Graham Parker & The Rumour – Live in New York City, 1979

Graham Parker & The Rumour – Live at The Palladium, New York City, NY – May 11, 1979


I first heard Graham Parker & The Rumour around 1992 when my father brought home a copy of ‘Burning Questions.’ I thought then – and still do – that he sounds like a mix of Elvis Costello and early Joe Jackson with some Dylan thrown in.

In 1979, Parker set out on an extensive tour to promote his then current (and still my favorite) LP, ‘Squeezing Out Sparks.’ Several broadcasts were arranged by stations in the cities where they played and I was given this one by an older Deadhead friend of mine. He saw the same tour earlier in San Francisco and said it ranked among one the very best he’s ever seen by anyone. High praise indeed from someone who caught The Dead and many other bands in their prime!

Here we have Graham & The Rumour burning up The Palladium in New York City as broadcast by WNEW-FM. It’s an outstanding show and long a favorite of mine. I never go very long without having it in my rotation. If you like a little new wave, a little punk and some pub rock to round it out, check these guys out!
