Trick-Or-Treat? We have all treats here at Parker’s Records and we are glad you decided to add our store to your route this COVID Halloween. You can expect to receive a few festive 45s from artists such as Witches and the Warlock, Billy Watkins, and Chuck Wright inside your Halloween goody bags. Be sure to check out the links provided below each artist to hear a sample of this week’s 45.

Label Owner: C. Toto Associates Inc. 32 Edgewood Rd, Madison, New Jersey. (1966-1968)

A Side: What Will I Do Now

B Side: Which Way Did He Go

 

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. Let us know what you think!

Halloween is the one night of the year modern society allows people to dress up and be whoever they want. The third 45 for this month comes from Chuck Wright and the A side is titled “It’s a Lie”, which relates to Halloween as this particular holiday allows people to somewhat live a lie for an evening. To end this month’s list, we are going to slow it down with a track titled “My Young Love”. We all had one - or wish we had one - so give it a listen!
