Parlet is an American P-Funk girl group, created by George Clinton. Debbie Wright, Mallia Franklin, and Jeannette Washington were the original members in 1978, the year they recorded their first LP, "Pleasure Principle". Washington and Wright were the first female members in Parliament-Funkadelic in the early 1970's. George Clinton convinced Casablanca Records to put out lots of money to promote the record, but Debbie Wright had a bad drug reaction and was in no condition to tour. She had to drop out of Parlet.
