45s for a February Date-Night

by Administrator 15. February 2021 13:32

We are getting hot and steamy during this once in a lifetime 2021 month of love with our list of 45s. With restaurants, bars, and other typical places made for a good date night limited or perhaps even closed, this year is perfect for a date-night at home listening to great 45s. I think we say it every month, but this month’s list of 45s might be the best yet.

 

Guys & Dolls: Ain’t It A Shame / Pretty, Pretty, Baby



 

Label: Astrophe 37114. Released 1968.

A Side: Ain’t It A Shame

B Side: Pretty, Pretty, Baby

 

This 45 truly hits the spot. From blues-infused guitar licks, mellow piano chord progressions, powerhouse vocals, and some unique instruments such as the flute - Guys & Dolls covers it all. How this group isn’t more popular we aren’t sure, but you’ve got to check this one out!

Julie Gibson & The Anglows: I Got News For You / Same

The A side of Julie Gibson & The Anglows’ “I Got News For You” is one of those tracks that’ll be stuck in your head playing over and over again and for good reason.

Gigi & The Charmaines: Poor Unfortunate Me / Brazil



 

Label: Columbia 44246 (Promo Copy). Released 1967.

A Side: Poor Unfortunate Me

B Side: Brazil

 

We are a bit biased with this 45 given Gigi & The Charmaines are based out of our hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. This all female vocal trio is often labeled “sassy as The Supremes and The Marvelettes”. Listen to the 45 using the link below to find out why. It wouldn’t be a complete Parker’s Records list of 45s without including a good shuffle groove so here it is.

New Year, New Ear

by Administrator 14. January 2021 14:57

What better way to start off the New Year than with some new music? Considering 2020 is finally behind us, I think we all deserve to treat ourselves to a new 45 or two. We are bringing you a nice mix of tempos to begin 2021 as the past year has affected us all a little differently. Without further ado, please welcome Lenny Miles, the Marvels, and Catherine Miller. 


 

Lenny Miles: Invisible / Don’t Believe Him Donna



 

Label: Scepter 1212. Released 1960.

Label Owner: Florence Greenberg, 1674 Broadway, New York, NY. 1650 Broadway, New York, NY. (1958-1975)

A Side: Invisible

B Side: Don’t Believe Him Donna

 

Lenny Miles hailed from Fort Worth, Texas and was on track for a successful music career with his minor hit, “Don’t Believe Him Donna” before dying at the young age of 27. Although the age 27 usually refers to the infamous 27 Club, Lenny’s death preceded this by many years. The B side of this 45 is truly a beautiful song and showcases the potential of Lenny Miles at such a young age. Check it out using the link below!

Marvels: Forget About The Mess Pt. 1 / Pt. 2



 

 

Label: Sensation 007. Released 1969.

Label Location: Dearborn, MI (1969-1970)

A Side: Forget About The Mess P. 1

B Side: Pt. 2

 

We are picking up the pace with this Marvels’ 45 hailing out of Dearborn, Michigan in 1969. Tons of great music was born in Michigan from Motown to Rock and this 45 is no exception. The drums and bass really holds the groove (as it should) on both the A and B side. Side B includes a ripping saxophone solo that you’ll surely be spinning on repeat.

Catherine Miller: Don’t Waste Your Time Girl  / Life Is Like A Checkerboard



 

Label: Tyson 100. Released 1975.

Label Owner: Peter Brown & Patrick Adams. 976 Prospect Ave, Bronx, NY. 2143 Seventh Ave, New York, NY. (1975-1980)

A Side: Don’t Waste Your Time Girl

B Side: Life Is Like A Checkerboard Don’t Waste Your Time Girl

 

There is one thing I will never get sick of hearing and that’s the tastiest drum beat of all time - the shuffle. If you like head bobbing drum grooves, funky guitar and piano runs, and Catherine Miller’s voice, you can’t go wrong with this 45. Although manufacturers don’t typically install record players in cars, this is a real window-down cruising type of 45 and would be the first thing I played! Listen for yourself down below.

December Cheer for Your Ears

by Administrator 15. December 2020 12:35

For most, this December is a little colder than previous years as we are forced to distance ourselves from one another and do things a little differently. If there’s been one thing in my life I can count on again and again to bring a little cheer into my day, it’s music, and Parkers Records & Comics is here to help. Whether you need a last minute gift or something to keep you company at home this Winter, check out our final list of 45s for this once in a lifetime 2020 year.

 

Erlene & Her Girlfriends: My Dada Say / A Guy Is A Guy



 

Label: Old Town 1150. Released 1963.

Label Owner: Hy Weiss & Sam Weiss. 165 East 125th St. New York, NY. 701 Seventh Ave., New York, NY. 1697 Broadway, New York, NY. 767 Tenth Ave., New York, NY. (1953-1978)

A Side: My Dada Say

B Side: A Guy Is A Guy

 

Erlene & Her Girlfriends brought a unique style to the music scene with the release of this 45. “My Dada Say” begins with a short story before jumping into the track. The vocals are sung in the 3rd person from the perspective of the narrators “Dada”. Erlene & Her Girlfriends isn’t for the faint of heart and the sensitive men in the world. The girls are brutally honest about the men they’ve experienced in this one!

Essex: Moonlight, Music And You / The Eagle



 

Label: Bang 537. Released 1966.

Label Owner: Bert Burns. 1659 Broadway, New York, NY. 51 West 51st St., New York, NY. (1965-1982)

A Side: Moonlight, Music And You

B Side: The Eagle

 

We have a theme for you this week… Songs that start out with a narration before jumping into the track. This Essex 45 takes a more positive perspective on love compared to the 45 from Erlene & Her Girlfriends. Side B uses the metaphor of America’s emblem, the eagle. And no, it’s not Steve Miller’s “Fly like an Eagle”. Essex plays with great energy on side B, check it out!

Explosions: Gee Baby / Try Again


 

Label: Burton 101. Released 1965.

Label Address: 9206 Cordell Mews St., LA. 69. Ca.

A Side: Gee Baby

B Side: Try Again

 

Explosive! That’s how I would describe the first hit on this 45. Gee Baby is going to reel you in from beat one. Keep listening and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by a ripping harp solo. Although the A side of this track uses a standard blues progression, there’s something different about this track worth checking out. Listen using the link below!

All November Nite Long

by Administrator 12. November 2020 11:41

November 2020 is here already. That means we have one more month before the new year. This time of year always seems to put people in a certain mood. It gets dark much earlier, meaning the days are shorter and the nights are longer, and the weather is getting cooler putting a chill in the air. This often leads to people having more time to themselves, leading to some self-reflection. This will be a common theme throughout this month’s list of 45s.

 

Jimmy Radcliffe: Moment of Weakness / Through A Long and Sleepless Night



 

Label: Musicor 1033. Released 1963.

Label Owner: A division of Talmadge Productions. 1960-1978.

A Side: Moment of Weakness

B Side: Through A Long and Sleepless Night

 

No one is perfect and neither is Jimmy Radcliffe as he sings about a moment of weakness and unfaithfulness. The track almost makes you feel like you are in the room with him listening to his confession. Flip the 45 over, and you’ll forgive Jimmy for his sins and forget about any mistakes he may have made in his previous life as he serenades you with “Through A Long and Sleepless Night”. This might be the bedtime lullaby I needed in my life all this time.

Relations: When We Get the Word / All Nite Long



 

Label: Michele 506.

Label Owner: Carl Edison. 200 East 26th St, New York, NY. 1650 Broadway, New York, NY. 1962-1964.

A Side: When We Get the Word

B Side: All Nite Long

 

We’ve got a nice collection of classic sounds and rhythms for you with this 45. Take a step back in time, open your closet, and dig for your old dancing shoes. Prepare yourself for some powerful vocals and classic drum rhythms you’ve all heard before. You’ll surely be dancing “All Nite Long” to the sounds of this 45.

Revolons: Dry Your Eyes / She’ll Come to Me



 

Label: Capitol 4739. Released 1962. Label created in 1949.

A Side: Dry Your Eyes

B Side: She’ll Come to Me

 

After a long night of reflecting or deep conversation with someone significant, put on this 45 from the Revolons and wipe away those tears. Sometimes we have to pull ourselves up by our own boot straps and this might just be the 45 you need to do it. A little reminder like “Dry Your Eyes” never hurt anyone!

We are kicking things off with a rather festive artist title, Witches and the Warlock. There are few things better in this world than a solid drum fill and we are starting you off with just that. The A side “What Will I do Now” keeps a steady groove while the B side “Which Way Did He Go” is a real swinger. You can expect a strong female vocal performance on both sides of this 45.

Halloween is the one night of the year modern society allows people to dress up and be whoever they want.

Do You Remember, Dancing in September?

by Administrator 14. September 2020 14:10

You are in for a treat this fine September 2020. This year has been filled with plenty of unpredictable ups and downs, but you can count on this selection of 45s from Parker’s Records to be everything you can imagine. There’s a diverse group of tracks included in this month’s compilation, everything from shuffle grooves and funk to national anthems and R&B. Check it out!

 

Count Rockin Sidney: Bury the Hatchet / Back Door Man


 

Label: Bold 1006. Released 1972.

Label Owner: Sidney J. Simien. 2112 Elder, Lake Charles, LA (1969-1976)

A Side: Bury the Hatches

B Side: Back Door Man

 

Given Count Rockin Sidney was an African American R&B singer during the 50s, 60s, and 70s you can bet the Civil Rights Movement influenced his music. It’s likely that “Bury the Hatchet” was in reference to ending the racial turmoil experienced throughout the United States during this time. During the 17th century, Native Americans would bury an actual hatchet as a sign of peace at the end of a fight and this is probably where Sidney got his inspiration for this track. Side A of this 45 starts out with a native anthem you have heard before and jumps into a groove rhythm. It’s really a great piece of work and worth checking out!

Detroit Jr.: Young Blood / Secret Love


 

Label: Tip-Top 2015. Released 1967.

Label Owner: Charles Colbert Sr & Charles Colbert Jr. 8956 South Wallace, Chicago, IL (1962-1967)

A Side: Young Blood

B Side: Secret Love

 

If this ain’t groovy, I don’t know what is. Detroit Junior, otherwise known as Emery Williams Jr. is the heart and soul behind this 45. Everything lines up perfectly in “Young Blood”. Listen closely to the catchy guitar rift played throughout the track and the way the bass and drums move with one another. I can guarantee you won’t be listening to this cut just once!

Caprells: What You Need Baby / Dotty’s Party



 

Label: Bano 102. Released 1976.

Label Owner: 1970-1978

A Side: What You Need Baby

B Side: Dotty’s Party

 

And last but not least, we’ve got a love makin’ shuffle track for you so get your sexy pants out. This group is founded by a family out of Pittsburgh and one you won’t forget! This 45 is a straight up groove-machine. Both the A side and B side will have you in the right mood. Check it out using the link below and let us know what you think!

August 2020 45s: Ray, Radiants, and Raymond

by Administrator 20. August 2020 11:05

This year is flying by. Putting on a good record and turning everything else off is one thing that has helped me slow things down over this past year. We have 45s from Chuck Ray, Radiants, and Ray Raymond. There seems to be a theme with the letters “R-A” this week doesn't there? Coincidence or completely random? You’ll have to listen to this week’s tracks to find out!


 

Chuck Ray: Baby Please Don’t Go / There Ain’t A Thing You Can Do



 

Label: Buddha 207. Released 1970.

Label Owner: Niel Bogart, Art Kass and Allen Klien. 810 Seventh Ave., New York, N.Y. (1967-1982)

A Side: Please Don’t Go

B Side: There Ain’t A Thing You Can Do

 

You won’t be disappointed with this 45 from Chuck Ray. Feel good vibes, great grooves, soulful vocals, and some high energy percussion can be heard throughout these two tracks. Whether you are looking for a romantic track to set the mood or just looking for some easy listening, we have you covered.“Baby Please Don’t Go” and “There Ain’t A Thing You Can Do” compliment each other perfectly. Moderate tempos, fantastic verse and chorus changes, and so much more! Check it out using the link below.

Radiants: Voice Your Choice / If I Had Only You



 

Label: Chess 1904. Released 1964.

Label Owner: Len and Phil Chess. 5249 Cottage Grove ave, Chicago, Ill; 750 East 4th St. Chicago, Ill; 4750 S. Cottage Grove Ave, Chicago, Ill; 2120 S. Michigan Ave. Chicago, Ill; 320 East Twenty First St. Chicago, Ill. (1950-1976.)

A Side: Voice Your Choice

B Side: If I Had Only You

 

Radiants was a fairly short lived group hailing from Chicago, Illinois. Having earned moderate success throughout the 1960s, Chess records eventually dropped them in the late 60s. However, this particular 45 was Radiant’s biggest hit, and although they weren’t the most popular group, their music is still one of our favorites here at Parkers Records and Comics. Popular and famous isn’t always the perfect formula for a great band, and Radiant is no exception to this premise.

Ray Raymond: It Breaks My Heart / She’s Alright



 

Label: Tuff 409. Released 1966.

Label Owner: Abner Spector, Chuck Fly, and Zelma (Zell) Sanders. 7758 Tremont St. Indianapolis, IN; 1650 Broadway New York, NY. (1959-1967)

A Side: It Breaks My Heart

B Side: She’s Alright

 

Considering how fast this year is moving by, we thought we’d slow things down to end this month’s list of 45s. If you are a piano enthusiast, this 45 from Ray Raymond will likely be right up your alley. There’s one thing in life I know to always be true - a shuffle groove never disappoints. “She’s Alright” starts with a nice piano and bass melody and then jumps right into a shuffle.

3 Hot 45s for July 2020

by Administrator 24. July 2020 11:19

We’ve got some heat for you this month! 45s from the Artistics, Wayne Anthony, and Jerry Ann & the Las Vegas Cats should put you in the summer mood. We are touching all ends of the spectrum this month by sharing with you some awesome soul, swing, shuffle, and surfer rock 45s. Surely you’ll find something you enjoy from this month’s list of 45s available right here at Parkers Records and Comics.


Artistics: In Another Man’s Arms / Patty Cake


 

Label: Okeh 7217. Promo Copy. Released 1965.

Label Owner: Otto Heinman. 1473 Barnham Ave. Bridgeport, CT. & 799 Seventh Ave., New York, NY (1951-1970)

A Side: In Another Man’s Arms

B Side: Patty Cake

 

You are likely familiar with one of the producers behind this 45, Curtis Mayfield. I don’t know about you, but anytime I come across a track associated with Curtis Mayfield I always check it out – and this 45 is no exception. The A side, “In Another Man’s Arms”, has a classic straight soul groove that you’ve heard many times before, however, the B side “Patty Cake”, mixes things up with some swing to get you clapping and foot stomping.

Wayne Anthony: G for Girls / Out of Sight, Out of Mind



 

Label: Roulette 4694. Promo copy. Released1966.

Label Owner: George Goldner replaced by Luigi Creatore, Morris Gerlach, Joe Kolsky, Morris Levy, Hugo Peretti, Anthony Soprano. 1650 Broadway, New York, N.Y., 220 West 42nd St, New York, NY, 659 Tenth Ave, New York, NY (1957-1981).

A Side: G for Girls

B Side: Out of Sight, Out of Mind

 

So far in this month’s lineup we’ve given you some straight soul and swing so why not throw a little shuffle in there too! Wayne Anthony’s “G for Girls” will have you groovin’ and singing. The accents between the vocals and instrumentation in this song are so good it hurts. You’ll be putting this 45 on repeat and singing “Girls, Girls, Girls, Girls!” all day along. Check it out using the link below.

Jerry Ann (Thomas) and Las Vegas Cats: Go Go Girl/ Hello Hello

Label Owner: 2831 Abbie St., Shreveport, La. (1960-1965)

A Side: Go Go Girl

B Side: Hello Hello

 

Jerry Ann and Las Vegas Cats truly had a unique sound. So unique that it’s hard to place your finger on it. Surfer rock, country, blues, and jazz elements are all heard throughout the two tracks on this 45. Although the music itself may not be for everyone, it is worth checking out and you might just find some inspiration. You can tell Jerry Ann and the Las Vegas Cats were all about experimentation and creating no limits to their music. It is pretty great.
