Graham Parker (born November 18th 1950 in London) had held onto his reputation as one of the most important singer-songwriters for more than 30 years.
Together with The Rumou r-- a fusion of young musicians from the English "roots-bands" of the time like Brinsley Schwartz -- Graham Parker gave two shows at the Rockpalast. These 2 DVDs present both concerts: The first from 1978 was recorded at the WDR-Studio, Graham Parker's second appearance was at the Grugahalle Essen in 1980, where he opened the 7th Rockpalast Night.
The Grugahalle concert also had a celebrity: Instead of keyboardist Bob Andrews, who played in the WDR-Studio concert, Nicky Hopkins sat at the piano (formerly a member of The Jeff Beck Group, Quicksilver Messenger, and The Steve Miller Band, as well as a sideman in numerous recordings for other famous groups such as The Beatles or The Rolling Stones).
