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.

I don't mind the requests, but sometimes the timing is awful, like the Two Little Hitlers moment.

Re: Elvis and The Imposters , Port Chester , March 11 2018

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...

Re: Elvis and The Imposters , Port Chester , March 11 2018

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. Like, the requester probably put his request in before the show or something. The guy was a few seats over from me. He sh...

Re: Elvis and The Imposters , Port Chester , March 9 2018

Another excellent night in Port Chester. Enough changes to prevent me from complaining about a static setlist. As expected, they changed it up after coming back for Alison, starting with an impromptu You Win Again which clearly left Kitten and Briana in a state of mildly amused confusion. Video does...

Some thoughts: I was not in Brooklyn, but will be at all 3 Port Chester shows. The band sounds great. The Steve-EC segment was my favorite part, and definitely the part of the setlist that will vary each night. He called "Poor Fractured Atlas" the part of the evening when we put on our smo...
