For anyone who had time for the man and his music
this 1983 live recording of a concert at Hammersmith
Palais is an essential treat for the heart and mind.
Moreover, for those of us old enough to remember his
early career it is a reminder that this was a man of
substance who had his eyes firmly fixed on the spotlight.

I first saw him perform with Elkie Brooks and Vinegar Joe
sometime in 1972. The majority of the band were dressed
down in denim (although I think I recall Ms Brooks wearing
a two-piece fringed brown suede number!) while Mr Palmer
strutted his stuff in a white rhinestone jacket and playing
a very nice (and very shiny) Gibson semi-accoustic guitar
(a Sunburst finish ES335 Stereo I think). The point of the
minutiae of these reflections is to attempt to convey something
about the man's style. Robert Palmer exuded style from every pore!

This BBC concert finds the man and his band in very fine fettle.

From early solo numbers like 'Sneakin Sally Through The Alley'
(the title track from his 1974 solo debut of the same name), funky,
loose-limbed and downright sexy; to the wonderful Carribean lilt
of 'Woke Up Laughing' and the tight and raucous electro-beats
of 'Looking For Clues (from 'Clues' - 1980) and certainly not
forgetting the dark magic of 'Want You More' and slinky charms of
'Pride' (from 'Pride' - 1983); it is abundantly clear that we are in
the presence of a master of his craft firing on all six cylinders!

Crikey! There's even a cracking version of 'Some Guys Have All
The Luck' - a 1982 single - with some great "Woo Hoo Hoos" (approx)
to sing along to if you should feel so inclined! (I DID!!

Well what can I say, finally after a solo career spanning just short of 30 years we have a proper live release from the legendary Robert Palmer. (Sound wise 2001 cut Live At The Apollo is a bit of a mess with heavy-handed post production and some re dubbed vocals).
The last time we were treated to anything new was the release of Drive in 2003 just a few months before Robert's untimely death. Incidentally if Drive is not in your collection, I highly recommend it to hear Palmer give it his all with his self-described 'rambunctious rocker' of blues covers.
As a Palmer fan for more than 15 years it is with some irony this album comes along just a few short days after I finally filled the glaring gap in my collection with the purchase of Pride. This live CD, recorded by the BBC at the Hammersmith Palais on the 31st May 1983, contains six cuts from that album alone, including the Kool and The Gang cover and single You Can Have It (Take My Heart).
Now to the content itself. Fifteen live cuts from the era when Palmer's career was just gathering mass-market momentum. Two drummers playing on the tracks provide a solid backing track yet allow for an offbeat rhythmic style to be aptly used on tracks such as Woke Up Laughing and Best of Both Worlds. If your looking for Addicted To Love style stuff then this album will probably miss a beat with you, that's not to say this album isn't kicking, try It's Not Difficult segueing Some Guys Have All The Luck and concert staple Sneakin' Sally. The use of drum effects and synths is heavily evident but this is backed up by some fantastic bass playing from long time collaborator Frank Blair. The band is tight, as you'd expect from the demands placed on them, and vocally Palmer is on form.

I won't reiterate what other reviewers have said so eloquently about this release. Except to say that I saw Robert Palmer tour around this period, and the material here accurately reflects the atmosphere of a gig, his tendency to roll one number into the next, and the of his soul delivery of his vocals and superb tightness his musicians.

I would recommend this release to anyone, both fan and newcomer as a addition to your collection.

A great price this cd, it brings back great memories of seeing Robert Palmer in concert on this tour at Newcastle Mayfair. Palmers voice is exceptional as always and a great band. Songs are biased towards his album of the time - Pride and unfortunately only 2 tracks from his first 3 ( and for me best) albums - Sneaking Sally and What can you bring me but some great tracks from Double Fun almost make up for it. Robert Palmer didn't play many concerts in England as a solo artist and the last tour he planned got cancelled at the last minute but for those who never saw him this is a good opportunity to hear how good he was. Only the lack of early material means it doesn't quite get 5 stars. A great artist never afraid to try different things very sadly missed.
