5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, August 21, 2004
This review is from: Heat Treatment (Audio CD)
There is simply no way to describe the raw emotion and passion that GP has in his music. Has there ever been so large a talent that has gone unrecognized in his lifetime ? Maybe Van Gogh is the only one. GP and the Rumour (the tightest back-up band this side of E-Street) rock out like their lives are on the line, with total commitment and a beat that won't quit. If you like Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen or Elvis Costello you'll love this. An Incredible CD.

Very well said. Criminally overlooked talent. But that probably adds to his appeal...

Absolutely agree and don't understand why GP has been overlooked by the masses, but then again many more mainstream artists have catered to the lowest common denominator, which GP has never done.

I always wondered why Graham Parker seemed to be cursed with undeserved obscurity. This LP, cassette, cd, whatever...is one of the tightest solid rock out works and today sounds as fresh as it did upon release. If I want a full album of solid music with no filler, I put this one on. It is so familiar to me that if someone records it out of sequence, it ruins the flow! I've had more folks hear this for the first time and want it!

Oh, GP was in our area last year and in venues where he could get on the personal level. What a genuinely nice man!
