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.

This along with Struck by Lightning is Parker`s best album. His second and really the one that marked out Parker as something unique. It`s hot,sweaty--perfectly titled--with a great cover photo. It`s guys rock without being neanderthal. The Dylan,Stones and Van Morrison influences are more subdued, and gritty black soul makes its entrance. The stand-outs are Pourin It All Out and Fools Gold; truly you have never heard rock and roll until you have heard Pouting it All Out; a hardrocking riff,wounded Dylan lyrics spat out,a band so tight it`s unbelievable...you can almost hear the musicians scorching their instruments. Fools Gold is like Sam Cooke meets Otis Redding over Roy Orbison guitars and soul-boogie keyboards. Hotel Chambermaid,Heat Treatment,Something You`re Going Through (Van MOrrison meets ska and reggae) That`s What They All Say and Help Me shake It all drip passion,groove and gorgeous melodies. Produced wonderfully with a raw country-blues sound by Robert Mutt Lang,who incidentally is now married to and produces and writes with Shania Twain. Strangely enough this album isn`t that far away from the sounds Twain has,along with Sheryl Crow,Counting Crows,Shelby Lynn and a host of present day `country` rock type people. This just has a hell of a more kicking bass. The ballad side isn`t too represented; Turned Up Too Late and Black Honey; but they`re just breaks in an unbelievably intense group of songs. That intensity soul music is supposed to have,but rarely does? Here it is.

If you have Howlin Wind, Stick to Me (which you may be able to find used) and this one, you have collected some of the best rock and roll of the last 30 years.
This one is not QUITE as good as Howlin Wind in my opinion, but that was a damn hard album to top.
GP came pretty close here. The songs here, especially Pourin It All Out, Thats What They All Say, Black Honey, and Fools Gold are truly GP at his most eloquent. The Rumour truly rock and are one of the most soulful bands I have ever heard. They will knock you down.
The man is an underrated genius who has spent the last 23 years trying to sell albums to people other than rock critics. Why don't people buy his music? I have no idea... but you should. If you like rock and roll, lyrics with an edge and music with soul (which is something music seems to lack these days) - then you will like Graham Parker.

4+, that is. Many call this classic rock 'n' roll. If they're comparing it with Boston, Dave Matthews, or other such over-blowns/watered-downs, I see their point. However, I hear a delightful hybrid, the sort of merging more likely when most of the sources are faraway (as with the Beatles and black "girl groups," producing something derivative while different). Elvis Presley or Johnny Burnette & the Rock 'n' Roll trio, who in their day had never heard of Otis Redding, could still kick the Rumour's ass at bare-boned ROCK AND ROLL. But who cares? This is great stuff. Back when it came out, and my friends & I were 20-something, it revealed a mature yet fresh approach to what would later come to be called Alternative Rock, Rock - let's not start that whole argument again. While stages were being dominated by a bunch of boys, or boyish personas(the Ramones, Sex Pistols, et al) Parker & his cohorts, like distorted reincarnations of Frank Sinatra or Louis Jourdan, jumped up and said, "Wait a minute - we can play - and we have experience!" - very sexy. My girlfriends & I consistently helped pack sweaty dance floors at Parker's U.S. tours. Think we'd have trouble relating to the viewpoint of "Hotel Chambermaid"? The song, which is written & played in a wonderfully circular/resolving fashion, is so convincingly joyful as to transcend such considerations. Along with "Turned Up Too Late," "Back Door Love," "That's What They All Say," & a handful from Howlin' Wind & Stick to Me, it's a timeless reminder of the innocence, hope & raw oomph that lived before AIDS & a host of other plagues drained some of the roll out of rock.Read more ›

Quickly recorded after the release and tour to support Howlin Wind Graham Parker's second album "Heat Treatment" doesn't get quite as much respect critically even from Parker himself; that's too bad because "Heart Treatment" is a fine sophmore effort and, even if it is a bit less consistent than his stunning debut, it's a worthy follow up to "Howlin' Wind".

Why is Parker so harsh you may ask? Well according to the man himself he didn't have quite enough material to go back into the studio and was asked by his manager to quickly record a follow up album. Parker dug through his back catalog of material--what was left in his opinion were also rans that didn't quite measure up to his best but he dusted them off, spiffed them up with the help of The Rumour and recorded them.

Now, one of your favorites may be one of the songs that Parker doesn't like (and critics don't care for as well) so we're going to skip the point and blame game here and note what WORKS in favor of the album.

First off, the remaster by Gary Moore sounds very nice indeed; it's a dynamic sounding recording and while Graham may not have cared for "Mutt" Lange's approach to recording all the instruments separately, it does give "Heat Treatment" a unique sound separating it (for better or worse) from "Howlin' Wind". It's a sleek album and the sleek production (IMHO) works for it helping the lesser material shine.

The remaster features two bonus tracks from the "Pink Parker" EP that was released in its wake.
