Yeh I was aware of that mix testing stuff on the opening track, I'm listening to the audio now. I knew it wasn't your bad Doc. Thanks you're a star.

Re: Proshot DVD of EC and the Attractions at Montreux 1980

I once had a bad quality video of this that I've mislaid. The available clips seem better quality than the version I had. The opening track "Accidents" sounds weird as stuff is being patched in from the desk. Can anyone re-up the entire broadcast somewhere please as it seems to have disapp...

Re: Elvis (solo) plays Tucson,AZ, April 9th 2016

Elvis debuted a new slowed down picking style arrangement of "Red Shoes" in Tucson. In fact he almost false started it after introducing "Everyday I Write The Book" earlier in the set.

Re: Elvis added to Prince tribute show, NY March 7th '13

I've always viewed "Georgie and Her Rival" as Costello's take on Prince's "I Could Never Take the Place Of Your Man" . I'm probably entirely mistaken. Nonetheless -- both are tremendous, under-rated pop songs. Interesting analogy.I know Elvis is fond of that particular Prince so...

Re: Elvis (solo) plays Santa Rosa, CA , March 29th 2016

Listening to the Dan Hicks version of "It's Not My Time To Go" It seems a perfect match for Larkin Poe on backing vocals, but I see Elvis did a piano arrangement solo. Did it still have the bossa nova feel ? I'm curious to hear it. Nice to see Elvis going hatless (at least some of the time...

Re: Will book tour include a little music nightly?

I imagine the format would be similar to the few discussion appearances he's done in the past like in 2005.

Guitar would be obligatory. Easy to set up and would help to illustrate certain things. Besides.... THAT's what he does ! 8)

Re: Bootlegs and a moral dilemma

Sulky, you refer to an AUDIO audience recording whereas the Eagle Rock Entertainment is a VIDEO recording as far as I’m aware. That distinction alone would make it different enough in my opinion. Also, if the bootleg recording is circulated AFTER the official release I think it would be more likely ...

Re: Elvis plays Glastonbury June 2015?

With all the Glastonbury promo in full swing today, I too wondered the same.. I doubt Elvis has any interest in playing Glastonbury at this time. However seen as a favour to Burt, rather than a solo Elvis performance, the possibility does seem slightly less unlikely. It may only need a phone call. G...

I'd like to echo all of the sentiments above. It was a great pleasure to be able to spend time in your company on your 50th birthday and what better way to spend a birthday than at another gig ? Was very decent of you to invite Elvis to your party. :) Many Happy Returns.

Just been to check out the venue. Elvis was soundchecking but was so faint I couldn't make it out. Could've been "One Bell Ringing". It's a quaint town and a balmy summer evening. I wonder how Elvis will relate his Blackpool anecdote that is "Ghost Train" to the people of this se...
