Come check out my list of Ten Amazing Graham Parker performances (1976-1978) over at The Big Takeover!
To help pass the time till the start of Graham Parker's Big Year (more details HERE) MRML is going to dig into the bulging 'GP stuff' folder, to bring you a wide-ranging selection of bootlegs and out-of-print wonders, as we've done before (see HERE) and will do again.
Upon my first exposure to the solo Parker, I was underwhelmed. Perhaps because Parker had been such an impressive band leader, I wasn't' ready for this ultra-stripped down set. Now, of course, I can hear how the raw passion still burns through on tracks like the otherwise-unavailable "Soul Corruption".
