  • Parliaments - what's good?

    I just finished reading this book about George Clinton called "In Their Own Words" and I was reminded of his earlier group the Parliaments with the plural "s".

    I have 3 of their 45s already that I like:

    Good Old Music/Time (Revilot)
    (I Wanna) Testify/I Can Feel The Ice Melting (Revilot)
    Look At What I Almost Missed/What You Been Growing (Revilot)

    I was wondering if any of their other 45s from the 60s were any good? Comments/opinions anyone? Having a look at eBay it seems like there are lot more English sellers of Parliaments 45s than American ones. Perhaps because they were considered Northern Soul?

    Here's a list of their other releases from the 60s:

    Heart Trouble (That Was) My Girl (Golden World) 1965
    All Your Goodies Are Gone/Don't Be Sore At Me (Revilot) 1967
    Little Man/Goose (Revilot) 1967
    A New Day Begins/I'll Wait (Revilot & Atco) 1968/69

    the Parliaments are great
    - love 'Heart Trouble' - big old northern sound
    - 'Don't Be Sore At Me' also has a good pounding northern beat, a bit poppy though
    - 'A New Day Begins' is an absolute killer for me - it's all in the backing music - kinda psych/freakbeaty take on soul - remarkably like The [Scottish] Poets - cheap as fries too, as they say your side of the pond
