A stunning tune. Not one for Northern Novices. Like a fine wine, one to be contemplated then savoured. Real gritty records of this rarity are few and far between. Sets the floor alight on the rare occasions it's spun in public. Looks as though it will fetch a tidy sum.

And what is a Northern Novice? I will perhaps concede that it's a great Northern record. In reality, it has very little to do with soul music - unless of course you're a Soul Novice.

Soul music has to be soulful, otherwise it is just Black Music. If it is soulful, it's probably got that special something that someone, somewhere will like. The Parliaments is heavily Doo Wop influenced RnB but brilliant because of this. To the Northern Novice unaccustomed to an immense range of quirky tunes, the record may appear unfinished. Whatever the story, it's a great dancer, a treat to listen to and a fine contrast to the up-tempo Motown-like tracks that hooked us when we were starting out.

I probably would have danced to it back in the day - with some decent marching powder.  :hypo:

Does absolutely nothing for me today but taste is just like opinion - we're all right! :D

One of the iconic records of recent times...... great memories of the best venues on the scene over the last 10 years or so for me :)

I can't think of another record in recent times that caused the interest this record did whilst it was covered up by Butch.  It was one of those records that made travelling worthwhile.

Yep - waiting in anticipation for 'The Masqueraders' to be played. Oh and that sort of OK. ... Mighty Lovers ;) ;) ;)

Great tune and sounds fantastic out on a loud sound system - propper banging Northern - what not to like!!

I love male group records and this is up there with the best of em, not saying The Mello Souls ever ran out of legs or ever will, but this came along albeit covered as The Masqueraders at just the right time

Plenty if soul in it IMO lyrically.  Far more than many records adopted by this scene.

Ady.

I recollect seeing the Parliaments on a list of your all-time favourite tunes a little while back...

So, no one having a nibble? Come on snipers  - whet our appetites a little. Could be interesting if several big-hitters start scrapping it out in the last 10 seconds...

Hey up Chalky - now there's a great idea for a thread?   Best Ten Records made big by Butch.

Easy one.

1-10 Mello Souls

11-99 everything else.

(However, Diane Lewis c/up might sneak in at 10)
