Album Review

Available at gigs and at www.grahamparker.net, Yer Cowboy Boot is part of Graham Parker's limited-edition series of "official bootleg" releases of live recordings from his own Up Yours Records label. In this case, Parker is heard at a show that occurred in May 2004 when he was promoting his Your Country studio album. Accompanied by the trio of multi-instrumentalists Tom Freund and Drew Glackin and drummer Konrad Meissner (whom he has dubbed the Twang Three), Parker, in addition to performing many of the songs from Your Country, also takes the opportunity of the group's versatility to try out a number of songs from his extensive record catalog that he has rarely if ever performed live. These include such album tracks as "I Don't Know," "You've Got to Be Kidding," and "Crying for Attention," plus "Three Martini Lunch," a song first introduced on Live! Alone in America, but never performed in a band arrangement before. With such instruments as lap steel and mandolin in the mix, there is occasionally a country feel to the music, but the Twang Three are equally adept at making a sound that approximates a smaller version of Parker's old five-piece backup band the Rumour. The remarkable consistency of the singer's writing talent means that he could pick virtually any 19 songs from his repertoire and make a good live album out of them, and that is demonstrated in this set, which eschews most of his better-known material and hits a peak with the recently composed "Nation of Shopkeepers."

Drawing heavily from Van Morrison and the Rolling Stones, Parker developed a sinewy fusion of driving rock & roll and confessional folk-rock, highlighted by his indignant passion, biting sarcasm, and bristling anger. At the outset of his career, his albums crackled with pub rock energy, snide witticisms,...
