★★★★★☆ Why some music critics at a point in the 70's related Graham Parker to the UK punk scene seems quite obscure these days. Though lyrically more aggressive than let's say Nick Lowe, Parkers swinging R&B influenced rock did not grew out of the punk scene but out of the likes of Van Morrison and Thin Lizzy. Backed by former members of such pubrock bands as Brinsley Schwarz and Ducks Deluxe it makes one wonder if just debuting in 1976 would automatically grant the punk tag. The opening track "White Honey" on this his debut album sounds as if it could have come out of any 70's Van Morrison session after "Moondance" or if penned by Phil Lynott the same day he wrote "Dancing in the Moonlight". "Between You and Me" may not leave much hope, but still is one of the best UK ballads of 1976. "Back to schooldays" and "Don't Ask Me Questions" also are highlight, and though Parker has written quite a lot of good songs, this IMO is the best album-set he ever released.
