Re: 'Bright Blue Times' - vinyl single - 500 on sale at latest shows, June 2017

Yes, to be specific, the 2nd 20 copies went on sale 90 mins into the Greek LA show.
The helpful Greek staff told when to come back (missing 20 mins of the show), but after 58 shows I can deal with that.

I was there too and you must have been two rows in front of me as I was sitting directly behind Billy.
Great show!

Re: "Brutal Youth" finally getting a vinyl issue!

Picked up BY today at Amoeba in Los Angeles for $36. The cover looks great, but I wont know how it sounds until i go out and get a new amp/receiver, the old one having finally died after 14 years.

Re: When was your first Elvis gig?

Despite buying my first EC single in '77 - Red Shoes, I did not start going to see him live until 1983. First show was at the Hammersmith Palias in London on October 17th 1983. Have seen another 53 times since then, the most recent last year at the Wiltern in LA on May 12th 2011. I have nearly all m...

Re: all this useless beauty: vinyl

Hey guys, does your vinyl copy of BEAUTY come with an insert sheet? I got mine of ebay for about $30 and no insert, but some copies I have seen on ebay seem to have an one.
Can anybody post a scan?

Thanks

Re: Royalty Theatre, 23 November 1986

Yes they did sell 'season tickets', 3 tickets for a slightly discounted price, so you got to see all 3 different nights. I purchased 2 season tickets covering the 6 nights. I took a camera to the 2nd solo night, I only have a couple of low quality pictures. You can see the screen and slide projector...

Re: Royalty Theatre, 23 November 1986

I was fortunate enough to attend all 6 nights at the Royalty Theater, sitting in the 2nd or 3rd row every night (the days before online ticket purchasing). Still the best Elvis shows i have ever seen. Now those recordings would make a decent box set.

Re: 'The Return Of The Spectacular Spinning Songbook', Nov.

So how many on this forum are buying this, over priced or not? I still have it on pre order from Amazon, had this been released at any other time of the year I would have skipped it. I am due a year end bonus and have mentally adjusted that bonus by $250 lees than it should be, that is the only way ...

Re: Elvis/Imposters, Los Angeles, May 11/12 '11

Night # 2 was a great show and my 53rd Elvis performance.
Not sure if this was the case with any of the other shows on the tour, but the May 12th show was being filmed professionally (I was right next to one of the camera guys), here's hoping for a live "Spinning songbook" DVD.
