Rick Parfitt: Recorded Delivery

Sound — 6
This demo disc was recorded by Rick Parfitt (of Status Quo) to be released as a 'Solo' album. Sadly, as this is a demo, there has been no editing in its favour, nor have the tracks been as carefuly arranged as they might have been. The musicians perfoming on this album, however, were brilliantly tallented and were also to become memebers of Quo in the following years.

Lyrics — 7
Some of the lyrics do sound a little bit corny at times but at least they make sense. Most of the lyircs are a big step and a big risk from the classic 'Quo' style but just like everything else, Rick manages to pull it off. Ricks unique style of singing keeps this album alive. Though some might get bored of it after a while, this ones great to sing along to, if you take the time to listen to the lyics.

Overall Impression — 7
It's sad that this remarkable album was never released. Any Quo/Parfitt fan would be hunting down one of these extra-rare copies. But let me tell you now, there are less of these about than there are flying pigs. If you get hold of one, don't let go. Look out for it, it's super rare and a great listen for anyone.

    Who is the total knob who wrote the blurb? It's wrong. Get it right for gods sake and use the album cover not the single cover but well done belavista man. It's not your fault you had a complete twat editing it. Keep it up.
    belavista man
    Excuse me, where you come from, you use rhyming slang so that people like us Northerners don't know what on earth you're ranting on about. Goddamn James Blunt! lol
