(U.K 1969 - 2003)
Born Alan Palmer on January 19, 1949, in Batley, England, he spent much
of his childhood living on the island of Malta before permanently
returning to Britain at the age of 19 to sing with the Alan Bown Set. A
year later he joined Dada, a 12-piece, Stax-influenced soul group which
soon changed its name to Vinegar Joe; after three LPs with the band -- a
self-titled effort and Rock'n'Roll Gypsies, both issued in 1972, and
1973's Six Star General -- Palmer exited to mount a solo career, and
debuted in 1974 with Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley, recorded with
members of Little Feat and the Meters.
With 1975's Pressure Drop, he tackled reggae, a trend furthered
following a move to Nassau prior to 1978's Double Fun, which featured
Palmer's first hit, "Every Kinda People." With 1979's self-produced
Secrets, his music moved into more rock-oriented territory, as typified
by the single "Bad Case of Loving You (Doctor, Doctor)." Palmer's
stylistic experimentation continued with 1980's Clues, a foray into
synth-pop aided by Gary Numan and Talking Heads' Chris Frantz which
yielded the club hit "Looking for Clues."
After 1983's Pride, Palmer teamed with the Duran Duran side project
Power Station, scoring hits with the singles "Some Like It Hot" and "Get
It On" (a T. Rex cover), which returned the singer to overt rock
After exiting the band prior to a planned tour, Palmer recorded the 1985
solo album Riptide, a sleek collection of guitar rock which scored a
number one hit with "Addicted to Love," the first in a string of videos
which offered him in front of a bevy of beautiful women.
The follow-up, "I Didn't Mean to Turn You On," continued to play with
the sex symbol image and hit number two, as did "Simply Irresistible,"
the first single from 1988's Heavy Nova. The video clip for this single was an instant hit, mainly due to the raunchy girls that danced along to the heavy bass line and toe tapping riff.
This Bootleg is a very hot show from the late, great Robert Palmer. It has been released in Italy under the title 'Feel The
Heat', however the post featured her is an Australian release entitled 'Unauthorised: She Makes My Day , released by Grapefruit records in 1994. Palmer does not mess around on this one, playing hit after hit like a buzzsaw. Sound is fantastic,setlist is outstanding with most of his hits featured.
Robert guested on "The Arsenio Hall Show" on 11 March 1991 and commenced a major UK tour in May. This gig at the Town & Country Club in London was broadcast by Radio 1. The Town & Country Club concert took place on May 30th, 1991, and was first aired on Radio 1 on the 8th June, 1991.
I think you will find this post to be simply irrestistable. Ripped from CD in mp3 format (320kps), it includes full album artwork for both bootleg titles and some select photos of those lucious gals from that video clip.
