"1982 - Fantastic debut organ driven garage rock album by Graham's first band The Prisoners on his own Own-Up label.  Essential."

"1983 - Dark and moody second album by The Prisoners on Big beat label."

"1985 - Back to Own-Up for The Prisoners third album.  Possibly the greatest album of his career to date."

"1986 - Seduced by the lure of mod label Countdown and the promise of chart success, The Prisoners made their fourth, final and most poppy album."

"1989 - After The Prisoners split Graham played drums with Thee Mighty Caesars.  Then he formed the 3-piece The Prime Movers.  This, their first album, is pure garage rock and is perhaps their best."

"1991 - A little less garage a bit more rock for the second Prime Movers album.  Now up to a 4-piece with Fay Day (Hallam) on organ."

"1993 - For their third and final album the Prime Movers left garage behind and went prog-rock.  Still a very good album with great songs but had some scratching their heads."

"1995 - Next is an album under the banner of Planet,  3-piece funky rock band on an Acid Jazz side label.  Perhaps the weakest of his career.  Worthwhile but not essential."

"1999 - After a 4 year gap Graham returned to his sixties garage rock roots with The Solarflares.  With the opening track of "Mary" we knew he was back!"

"2000 - A strong second album from The Solarflares.  Graham was now producing his best material since early Prime Movers."

"2002 - A third and eqully great album from The Solarflares."

"2004 - Fourth and final Solarflares album.  Also worth checking out is a 2003 compilation "Can Satisfy You" with demos/covers/live Solarflares on Graham's Own-Up label (never available on Amazon)."

"2007 - After taking a break and playing bass in The Buff Medways he returned with a new 3-piece line-up and his first (sort of) solo album.  It's another slab of classic garage rock!"

"23 of The Prisoners greatest tracks - a very well chosen compilation from their albums and singles.  If you are new to the music of Graham Day then this is a perfect starting point."

"Once you have the 4 Prisoners studio albums this should be your next stop if you want more - 22 rarities."
