Well this review is for those who know the influence Ms franklin has had on Graham Parker's music;

What a great venue to see the Queen of Soul live, she performed Chain of Fools. Freeway of Love, and Respect, just a few of the numbers I can recall.
Her voice and piano playing was the best I had ever witnessed and she gave the piano a playing of a life time.
She shared memories about her sister, dad and Jo Frasier passing away and sang songs to their memory.
Angel is one of her songs she covered and included also some songs from her latest release.
Her ensemble were well experienced on their instruments and vocals.
The crowd did not go home disgruntled, even though Ms Franklin asked the air conditioner be turned down several times or she would leave.
The crowd much more of and older set of people then I had expected yet every age group was inspired by her talent were there.
Dancing, making us laugh was all in order of the evening it felt like New Years Eve's to me and quite a night I will not soon forget.
Have a great new day all.

So here is a few of the songs;
