Luckily, those songs are even more worthy of your memory than their visual counterparts, and even more luckily than that, Palmer has a surprising wealth of strong and significant rock songs beyong them. "Bad Case of Loving You (Doctor, Doctor)" is an easy classic, the kind of song no one will ever touch for a remake because you simply can't improve on it. Palmer, however, shows a knack for knowing when and how to put his personal stamp on an old classic, proven here with Bob Dylan's "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight" (with UB40) and a medley of Marvin Gaye's "Mercy Mercy Me" and "I Want You."
Some of his hits that failed to become true radio staples sound even stronger in hindsight: the R&B jam "You Are in My System" and the Beatlesque ballad "She Makes My Day" are revelations. We're even treated to the two hits he had with his side project The Power Station, the energetic rockers "Some Like it Hot" and "Bang a Gong (Get it On).Read more ›
I saw him twice at the San Diego State Amphitheater, where he put on fantastic shows. I wasn't that into his entire catalog, but I went back the second time simply because he was such a great live performer. I am truly glad I got to see him. I'll be looking for the original releases now, which I had previously on cassette, and this one is either going back, or into the trash.
