Caught Live (3): Paul Parker & All The Right Friends @ Katie Fitzgerald's 13/10/12

#428: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Any band that can perform a song entitled "Cliff Richard Ruined My Marriage" is OK with me - and so it was with Paul Parker & All the Right Friends at Katie Fitzgerald's over in Stourbridge on the night of Saturday 13th October.

This Shropshire based quintet managed to produce yet another rousing live performance that really did rock the house - literally. What I like about this band is that they not only perform their own excellent material but they also often interpret (rather than cover) other songs in such an original and fun way. And if their performances of "Babylon""Harvest Moon""Fisherman's Blues" and "This Is The Life" were superb, then their slowed-down version of "That's Entertainment!" and countryesque run through "Ace Of Spades" and "Walk This Way" were both incredible and to be applauded. Pick of the night for me was their Tom Petty tribute "Last Dance For Mary Jane" - and every bit as good as the original classic in my humble opinion.

Paul Parker & All the Right Friends are: Paul Parker, Adelle Parker, Phil Rose, Matt Parton and Roger Preston

ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) recommends Paul Parker & All the Right Friends to those enlightened folks who also like ELO/Jeff LynneRoy Wood'Brum Beat'The Idle RaceThe MoveThe Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 15-Oct-2012
