Eddie Parker – But If You Must Go (1977)

Eddie Parker

Some more midweek soul. In the late 1960s, Detroit soul singer and songwriter Lorraine Chandler teamed together with songwriter and producer Jack Ashford, previously known for his work with the Funk Brothers. Together they penned songs for RCA and Ashford’s Pied Piper Productions. Their releases included the classic Northern Soul staples Smith Brothers’ ‘There Can Be A Better Way’ and Eddie Parker’s ‘Love You Baby’. But it’s one of their non releases I want to share today. Eddie Parker’s ‘But if You Must Go’ is the finest of soul. How did this one not get the audience it deserved?! We hear it today because Ashford relocated from the Motor City to La La Land, reviewed his back catalogue under the sun and released this gem on Beverly Hills label Miko Records in 1977.
