'...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!
