Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Anyone know how many of the Parliaments Jobete acetates have surfaced? (or on tape for that matter).  Only one I know of is "You're not Hurting Him (You're Hurting Me)" and possibly "I Misjudged You".  Below is the list of Jobete compositions George was involved in for reference.  Would love to hear any of them!

2. Be On Your Way (Clinton) 
3. Come On Down (Clinton, Blackburn, Thomas) 
4. Girl Friend (Clinton, Lewis, Thomas, Haskin) 
5. Hear Say (Clinton) 
6. Heresay (Clinton, Fallon, Miller) 
7. Hold On (Clinton, Harris) 
8. Holy Smoke (Clinton, Thomas, Haskin) 
9. I Feel Good (Clinton, Harris, Haskin) 
10. I Found Out the Hard Way (Clinton, Harris, Haskin) 
11. I Waited (Clinton, Harris, Haskin) 
12. I Want to Thank You (Clinton, Harris, Haskin) 
13. I'm Never Gonna Tell It (Clinton, Fallon, Miller) 
14. I've Got to Find This Girl (Clinton, Harris, Haskin) 
15. If It Were True (Clinton) 
16. It's Unfair (Clinton) 
17. Junk Man (Clinton, Harris, Haskin) 
18. Keep On Keeping On (Clinton, Harris, Haskin) 
19. Let's Make Some Noise (Haskin, Clinton, Thomas) 
20. Little Fooler (Clinton, McCoy, Bratton) 
21. Oo Mother (Clinton, Harris) 
22. So Long, Goodbye, I'm Sorry (Clinton, Harris, Haskin) 
23. Some Things Weren't Meant to Be (Clinton, Haskin, Thomas) 
24. We Hurt Too (Clinton, Thomas, Haskin) 
25. What Did He Do (That I Didn't Do) (Clinton, Thomas, Haskin) 
26. Who Knows It (Clinton, Fallon, Miller) 
27. Why Did She Lie (Clinton, Haskin, Thomas) 
28. Woe Is Me (Haskin, Clinton, Harris)

The only one I knew of was "I Misjudged You".  Where can we hear "You're Not Hurting Her (You're Hurting Me)"?

 

A Pfunk fan is selling it for $4000 on Discogs  :(   A few people have asked for an audio but no luck.  I've never heard it.

Well done Illtalbeats

Thanks!  I don't want to take credit for the list though.  Was posted years ago the soulful detroit forum I believe.  Some additional info...

Junk Man was later re-worked for Fuzzy Haskins solo album.

Never Gonna Tell it and We Hurt Too were also re-worked by Funkadelic.

Here's one .. The Parlettes ... a.k.a. The Pets (Carnival) .. Vivian 'Tamala' Lewis, Betty Jean Taylor & Linda Hayles

 

When I first played it I thought it sounded like an embryonic version of the Debonairs 'Loving You Takes All Of My Time' in terms of tempo and BVs

 

Not many, if actually any (Keith Hughes will know for sure), of the tapes of NY Jobete recorded songs ever made it to the Hitsville Vaults so we'll only hear them if acetates have survived ... and of course they were Jobete published as opposed to Motown in-house recorded

I think the compiled list may have been only been songs that weren't recorded/released, but don't quote me on that.  

Some other Clinton Jobete compositions that were eventually recorded.  

The Perigents - One Girl Too Many (George Clinton, Tamala Lewis)
Eddie Harris - Hold On (Eddie Harris, George Clinton)
Tamala Lewis - You Won't Say Nothing (George Clinton, Fuzzy Haskins, Eddie Harris,)
Tamala Lewis - If You Can Stand Me (George Clinton)
The Pets - I Say Yeah (Joe Evans, George Clinton, Grady Thomas, Fuzzy Haskings)
The Pets - Westside Party (Joe Evans, George Clinton, Grady Thomas, Fuzzy Haskins)
Roy Handy - Accidental Love (George Clinton, Grady Thomas, Fuzzy Haskins)
Roy Handy - What did He Do? (George Clinton, Grady Thomas, Fuzzy Haskins)
Roy Handy - Baby That's a Groove (George Clinton, Holland, Dozier)
 

Wonder how many of these had demo versions recorded by The Parliaments...

OK that would make sense, but in the case 'We Hurt Too' appeared on Funkadelic's America Eats Its Young.
