Biography

For over 30 years, Graham Parker has been slinging a signature sound across continents and airwaves that has rightly earned him a spot in the pantheon of truly original and influential figures in rock and roll. Since his early days with his band the Rumour (with whom he has two albums in Rolling Stone’s “Top 100 Albums of All Time”), Graham has coupled punk’s energy ...

Format: Audio CD
These songs were recorded in 1976 and 77 when Graham Parker & the Rumour were at their peak. The British Broadcasting Corporation recorded all these tracks. Half in the studio for a radio broadcast and the other half for a concert also broadcast. This CD is a timely reminded of just how good Graham Parker & the Rumour were. Parker may not have been the most powerful singer in the world (and very often his voice is drowned out by the band), but he sang his heart out with a soul inflected style that oozed passion. His main strengths lay in his song writing. Apart from Lieber and Stoller's Kansas City, all the songs are his. Like other songwriters from that period - Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, Wreckless Eric, Steve van Zandt, - he was swinging rock music away from extended jams and focusing on actual songs, and what excellent songs he wrote: White Honey, Soul Shoes, Silly Thing, Gypsy Blood, New York Shuffle, and many others which all appear on this CD. The Rumour were the perfect foil for Parker. They match his passion with a real ability to play their instruments, especially the lead guitarist, Brinsley Schwarz, who has never played better than on this album. Listen to his blistering guitar on Soul Shoes or his Cooderesque accompaniment on Back Door Love to see what I mean. Graham Parker & the Rumour were always under-rated. Maybe this CD will rekindle interest in him. I hope so.

Hard to top 13 Dec. 2004
By Phoebus Franca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the best rock albums I own. I hope these recordings don't go out of print. This is the great Rumour lineup and Parker is at his peak during the Howlin Wind, Heat Treatment, Stick to Me era (of course he did great stuff after, too). I'd get it before it disappears.

Should've Been Bigger Than Elvis Costello 24 Nov. 2009
By Russell D. Melling - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Rock and Rock is full of stories of artists who should've made it big and Graham Parker is one of them. A fiery Brit from South London with a raspy, soul-tinged voice, and a first rate back up band.
These BBC records made during the White Honey/Heat Treatment period, proved that Parker had all of the power and passion of the greats of rock and roll royalty.
