Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Graham Parker (vocals, guitars, harmonica); John Sebastian (autoharp); Garth Hudson (keyboards); Andrew Bodnar (bass); Pete Thomas (drums, percussion).
  • Struck By Lightning was the culmination of Graham Parker's previous two records, where he increasingly began to chronicle domestic tasks and affairs of the married heart. For such an intimate subject, Parker wisely decided to scale back the musical ambition of Human Soul on Struck By Lightning, recording a lean, stripped-down album that relies heavily on acoustic guitars. Appropriately, his lyrics were some of the most concise he has written in years, breathing life into tales like "The Kid With the Butterfly Net" and "Wrapping Paper." Parker's music is similarly simple and tuneful, making Struck By Lightning his best effort since the early '80s. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (3/7/91) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Rock music with this degree of thoughtfulness and maturity may be in danger of becoming a lost art, but STRUCK BY LIGHTNING proves that Parker is a master of it, a master at the peak of his powers..."

Musician (3/91) - "...his best album since SQUEEZING OUT SPARKS...what a delight to find Parker casting himself in the likable role of a world-weary British cynic confronted with the big joys (and small aggravations) of raising a family in suburbia..."

NME (Magazine) (2/23/91) - (9) - "...substantial proof that Parker has not softened with age...STRUCK BY LIGHTNING is right up there with 1979's SQUEEZING OUT SPARKS...A terrific record."
