Winfield Parker - I Wanna Be With You - P&L

70s SoulPosted by Martin Wed, May 26, 2010 07:41:35

Born in Cooksville Maryland, Parker did not have the classic musical upbringing that so many of 60s and 70s soul artists had, which begins with singing in church and high school groups. In fact he did not enter the music world until he was around 16 years old and then ít was as a saxophone player. After having played with some local groups Parker was signed to Little Richard´s band and toured with them for a couple of years. When he returned to Maryland again he started singing as well and was signed to Rufus Mitchell´s Ru-Jac records out of Baltimore. His first 45 came out in 1967 on the label and was also leased to Atco records, the songs were "What Do You Say" / "Sweet Little Girl". Several singles followed on a number of different labels, Arctic, Spring, GSF and also this on his own P&L records. A 1977 release which I believe is Parker´s last secular 45 to get released, as he is now involved with gospel music. Enjoy!

"I Wanna Be With You"
