Final Revilot

The Parliaments - A New Day Begins

Today's selection was the last 45 on the Revilot label, although it had a reprise as an Atco single. "A New Day Begins" features a nice groove and George Clinton's quirky style. Upon the demise of Revilot (and the affiliated Groovesville and Solid Hit concerns) the label's principals and assets moved in varied directions, with Don Davis (a label principal) going to Memphis to start a lucrative tenure at Stax, label principal LeBaron Taylor moving on to Columbia Records (and eventually becomeing an executive at Sony Music), and George Clinton turned the Parliaments into the Parliament/Funkadelic empire. It was a new day for all involved!
