Re: Universal vault fire: Were any EC tapes lost?

It’s NOT conclusive but for now EC isn’t on the list. No, it isn't conclusive, but it seems like a good sign. I'd also point out that that EC ended up on Universal through an initial deal with PolyGram, and the first New York Times article says most of the PolyGram tapes were in New Jersey: "S...

Re: ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS ANNOUNCE UPCOMING FALL TOUR

Though I long to see Elvis perform again in the UK, I have no feeling of entitlement. I imagine he must have mixed feelings about his homeland - the fun bauble of the OBE (for services rendered - a bit like an Oscar or a Hollywood pavement star[!]) pitted against the horrible shift in this country ...

Re: ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS ANNOUNCE UPCOMING FALL TOUR

Plus, he's a working musician: there's very low income from song sales in this age of streaming for peanuts - so he has to tour where the live ticket money is. Who says he doesn't earn from streaming and online plays of his music? I have heard that he have a good licensing deal with Universal and h...

Re: Elvis Costello & The Imposters 7” Look Now vinyl box set All orders will now ship by FRIDAY, MAY 17

It's not EC's fault as such I’m not suggesting it was. I just wondered what he makes of it. If the box set had been released when it was originally scheduled, the Purse EP would have given fans who had bought the box set a different perspective. Even when the main box set was scheduled for March 1,...

Re: Elvis Costello & The Imposters 7” Look Now vinyl box set All orders will now ship by FRIDAY, MAY 17

Well it's a manufacturing problem, which I suspect the original batch was rejected and all made again. It's not EC's fault as such. However, Second City have to be the worse D2C company I have dealt with and this is where EC should be looking to change. Appalling communication, and lack of active re...

Re: Elvis Costello & The Imposters 7” Look Now vinyl box set All orders will now ship by FRIDAY, MAY 17

Yes. I wonder why this wasn't released at the time of the album. It seems a bit random, like an after thought. OR, they felt they went OTT with bundles for the album release, which of course they did but I have no problem with it. Artists do what they have to to shift albums these days,

It's only a week, so no problem at all. I wish they'd confirm what the extra tracks are, it may sway some (inc me) to cancel.

Well, hopefully they start to be sent out next week to find out. I'll be p*ssed if it's the Purse EP. I'll be surprised if it isn't unfortunately. Well, that doesn't make the track exclusive to this set, or the RSD 12" tracks exclusive to that. I'm hoping this is the other 'Purse' release ment...

Re: Elvis Costello & The Imposters: Purse EP (Record Store Day)

Do you think the 'Purse' release advertised on the back of the sleeve is another 12" or album or the bonus 7" from the singles set?

Re: LOOK NOW on 8 7" 45's box set ' will not be available on the release date of March 1st, 2019'

I don't see this as blaming Amazon. I assume the product was recalled once the error had been spotted, but Amazon had sent some out in the meantime.

Re: LOOK NOW on 8 7" 45's box set coming 2/22

I have to say, this seems a bit of an after thought and also what's the point. So many versions of this album already. The collector in me gets excited but then I think, would I even play this. #dustgathererontheshelf

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

My gut feeling is these tracks aren't on the release, but maybe some kind of stand alone release later? Obviously, the new albums is more priority in terms of sales.

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

I don't know if this has been discussed already, but a couple of UK retailers are listing the double vinyl version with 4 different tracks. It's probably an error because the way they have been labelled are the same, but anyone know anything? Everyone’s Playing House The Lovers That Never Were If Yo...

Great, thanks.

Is it me or are bands starting to play earlier with no support these days. I saw The Waterboys recently and they did the same.

No no, the stalls are not on the floor, they run around the edge of the floor. The floor which we would called stalls in normal venues are called 'Arena' seats. They didn't give me an option to buy Arena seats.
