Re: early bugs!

It's an endless source of curiosity to me - this thing about the bits of a track that backing musicians contribute, and the credit they get for that. I note that 'Hurry Down Doomsday' is indeed credited to 'Costello/Keltner', but that - for example - Bruce Thomas doesn't get a credit for the bassli...

Intriguing.

This version sounds so much better in a female French voice.


That is very true!

It still remains largely pointless :D

Re: early bugs!

Wow - so did the MLAR song use a sample? It sounds exactly the same! The CD booklet says that Elvis composed the song 'over a series of drum and tuned percussion loops assembled in advance by Jim Keltner'. Which is true, Jim Keltner is credited for it on the Ry Cooder album. Did Jim Keltner create ...

early bugs!

Since Elvis himself is so inclined to point out his influences, here's one that I only just now picked up:

Have a listen to what Jim Keltner contributed to this 1987 Ry Cooder song :D

Finally received my copy, along with the CD, and it was definitely worth the wait. It sounds so much better. You could really feel the bass on the Helsinki compositions. I was indifferent to "No Flag" when it first came out on streaming but I'm really digging it now. The sequencing is gre...

The vinyl from the Costello-shop is delayed for another 2 weeks.

"The new expected ship date for these orders is November 27", says the email I've just received.

They heartily recommend listening to the download ...
It seems they consider vinyl, as a medium for music, obsolete ... :?

I think it's a very good album. But strangely enough, after every listen, I don't feel much urge to listen to it again soon. I almost have to force myself a few days later. Nor do I feel like I want to play it to other people. Maybe it hit me at the wrong time (that sometimes happens with albums), b...

I received an email that the Clockface LP was delayed for two weeks - to mid November. Maybe, if your superdecrazy package includes an LP, that holds up shipping?
