    If you're a big fan of Graham Parker, you must own this. The video quality is top notch, as is the 5.1 audio. This is really a true concert video. It's the real thing, from the 2010 tour promoting the Imaginary Television album. So there's a lot of material from the new record. Most artists would have leaned more on the old chestnuts, knowing that the show was being videotaped. But GP is too real for that. Make no mistake, there are a bunch of old faves, particularly strong renditions of Life Gets Better, Local Girls, Mercury Poisoning, White Honey, and Soul Shoes. In addition, it's a treat to hear some refreshing deep tracks like England's Greatest Clown, Blue Highways, My Love's Strong, and Turn it into Hate. His band is great, and the rapport on stage is very revealing; they know they're in the presence of greatness and thusly basking in the glory of it all. I basked as well...I'm endorsing the basking. Bask away!

    I was at the show, and this sounds and looks a lot better than the live event. If you are a fan this is a must have, any music lover would appreciate the quality of GP and the Figgs performance, and would be a good intro to his style and back catalogue. I'm just waiting for my royalty check as we appear about a half dozen times in between tunes as the camera scans the audience. Filmed one night in Fairfield Connecticut in a venue which probably seats about 150. Great memories, and this is a great live disk with the bonus interview.

    Format: DVD
    The list of artists that can change your life, or at least the way you think about life, is really pretty short. Graham Parker is on that list. GP could not write a bad song if his life depended on it. The fact that he is still churning out great music is a gift to us all. I was thinking the other day about the sad fact that many artists do their best work later in their careers, but our youth-fixated society dismisses them out-of-hand. Well, unless they do a duets type record paired with young, hip, current pop stars. Of course, GP was never embraced by the mainstream, so no use lamenting too much. That whole story has been told. This DVD is so wonderful, from the song selection to the audio and video quality. The pacing of the set list is perfect, mixing new songs off Imaginary Television, with a wide span from other records. The Figgs are way cool, and seem to genuinely enjoy every moment of playing. You can tell that they respect the stature of GP, yet they come off like a cohesive band in their own right, including Graham. Being very competent, but not virtuoso musicians, they let the songs shine and never distract with any grandstanding or doodling. GP's voice still has all the emotion you need, tempered by a man who has seen it all and seems comfortable in his own skin. He appears comfortably resigned to his place today, and hopefully in rock n' roll history. In one segment he introduces the band members and tells about their day-jobs. These aren't folks with allusions of stardom, just your neighbor up the street that loves to play music in between coaching high-school wrestling or making investment banking deals. There is something heart-warming about the whole dynamic. The audience is of course enthusiastic, being periodically coached on the making of the DVD aspect.Read more ›

    I'm really glad I treated myself to this DVD. I'm a long-time fan of Graham Parker and have seen him live about 4 times, but never with The Figgs. I do have some live CD's with the Figgs backing Parker, so I knew I could expect a tight performance. This performance shows why Graham continues to rely on them as a Rumour replacement. The band's sound is great, though during Local Boys, when GP trades verses with his bandmates, it is clear that the mics for guitarist Mike Gent and bassist Pete Donnelly are too low. I have no other complaints as the production value is good. Watching it, one gets the impression GP is playing to a much larger audience. The value is amazing considering you get an audio CD of the performance too. Great interview with GP going over his origins and influences, and an explanation of his latest album Imaginary Television. The new tunes shine in a very interesting set list, which could actually disappoint fans who expect more of GP's early years. GP plays a nice array of songs from his entire career, but not songs you would necessarily expect -- one surprise being a grooving version of Black Lincoln Continental from Steady Nerves (a song choice that I've never seen in his set lists from previous tours). This is a must for anyone who appreciates Graham Parker. Worth every penny.
