Saturday video break: Hold Back The Night

Here’s The Trammps with a little soul for your soul:

The Trammps were probably best known for the 70s classic “Disco Inferno”, for which I can’t recommend The Bobs’ a capella cover enough, though sadly it doesn’t exist on YouTube. A cover of this song that does exist is by Graham Parker and The Rumor, in an awesome 1977 concert video:

Parker has had an interesting career, though I honestly couldn’t name any other song he’s done. If they’re as good as this one, I should check him out some more.

    I think I had this album and played it for you back in the day:

    You can listen to the whole album here:

    Graham Parker – The Mona Lisa’s Sister (1988) Full Album:

    “Get Started, Start a Fire” is probably my favorite cut.

  2. Some call Graham Parker the “poor man’s Elvis Costello”, but he deserves more credit than that. Some of Red’s favorite Parker songs are:

    OK, Hieronymous
    Discovering Japan
    You Can’t Be Too Strong
    Lady Doctor
    Mercury Poisoning
