Re: Elvis plays Warwick , May 9 2016

I opted for a drive up the M40 rather than double the price tickets for the Palladium. Never been to the venue so looking forward to a new tick on the gig map

Re: Bootlegs and a moral dilemma

(Brother Can You Spare A) DIME usually err on the side of caution in these matters. I was informed after offering to post a John Cale Tribute To Nico at the RFH that I taped that 'the artist's people' had asked for the tape already uploaded to be removed as it was going to be officially released.

The 3 Mobile Fidelity so far were truly excellent, from the original anologue masters. anything that can give Porky Peckham's work a boot get my thumbs up.

Re: Elvis's last great album

For me its When I Was Cruel (although have been listening to A&SC a hell of a lot since seeing the solo gigs) or The Delivery Man And I adore, Episode Of Blonde, the faux sweet chorus is sublime and Elvis's glee and swagger as he spits out the lyrics in the verses is infectious.
