Re: Elvis when you least expect it

While viewing the previews for upcoming movies in the theater this past weekend, waiting for the feature to start, my wife and I were treated to the sight of an extended video of EC performing the song he provided for the new movie "Movie Stars Don't Die in Liverpool". In essence the video...

Re: Reissue catalogue in a mess?

"Petulant' is an apt word. It connotes a willingness to be obstinate; perhaps to be difficult. The mixture of wanting to be recognized while at the same time seemingly indifferent to recognition is a strange juxtaposition in one's artistic ambitions. If he does not want to issue traditional rec...

Re: Reissue catalogue in a mess?

That's a great note from EC! The remark about WB cracks me up :lol: I also enjoy the cynicism in the line about "having Universal's money" and hey, they can self-immolate if they like. As a fan, I'd appreciate his remark about "not living in the past" a lot more if he were still...
