5.0 out of 5 stars The Real McCoy/Macaw, December 15, 2010
This review is from: Graham Parker & the Figgs: Live at the FTC (DVD)
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!

Wow...I never thought of "My Love's Strong" or "Turn It Into Hate" as being deep cuts. Either that shows my devotion or I'm really weird. Or both.

It's all of the above. Your devotoin is real and well-informed. You probably are weird in that you are correct in knowing that this is the epitome of real Rock & Roll songism.. And that these are deep cuts....They are...very deep in the best of ways.

Richard, can you edit your review to provide the full songlist? You're obviously a REAL fan ("deep cuts") so I'm inclined to trust your judgement, but I'd like to know what's there.
