Re: Armed Forces Redux - 6 record set

6 discs

disc 1 album
disc 2 rhino bonus disc
disc 3 live at the holywood bowl

those we have

disc 4: live
disc 5: live

probably concerts we have floating around already

so disc 6 might be new?

It suddenly sounds a whole lot less exciting ... :)

Re: 50 Songs For 50 Days - Elvis Costello's October Surprise

Sounds like a very slow way to put up a playlist on Spotify :)

I hope that it will be something more than just that - dragged out over 50 days.

Re: New song "Phonographic Memory", August 28, 2020

Pushing the enveloppe - all the way back to the late 1960s :lol:

Reminds me of some Eric Burdon and the Animals Stuff ('The Black Plague', 'Man/Woman'), or even Boudewijn de Groot ('Heksensabbath').

Re: In Praise Of Davey Faragher (By Elvis Costello)

Davey Faragher turned the bass into a backing instrument. Rarely noticeable, never exciting.
And that's how Elvis prefers it.

That, to me, is very unfortunate ... :D

Psycho!

'Psycho' - now here's a freaky, schizophrenic song! I love Elvis's live rendition of it, which I first picked up on the 'Almost Blue' Ryko reissue CD. The things they used to put in pop songs! :D Anyway, I though I'd give it a try as well. Not overdoing it - just trying to make it smouldering, menac...

Could it be that in the eyes of the general public, Elvis Costello *is* marmite? :D

With the exception of a few songs, The River In Reverse never really worked for me. Maybe one day :)

Re: LOOK NOW on 8 7" 45's box set ' will not be available on the release date of March 1st, 2019'

Someone suggested that the holes in the artwork to show the record's label are the 'missprint'' that's holding up everything? Seeing it 'in the (virtual) flesh', with a reproduction of the CD booklet, I'm very much inclined to go and cancel my order with the website. After Paul McCartney's big box o...
