Graham Parker, once touted as the thinking man’s pub rocker (and an early rival of Elvis Costello’s), has been regularly dropping good-to-great albums for the past couple of decades, both with and without fanfare. Your Country is one of the great ones, a Brit’s take on Americana that reveals Parker’s always formidable songwriting chops are as well honed as ever. Highlights: a duet with Lucinda Williams on ”Cruel Lips”; a remake of 1979’s ”Crawling From the Wreckage” (written by Parker, popularized by Dave Edmunds); and a delightful left-field cover of Jerry Garcia’s ”Sugaree.”
