Re: Elvis Costello cancels tour after surgery to remove 'aggressive' tumour

In my (indirect) experience of cancer, words like "defeated by a single surgery", and "recommend[ed] three weeks to four weeks recovery", certainly need to by qualified by a certain passage of time before they can be deemed as facts ... :( But like others have said, I'm not a doc...

They do exist in the UK - mine number 588.
Sounds extremely good - no surface noise at all. Even The Long Division sounds good!

Re: Paul McCartney: Flowers In The Dirt Archive Collection

Not so easy to disentangle these voices!

McCartney low in verse and high in middle bits; EC high in verse and low in middle bits I think.
Twenty-Five fingers' chorus is more tahn just two. In fact, I think they doubletracked both their vocals here and there?

Re: Least favourite lyric

Well, I like these recent albums, but I found his lyrics on Secret, Profane and Sugarcane left me cold. They scan badly (but don't all Costello lyrics do, and that's normally why I love them :) ), sound pompous, don't hang together, and with their ultra-american frame of reference have no relevance ...

Re: Elvis's Worst Song And Why

The Stamping Ground. It's just...dull, tuneless and lacking in interest of any kind. Which is something an Elvis Costello song should never be. Yes, that's one I agree with. I forgot to mention 'She'. That's a lovely song with huge potential. But Elvis' version is dreadful. And still it was such a ...

Re: Elvis's Worst Song And Why

'Sunday's Best' and 'Playboy Into A Man' were two major reasons why I started listening (and loving) Elvis Costello back in 1992! :D Anyway - worst song you ask? 'The Stamping Ground', I'd say. I usually prefer to skip this one. But all in all, EC is one of those artists with surprisingly few 'worst...

My copy arrived today, and it's a beautiful, lush edition - in a rich gatefold. The cover artwork is very effective on 12".
So... well worth checking this one out!

Now that Music On Vinyl has released Extreme Honey and Deep Dead Blue on Vinyl, doesn't it seem like there is a very real possibility that they could put out a double LP set of the Costello & Nieve 5-EP box? That would be cool - how about five 10" records?! (their website allows you to sen...
