I have mixed feelings about this album. The performance are very good but the switch in styles halfway through the album from the forceful sound of Parker backed by The Rumour to the solo work was disconcerting.
When I wanted to hear Graham Parker I was in the mood for one style or the other.
Of course, I understand that this contrast may suit other people very well. I have to accept that some people only want one or two live albums by Graham Parker.
