That’s a wrap folks! We are so grateful for all of our customers and readers - so thank you from the team at Parker’s Records. 2021 has had its challenges, but we are excited for what the future holds. To end the year, we have a few 45s for you. Ever heard of a song called “Mustang Sally”? Well to start things off, we have a 45 from the Godfather of this iconic song, Mack Rice. 


Mack Rice: The Whip / Feel’s Good


Label: Lu-Pine 125 (Promo). Released 1964.

Label Owner: Robert West. 2930 West Boston Rd, Detroit, MI. 1011 East Mail St, Owosso, MI. 10131 Kercheval Ave. 4466 Detroit, MI. (1960-1980’s).

Growing up in both Mississippi and Detroit, Rice was bound to be a legendary singer. Referred by many as Sir Mack Rice, you likely know his name from the iconic song “Mustang Sally” in which he wrote in 1965 and is still popularly played today.
