The Parade were Murray MacLeod (also a member of The Roger Nichols Trio/Small Circle of Friends), Jerry Riopelle (Phil Spector protégé and former Philles staff producer), and Smokey Roberds (songwriter and actor). Originally signed to A&M Records, The Parade not only created a definitively West Coast pop sound but also unknowingly helped establish the sunshine pop genre via their 1967 Billboard Top 20 hit, ‘Sunshine Girl’.
This first-ever complete collection of the trio’s recorded output features the talents of no less than a pre-Loggins Jimmy Messina, Earl Palmer, Hal Blaine, David Gates, and other L.A./Wrecking Crew luminaries.
The gorgeous 16 page full-colour booklet also includes rare, previously unpublished photos and comprehensive liner notes that feature the participation of all original band members.
