Product Description

Product Description

For most of the last 18 months the Ian Parker band has been constantly touring the UK and continental Europe. This album is a reflection of that busy schedule. Parker explains, "WHILST THE WIND was recorded in Hannover during my German tour of December 2004, and features four songs from INSIDE [his last sudio album, RUF1094], four brand new songs and four cover versions. I have been playing David Crosby’s 1970 'Almost Cut My Hair' for many years on stage and never tire of it. In recent months we have begun linking this with another wonderful song from 1970, Peter Green’s 'Green Manalishi'." "The new songs reflect significant events which took place in my life and in the world around me during 2004. The death of my grandmother is the subject of 'It Hurts A Man'. 'The Moral Men' and 'The Truth Within' reflect a general questioning of the course of humanity in the modern age, compounded in no small part by the foreign policy decisions taken by the UK and US governments during this period. 'By Your Side' was written during a moment of pessimism about my ability to maintain my relationship whilst out on tour all of the time." "We did not in any way attempt to doctor the recording, which I think conveys a great deal of emotion and documents fairly representatively the manner in which four musicians had grown together as a unit during a very busy year of touring.” Tracks: Power Of The Gospel / The Love I Have / Misfits And Fools / It Hurts A Man / The Moral Men / She Cries / The Truth Within / Feeling Whole Again / By Your Side / She’s All Right / Almost Cut My Hair - The Green Manalishi (With The Two Pronges Crown).

5.0 out of 5 stars whilst the wind............buy this NOW! 16 July 2005
By Janet
Format:Audio CD
This is not Ian's first live album although his first on Ruf Records. In contrast to the excellent studio album 'Inside', this album perfectly conveys the raw, gut-wrenching emotion that Ian delivers in all his live performances, which leave his audiences breathless and screaming for more.

Ian is a musician who is not afraid to bare his innermost feelings in his music, and this cd delivers that passion.
Backed by a superb band, each one an amazing musician, Ian reaches heights that most artists can only dream of.
A must in anyones music collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just What We've All Been Waiting For 15 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
It is so difficult to capture such a dynamic live performance as Ian's on a CD. But this recording is an absolute masterpiece - from the sound engineering to the mastering, the technical sound quality is exquisite.
And the music featured has several of the many facets of Ian's sound - fantastic vocals, great songs, and of course the guitar solos... There's ballads, blues, rock, soul, gospel, something for everyone and something to keep you enthralled.
If you buy only one CD this year, make it this one - you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'The Great White Hope'! 7 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
'...whilst the wind' is the exciting new 'live' CD from singer/songwriter/guitarist... Ian Parker and his band featuring... Ian Parker on Electric/Acoustic Guitars/Lead Vocals, Morg Morgan, ex-Parker's Alibi keyboard man on Piano/Hammond/Backing Vocals, Steve Amadeo, ex-Aynsley Lister Band on Bass and the talented Wayne Proctor on Drums.

This 'live' CD taken from their amazing set played towards the end of last year at 'The Bluesgarage' in Hannover, Germany in December 2004 contains previously unreleased tracks including the compelling 'Power of the gospel' and 'By your side' confirming Ian's continued love and fascination for blues and roots music!

With 'Power of the gospel', Ian not only takes inroads into gospel music, but also gives you a fascinating insight into the man himself! Other highlights include 'It hurts a man' which showcases Ian at his very best... delivering heart rendering lyrics before launching himself into an incendiary blues guitar solo plucking at your heart strings! 'By your side' takes this a step further placing him alongside other legendary luminaries such as Clapton, Gilmore and Santana for orgasmic blues guitar solos! A medley comprising of David Crosby's hippie anthem 'Almost cut my hair' coupled with Peter Green's 'Green Manalishi (with the two pronged crown)' who ironically was our last blues 'Great White Hope' ends this classic album!

As great guitar virtuosos have influenced previous generations with their music, the immensely gifted Ian Parker continues to fascinate his generation, as each exciting new chapter of his development unfolds. Like all great musicians, it's not so much what they play that's important, its how they feel and deliver it that matters... and this man certainly knows how!
