The third installment in Soultreats! special northern Soul week, to celebrate our upcoming club night this Friday (21/5) with guest DJ Andreas Dienel.
Long before computer commercials and Motherships, George Clinton was proving himself a creative man with his group The Parliaments, which evolved to Funkadelic in the late 1960s. Clinton had been involved with music since the mid 50s and together with Grady Thomas, Calvin Simon, Clarence Haskins and Raymond Davis he earned a recording contract with Detroit based Golden World records. The group only had one release on Golden World though, the great "Heart Trouble" before moving to Revilot records, also a Detroit label. This is there second out of five singles for the label, released in 1967 in captures the essence of uptempo motorcity music during the mid 60s perfectly and also demonstrates Clinton´s great songwriting and production skills. Enjoy!
"Don´t Be Sore At Me"
