I like the Pride album and played it a lot in the Eighties. It was a couple years before Addicted to Love - which I personally didn't like. Addicted to Love was being played all over the place and the female band video was captivating, but ultimately odd and cold.

Pride, however, avoids hype and cliche and has some great tracks such as The Silver Gun.

As of late I was fortunate to pick up the original Island cds from this British singer back catalog of the 1970s. Forget his 1980s mechanical new wave pop Clues & Pressure drop really showcase this mans talent. His early releases are very "American" in sound in the sense he focuses on blues, rock and reggae in many of his songs and pulls it off really well. Palmer had a knack for manifesting alot of feel when singing in these styles. As a musician he had a unique voice and was open to experimentation just like David Bowie but without the theatrical edge.

Agree and third this..Palmer was one of the finest white blues singers ever with a feel that simply cannot be learned-you either have it or you don't.Palmer had it in spades.A legendary vocalist.

I second that. Everytime I mention/ put on Palmer people only remember his 80's style.. If you get into his back-catalogue you will see this man was actually a very diverse and creative individual. You'll be remembered and embraced for years and years to come Robert. We all miss you

Robert was SO much more than the "Addicted to Love" video-style he will be remembered for. What a great, unique, blessed talent. Miss you, Robert ...
