Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Nottingham (England), June 15, 2018

The reviewer seemed very knowledgeable and more or less said what forum members had said in here.

Re: Big Issue interview , May 2018

The last few songs on North are 'Joy' songs where he meets and falls in love with Diana I would say. Especially Let me tell you about her. Frank Skinner when he interviewed him at the time said he didn't like him happy.

Re: Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff. . .

Sleep of the just I sort of ignored as it is something you may use but London's brilliant parade really made me prick up my ears (audiobook) and think maybe I had missed a few other lines.
