I was looking after the boys today so I got the turntable, big speakers and a random box of singles out for a treat. Played this Graham Parker song for the first time in years. I bought it when I was 15 having read several rave Parker reviews in the music press but frankly didn’t think it was any better than OK at the time. Sounds bloody great to me now. It’s not rare or anything – it’s from Parker’s debut album – I just enjoyed hearing it again and wanted to share.

It’s from the days before picture sleeves were common so I made my own with sticky back plastic and a copy of the NME
