Re: Elvis, solo, Kansas City, 5 March 2015

Hello to all! It's been a while since I've posted here. I think it was the last time Elvis was here in Kansas City for the Spinning Wheel Tour. I ended up missing that show because of a leg injury sustained just days before. I will be there tonight though! This show tonight falls on Momofuku's birth...

Re: Elvis/Imposters play Kansas City, MO , June 30 '11

I'm hoping to make it to the show tonight. It may be a tough one though. Last Thursday I snapped a tendon in my right calf, so walking isn't the funnest thing to do right now, let alone standing on it for three hours, so we'll see. For Elvis... I could do anything. It is listed as a show with the Sp...

Re: Best EC Album of the Past 10 years

your system is good, but you really need to take the total running time of each album and then divide it by the running time of each of the tracks on the album before allocating your scores, thereby achieving a proportional weight to the individual track scores. Otherwise a song that rates well but...

Re: Best EC Album of the Past 10 years

I narrowed it down to my top three albums which were When I Was Cruel, The Delivery Man, and Momofuku. Then used a ranking system of 1 to 5 (for each song) with 5 being the best, and then took the average for each album to find the best one. There was only one 5 from the lot, that being "Countr...

Re: "The Worst of Elvis Costello"

Hey guys... it's been a while... I think I'll chime in on this one. I had a friend who I had turned into an Elvis fan after the release of Mighty Like A Rose. Not too long after that, his long time love had broken it off with him, to which he (seriously) proclaimed "Broken" to be his favou...

North of A Miracle

Hey Jackson, great to see another fan of this fantastic album! This was a must have record for any Elvis fan back when this came out because of the presence of Steve Nieve. That piano on "When It Started To Begin" was unmistakably Steve, and it was very cool. Looking at the track list now, the only ...

This is interesting..... I recently let (made) a co-worker of mine, (a 29 year old female) listen to Imperial Bedroom. She's into Top 40 and hiphop and such, so I didn't expect her to like it. She kept saying "he sounds sooooo sad"....."why is he so sad?". And now every time I bring Elvis up she say...

Nice to see the setlist here! This was the very first time that I did not take a pen and paper along to write down the songs. The show was great of course but the song selection.....well it's the luck of the draw I guess........St. Louis the night before had a much more appealing look for me I guess...
