Back In The Late 1970's

Bildergebnis für graham parker

It was back in 1976 when Graham Parker released his first album Howlin' Wind and this record was on heavy rotation on my turntable 40 years ago. It was the ultimate link between pub rock and the upcoming punk scene. Produced by Nick Lowe and members of Brinsley Schwarz they released one of the classic albums of the late 70's. Graham Parker developed his very own sound with the best ingredients of rock and roll, R&B, folk and the new sound of reggae. Professional musicians made the soundtrack to his soulful and deep voice. After his first masterpiece he made with Squeezing Out Sparks a few years later another great record. Good to listen to this great songs after all this years.

A true talent who never got the recognition he deserved

Three excellent songs Walter, good choice.

An excellent selection of tunes Walter. I've been lucky enough to see Parker supporting Bob Dylan several times over the years and he's always been well worth getting to the venue early for. As CC says, he's never quite had the recognition he deserves.

"It was the ultimate link between pub rock and the upcoming punk scene."

That's a very accurate description. Some of his stuff hasn't dated too well but the three songs you've provided today are still decent.
