Forgotten Treasure: Theo Parrish – “Heal Yourself and Move” (1998)
It’s late Sunday afternoon in San Francisco and I’m listening to some music that has been my Sunday staple for so long. I don’t know what it is about their music, but Theo Parrish and Omar-S are often my weekend companions. In that sense this track is certainly not ‘forgotten,’ and since weekend is almost over I’m also a bit off timing wise, but still I’d love to share Theo Parrish’s “Heal Yourself and Move” with you, because I’m loving it so much at the moment. From 1998 First Floor album, the thing about this track is that there’s not whole a lot happening (then again depending on what you consider ‘happening’).
To me this track is about the beauty of pause and space, like a beautiful spacious decluttered room. The beginning is always my favorite part with its beautiful breathtaking exchange of go-stop. The rest of course needs no explanation, it’s the kind of journey within which you can comfortably lose yourself without any worry. Because I can assure you, you’re in good hands – the mighty hands of Detroit master Theo Parrish.
