UPDATE: There's a streamable interview with Walter Coleman, who wrote both of the songs below, over at the website of the Sitting in the Park radio show.Here.

The Para-Monts - I Don't Wanna Lose You

The Para-Monts - Come Go With Me

The slower number, "I Don't Wanna Lose You" slays me. I've been walking around singing "the dial from my ray dee ohh" softly to myself. But the flip, "Come Go With Me" was the moderate chicago hit in '67, and the more desired cut by the Northern soul DJs. Chances are, maybe at this very moment, there's an English postman, or cabby, or policeman spinning around in circles to the song, or I like to think so anyway.
