CD Reviews

Howlin Wind
Kevin J. Burns | 06/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have to agree with the only other person who took the time to review this album. The over hyped and over produced bands seemed to get the ink while bands like Graham Parker and the Runour just produced great music and were great live. Elvis Costello was receiving great reviews and deservedly so, but Graham Parker was right there with him. Howlin Wind covers the full spectrum from rockabilly to the blues and this was definitely one of the best albums of 1976. Heat Treatment was the follow up and it wasn't far behind Howlin Wind. People from the Capital District in upstate New York are extremely lucky. Graham Parker resides close by and we're fortunate that he plays locally with some of the areas talenteed musicians and whether solo or with others he never disappoints.

Are You Kidding? Great Album!!

"I'm shocked, shocked I say, that there is not one review for one of the best albums of the 70s. This is like the antithesis (or perhaps the antidote) to the overproduced bands of the era (Styx, Kansas, Blue Oyster Cult, ugh, Jefferson Starship fer chrisakes!). Buy this and buy Heat Treatment too while you're at it. I give a slight edge to Howlin Wind but that just depends on my mood. It's like the best bar band you ever were lucky enough to stumble in on and hear and the great thing is, it sounds good when you're sober too."
Shocked!!!

"to find only two reviews for this great album, which features in the original rolling stones top 100 albums ever!

'howling wind' imo is musically even better than the much acclaimed 'sqeezing out the sparks'. there's a greater range of music here - blues, rock n roll, ballads, punk etc.

and the unique title song is alone worth the price of this disc.

exceptional music this!"
