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...

Re: Elvis's most 'Marmite' project

"Party Party", while hated by most, does have some fans: http://www.nosuchthingaswas.com/2011/02/party-party.html I think Party Party's great! I love this (mimed) clip. Elvis looking well cool here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JW-figfxjzs Thanks - great find! I'd never seen this one b...

Re: Elvis's most 'Marmite' project

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 :)

No my PRINCE friend. :lol: I did indeed understand most of that. I had a feeling it was just a bad label.... is the music REALLY unaffected at the end of each side?

Re: Just a nice image

I am confused.....Is this a broken record? AND was ATUB rereleased in 2014? it sure is impossibly tough to keep track of ALL releases and REreleases EC, it ALWAYS has been. :D :D Sorry, I should have been clearer. This is the 'Music On Vinyl' release, back in 2014, on heavyweight vinyl. This is how...

I've always like the symbolic resonance of my vinyl copy of 'All This Useless Beauty'

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...

I'd buy the super super superdeluxe edition (I enjoy paraphernalia, especially when they're signed), but I fear the import duties on that for delivery to the UK would knock me sideways ... :(

I thought *I* was the Invisible Man. But I suppose we didn't see each other before. Anyway, the album is growing. It doesn't exactly work like a McCartney album, which is relatively simpler(*) and straightforward. Now many of the melodies are stuck in my head. (*) although you can find articulated ...
