David Parton – The Artist

David Parton (born David Eric Stanley Parton) is an English singer-songwriter and record producer from Newcastle Under Lyme, Staffordshire, England. He is also known as Des Parton, based on the initials of his first three names. Parton was the frontman of Strange Fox, who were nurtured by Tony Hatch in the early 1970s. Parton achieved songwriting success writing songs for Sweet Sensation in the mid-1970s, namely “Sad Sweet Dreamer” which was a number 1 single in the UK, and “Purely by Coincidence” which also charted. He arranged and co-produced both tracks with Tony Hatch and Jackie Trent. Parton then sang a cover version of Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely” which he again co-produced with Hatch. When the original contracted singer (Marcel King from Sweet Sensation) was unable re-create Wonder’s vocal nuances, rather than dispose of the backing track, Parton sang the lead vocal, and it was decided to issue this version. It was released on 15 January 1977 and was in the UK Singles Chart for nine weeks, reaching number 4. Lack of further chart action saw him dubbed as a one-hit wonder. He later worked as a songwriter and producer based in Cheshire.

Isn’t She Lovely – The Song

‘Isn’t She Lovely’ is a cover version of a song originally written by Stevie Wonder.  The Stevie Wonder version came from his 1976 album, Songs in the Key of Life. The lyrics celebrate the birth of his daughter, Aisha Morris. Wonder collaborated on the song with Harlem songwriter and studio owner Burnetta “Bunny” Jones. The more-than-six-minute song was not released as a single, as Wonder was unwilling to shorten the song to fit the 7″, 45 rpm format. With consumers demanding a single, Tamla compromised in late 1976, and a promotional version was given to radio stations. This edited version, 3:12 in length, received so much airplay that it charted in January 1977. Since then, the song has become a jazz and pop standard, covered by many artists.

The Heart – The Shape

This record has been modelled into a a loving heart. The heart shape and its meaning has evolved over hundreds of years. Nowadays it means love but before the 13th and 14th centuries it was generally drawn for decorative purposes. People at that time thought of our hearts as books of memory and believed feelings for the beloved were somehow written on your heart.
