TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘Squeezing Out Sparks’ – GRAHAM PARKER

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘Squeezing Out Sparks’ by GRAHAM PARKER
Released: March 1979 / fourth longplayer

ALL MUSIC review: “Generally regarded as Graham Parker’s finest album, ‘Squeezing
Out Sparks’ is a masterful fusion of pub rock classicism, new wave pop, and pure vitriol
that makes even his most conventional singer/songwriter numbers bristle with energy.
Not only does Parker deliver his best, most consistent set of songs, but he offers more
succinct hooks than before. Parker’s ruminations over a lost past give him the anger
that fuels ‘Squeezing Out Sparks’, one of the great rock records of the post-punk era.”

Score: 5/5 – full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: Graham Parker‘s very best to my ears
and rattles still sparklingly cutting today.
