It was recorded at Winter Gardens, Bournemouth, Manchester Opera House, Apollo Theatre, Oxford and The Palladium, New York City; and mixed at Rockfield Studios, Wales. The album was recorded as a contractual obligation album as Parker had already signed with Arista and was preparing "Squeezing Out Sparks" for that label. The album was longer than a traditional record and Mercury elected to release it as a double album

Graham Parker & The Rumour. The Parkerilla Tracklist. 1. Lady Doctor Lyrics.
This album finds Parker more passionate and fiery than his studio albums and proves that the Rumour were one of the greatest 'backing bands' of the '70s and '80s, even hotter than Elvis' Attractions!. If, you've never seen Parker and the Rumour live, this reissue of the 1978 album is a decent substitue. My only complaint is the addition of the dance version of "Don't Ask Me Questions" I never liked the remixed version of this great track.
