Willie Parker - Don´t Hurt The On You Love - M-Pac!

60s SoulPosted by Martin Wed, March 04, 2009 09:22:25

What a tune! This is why I fell in love with what is called northern soul. On an obscure label from Chicago with an artist that never made much noise anywhere comes this terrific piece of plastic. Released in 1967, "Don´t Hurt The One You Love" came out twice in a short period of time with different B-sides, "Salute To Lovers" and " The Town I Live In". Listen to Willie hammer in what seems to be a rather mundane message, and I´m sure that you will, as I did, really understand that the message lies not in what you say but how you say it. The B-side of my copy holds "Salute To Lovers" a great track in its own right. But on this day we´ll call it "Salute To Willie".

"Don´t Hurt The On You Love"
