All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
For most intents and purposes, Graham Parker emerged fully formed on his debut album, Howlin' Wind. Sounding like the bastard offspring of Mick Jagger and Van Morrison, Parker sneers his way through a set of stunningly literate pub rockers.

    Great songs, Great music, hard hitting Rock and Roll and yet its still unknown to the majority of Rock fans. No Rock fan should be without this album.
