Jonathan Wilson (Momofuku) with a nice story about EC - video

Jonathan Wilson played a solo acoustic show last night in NYC. He intros this song with a good story about how Elvis encouraged his early work:

His new album, Rare Birds, is really good.

Re: EC praises John Sebastian

Summer in the City was a decent song too (said sarcastically). Nice article about that song, and the band in general, with fantastic photos here:

His analysis is really insightful. I like the description of Lipstick Vogue:

EC was dancing as he made his stage entrance to this song.

That 2 minute instrumental ending of Photographs Can Lie is a thing of beauty. Kitten and Briana's vocal work is sublime.
