Re: Look Now: new album announced!

It seems like Elvis has to actually appear on shows to get his records played - Radios 4, 5 and 6 recently and BBC Radios 2 and Manchester today.

At least it is album of the day on Radio 6.

Look Now is currently number 4 in the Amazon UK CD and Vinyl album chart.

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

Looks like radio 2 has missed out on making Elvis album of the week again. That honour goes to Jess Glynne. I personally love the album I think its his best record in years Radio 2 aren't playing any new Elvis songs at all - Unwanted Number was played 3 times a few weeks ago. I think he must have u...

Re: EC at Barnes & Noble Union Square, NYC, Oct. 12, 2018- cancelled

Sad. I lost my dad at 15 (‘84) and my mother passed away on 8/25/18. I’m devastated. On top of that, My mother’s sister (Aunt) just passed this week. And if not to feel lower than ever, my employer issued me a PIP one month after my mother’s death. My life is in a bad state now. Thank goodness I’ll...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

Jeremy Vine, a big fan, plays Unwanted Number here from 32:41. Sounds great here. Probably better quality than Spotify etc.

Re: Elvis Costello cancels tour after surgery to remove 'aggressive' tumour

Bad news in the short term but it would appear that he acted quickly.

Good advice to all us men.

Elvis really needs to think of his loved ones, all his family and friends, and rest up.

Re: New Elvis song in "Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool"

If you log in to ITunes and search for the title you will find the video. I had to sign up for a 3 month trial, which I will have to remember to cancel. Good song, reminds me of something from North.
Looks like the official release, at least in the UK, is 10 Nov.

Re: Elvis on Top of the Pops

Absolutely loads of Elvis on the Top of the Pops repeats on BBC4 recently. First of all The Imposter on the eve of the 1983 elections, 20:40 into this. Good to see the audience clapping along. Nice hat and t-shirt:- http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08k50f2/top-of-the-pops-08061983 Then there wa...

From 08:09 minutes in. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b07g9zmn/top-of-the-pops-24121981 Elvis struggling to mime to a re-recorded track which he sings slightly differently to the single/album track. Wizard, Adam and the Ants, Elvis & Attractions, Bucks Fizz is the sequence. Such heady days!

Re: Elvis on Top of the Pops

Look out for the Christmas Eve 1981 edition being broadcast on BBC4 this Thursday. It features Elvis and the boys performing Sweet Dreams. I remember watching it at the time, a little surprised as the song wasn't in the top 40.

A prized possession. I loved that single at the time so much I splashed out on the 12" version (that goes on and on......). It also has a bigger version of the photo! I will have to look at my booklet tonight. I am sure I worked out which picture they were talking about but I don't think it is ...
