ROBERT PALMER - BEST OF BOTH WORLDS : ANTHOLOGY Palmer, Robert: Best Of Both Worlds: Anthology Born on January 19, 1949, in Batley, Yorkshire, Palmer spent much of his childhood living in Malta, where his father was stationed with the Navy and where Robert was mesmerized by the voices of black song stylists like Nat "King" Cole and Billie Holiday he heard on American armed-forces radio. When he was 10, his family returned to England, setting in Scarborough, Yorkshire, where the budding vocalist attended art school at Scarborough Technical College and joined his first band, a locally popular combo called the Mandrakes, in 1965. In 1969, Palmer moved to London to join R&B-leaning horn combo The Alan Bown Set (whose monicker was later shortened to The Alan Bown), replacing Jess Roden as lead vocalist. Palmer was featured on the band's 1970 album Listen, on Chris Blackwell's fledgling Island Records, a label with which Palmer would ultimately have a lengthy and fruitful association. He eventually moved on to sing and play rhythm guitar with Dada, a 12-piece jazz/soul/rock ensemble that soon scaled down its lineup to a sextet and became Vinegar Joe. Palmer's three albums with that group—Vinegar Joe and Rock ’N’ Roll Gypsies in 1972 and Six Star General the following year, all on Island—found him sharing vocals with future solo star Elkie Brooks and making substantial songwriting contributions to the band's repertoire. Palmer launched his solo career in 1974 with Sneakin' Sally Through The Alley. The album, whose stellar supporting cast included members of Little Feat and the Meters, demonstrated Palmer's affinity for American rhythm and blues. That soulful sensibility was featured in the New Orleans-style grooves of such standouts as Little Feat's "Sailin' Shoes" and the sly title track, written by Crescent City R&B legend Allen Toussaint. Elsewhere, Palmer's own "Hey Julia" and "How Much Fun" demonstrated that the artist could write songs on a par with those of his idols. Incidentally, Sneakin' Sally's memorable front cover was shot in a tunnel near London's Heathrow Airport; the woman alongside Palmer is Josephine Florent, who later married Palmer's longtime manager David Harper.
