"Tears Before Bedtime and Shabby Doll - both taken from most Elvis fans' least favourite album, Imperial Bedroom - only served to dampen the buzz built up elsewhere."

Huh?

Re: Elvis and The Imposters participation CANCELLED , Outlaw Music Festival Tour, Charlotte, May 26, 2018

Re: Banal fanboy list no 475: Elvis songs that sound a bit like other Elvis songs

The intro to Waiting For The End of The World and the intro to Big Tears have a very similar structure. In a good way, of course.

What did he say? (Royal Oak, MI 1978)

The 40 year anniversary celebration has got me reviewing some of the excellent ABC News 20/20 video footage, including this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHR1kOBce8s#t=0m20s During the intro to Radio, Radio, at 0:25, he says "They thought they were gonna stop us. [????] was gonna stop u...

Re: New EC track "I'll Still Love You" on "Johnny Cash: Forever Words"

From that NYT link - A similarly inventive approach guided Elvis Costello in his jazz-inflected reimagining of the poem, “I’ll Still Love You.” “I looked at the lyric and, before I could stifle the thought, the melody appeared in my head,” Mr. Costello wrote in an email. “I left Steve Berkowitz sit...

Neat little project. EC seems to enjoy putting together these interesting orchestrations. Burt's influence?

The 1978 Less Than Zero clip is a bit random though.

Upon review, it sounds like the same guy who screamed "Two Little Hitlers" about 1 second prior to the start of Almost Blue. Wildly inappropriate and not a plant IMO. The "Two Little Hitlers" guy was the balcony, or maybe way in the back on the floor. The "Welcome to the Wo...

Welcome To The Working Week was a shouted audience request. Yes, not by me, and it would be a shame if that took the place of Party Girl! :? I'm pretty sure this was semi-setup.
