5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have DVD For Fans, December 22, 2010
This review is from: Graham Parker & the Figgs: Live at the FTC (DVD)
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.
