- HiFi Trade?
'Stick to Me' was released in 1977 and is the third album recorded by Graham Parker and the Rumour. The album was originally recorded over a period of a month and featured lavish arrangements and a large string section. However, disaster struck at the mixing stage when it was realised that the 24 track master tapes were f**cked; the album had to be recorded again, and in the space of a week. A much scaled down version was recorded with Nick Lowe at the controls, this is the result.
I think that there is some great songwriting and playing on this, particularly the guitars of Brinsley Schwartz and Martin Belmont. The production has been variously described as 'grungy', but I like it just the way it is.
Hope that some of you find something to like here.
Spotify - It's there, but I seem to be too stupid to post a link. Could a kindly guru post it for me?
