Bent Out of Shape (1993)

Details Lead Performance: Bobby Parker; Genre: Blues

This most recently (re)discovered postblues blues guitarist, Bobby Parker, stings like Guitar Slim, floats like a King (B.B.), fuzzes like a Hendrix, go-goes like the house-rocking D.C. resident he is, and sings in a pinched voice on Bent Out of Shape that just manages to keep a lid on complete panic. B+
