Nothing says summer like some good funky jams and that’s what we have for you this month. The theme of June 2022 here at Parker’s Records is female vocals and funky intros from the 70s and 80s. Enjoy our list of 45s from Love, Devotion and Happiness, Live Experience and Lady Margaret & The Stovall Sisters.


Love, Devotion and Happiness: Joy Sweet Joy / Yesterday’s Fool


Label: P.E.U. (Released in the 1970’s)

A Side: Joy Sweet Joy

B Side: Yesterday’s Fool


This 45 from Love, Devotion and Happiness captures perhaps one of the best song intros few people know about! “Joy Sweet Joy” begins with a lovely intro composed of a beautiful blend of sounds from an organ, funk guitar, bass line and hi hat and then jumps into an awesome female lead vocal performance. You won’t be disappointed with this one!

Live Experience: Connection / Bed Time Story


Few things are more soothing than a slow and soulful female vocal performance. The pipes on the vocalist behind Live Experience is one you won’t forget and worth checking out. Side B, “Connection”, picks things up with an impressive instrumental intro before the vocals kick in. This song could’ve just been an instrumental track, but the vocals help take it to the next level. The band behind Live Experience is no joke and shows some true musicianship on this 45.


Label: E&B 365 (Released in the 1970’s)
