sunshine has a nice Voice also but as far as better than Donna'?

Donna, good enough for Jerry and Elvis, good enough for me. There is nothing like Donna backing Bobby on Looks Like Rain.

I love Donna's yelping screach in the playin' in the band reprise when she really lets it out, and I enjoy her harmonies with Jerry and Bobby in the '76-'78 era, mostly '77 has some really pretty vocals from Donna. But I seriously think Sunshine is a MUCH better professional vocalist, powerful and beautiful tones from her voice is very impressive.

^^^^^ what he said!

personally, i really dislike early donna.
The Sailor, coming out again, the lady fairly leapt at him.
That's how it stands today. You decide if he was wise.

That's the only time I don't like Donna...when she's doing her horrible Joplin half-shot impersonation in Playing in the Band. I still sometimes feel embarrassment when I hear it.

Donna all the way, but I never had a problem with her in the first place (other than the above). I don't really know enough about Sunshine's capabilities to fairly compare the two.
You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?

and by "love" i mean, cringe in utter pain!! but i've actually grown to really dig it when she let's it out...when it doesn't happen like on Dick's Picks vol. 14 epic version (12/2/73) I'm like...where is it?!?
