Graham Parker - Howlin' Wind

I hated this album when I first bought it way back in my high school days. Why? Because I read somewhere that Graham Parker was the “angry young man.” So I was expecting loud, very loud music. And boy I was so wrong. Instead of loud music, I got a rock album reminiscent of Van Morrison. Though I have to admit it has great tunes in it, it wasn’t what I expected. What do you expect, I’m younger, louder and snottier then.

Fast-forward to 1990’s, I started listening to Frank Zappa, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Van Morrison and the like. I remembered Graham Parker. It was only then that I appreciated this album. It’s not uncommon that I hated an album now and ended up liking it years later. This is no exception, this is a truly classic!

So what are you waiting for? Download it now and see for yourself.

Got this as a freebie when i bought two punk albums in 1977, (i was about 16) kept playing it and slowly got into it at the time he released New York Shuffle as a single and it charted, a real '77 punk' sounding 45. Then there was the classic Hey lord don't ask me qustions!
