Track of the Day: 'Don't Be Sore at Me'

By Jay Ferguson

Past TracksBefore George Clinton's blood stream absorbed all those colorful toxins, and well before he descended from a silver UFO—resplendent in a white fur overcoat with platforms as if an ambassador from a distant R&B galaxy (representing only the finest interplanetary sartorialism on offer)—he was writing and performing ace '60s soul on par with the Motown greats of the era. If all six singles released on the Revilot label by The Parliaments had been compiled on to one LP back in the 1960s, it would surely have been remembered as one of the most happening soul albums of all time. No filler, unless you're talking about the dancefloor. Listening to this beautiful uptempo number, only the baddest, coldest heart could not forgive George and his members of Parliament.
