By the late ’80s, Parker was considered a once-fiery comet who had passed off the cultural radar. But 1988’s return-to-form studio album The Mona Lisa’s Sister suggested a reassessment was in order. This live album shows Parker in pugnacious, confident form?if his moment had passed, no one dared tell him. Rumour stalwarts Andrew Bodnar and Brinsley Schwarz add support, and its old favourites?”White Honey”, “Local Girls” and “Howlin’ Wind”?shine while the previously unreleased “Sinkin’ Low” is a very palatable sad-eyed blues gem.
