These Dreams Never Sleep - Graham Parker, CD
Limited seven disc (six CDs + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) set. These Dreams Will Never Sleep, The Best Of, 1976-2015 celebrates the incredible 40 year career of one of Britain's most seminal songwriters - Graham Parker. The 124 track box consists of three anthology discs with some of Graham's best loved recorded work as a solo artist and with The Rumour - one of the UK's pioneering pre-punk bands. The Live At The BBC 19 track disc includes very rare, choice picks from Graham Parker & The Rumour's 1979 Live At Hammersmith Odeon show, and Live From BBC Sight and Sound in 1977. Discs five and six are Live From The London Forum, these never before heard recordings are taken from Graham Parker & The Rumour's last ever live show in 2015, and also feature the legendary Rumour Brass Section for the first time since 1980. The whopping 34 track DVD is a perfect blend of old and new. A specially recorded live show taken from Graham Parker & The Rumour's last ever tour, last year at The Brook in Southampton makes up the first 21 tracks, and this is followed by rare archive solo performances in the late 70's on TV shows including Top of the Pops and The Old Grey Whistle Test. Alongside this, there is a 36 page hardcover book, featuring a new interview with Graham and an overview written by Holly A. Hughes, as well as a poster and three postcards.
