You did very well, SP. As I remember it, Steve didn't get to play the melodica, not even on "Almost Blue." And there was certainly no theremin! EC didn't give the title of "She's Pulling Out the Pin." He just called it a new song. But I think that phrase was repeated enough in the song that it shoul...

I forgot to mention that Elvis did his own introduction at the start. The lights went down, and then you could hear his voice over the PA with the usual stuff about recording devices and flash cameras being prohibited, and he said something like "please turn off the sound on your cell phones and pag...

Hey folks! Two straight nights without "Alison"! Prediction (or maybe silly wish) for Saturday: "I Want You" scored for symphony orchestra. Yes, I granted in a previous post that "Heart Shaped Bruise" was played - I had the wrong name. And Isaac Guzman is right about "The Love That Burns." It was sc...

For those who may be wondering about Upon a Veil of Midnight Blue, it was the first EC song. I probably should have used that title instead of I Wonder How She Knows, which is what Charles Brown called it. Elvis' stage patter was charming. In addition to naming the soloists as I said earlier, he als...

The program for the Avery Fisher concerts has a Deutsche Grammophon ad for the Il Sogno CD "to be released in the fall," with details of the 2-disc edition. I think the program says something about this being a simultaneous release with the new EC & the Imposters' album. I'll check those details lat...

I agree it may be a drug or alcohol reference. Long-time junkies craving a fix don't refer to needing to get high - they say they need to get well. Boozehounds sometimes say a similar thing, particularly when hung over, hair of the dog and all that. The song may be saying you've had enough fun, as i...

Elvis is truly a New Yorker now. Right before Clubland, he said, "It's good to go traveling, but it's so very good to return home." Just before doing Someone Took the Words Away, he said that he'd had the opportunity to do the North songs but never in their full orchestrations. He seemed to revel in...

Teenage Fanclub should be in the running for this. While Bandwagonesque and Grand Prix have been mentioned, I have a particular fondness for Songs from Northern Britain.

No one has mentioned Peter Gabriel in this thread, but I think Us is a 90s masterpiece.
