Re: Elvis Costello & The Imposters 7” Look Now vinyl box set All orders will now ship by FRIDAY, MAY 17

not sure what to say. wish i hadn't order the purse e.p. got the songs for free on line. i know full well how downloading like that ain't a good thing, but if i like things i download, i will buy the product if i can. this four song repeat makes me MORE likely to simply not pay any more unless i hav...

and if they are new songs, it might encourage some to purchase who haven't. can't quite see why they are not saying, but, then again, the whole thing has been strange.

listening to/reading lyrics

Sometimes when I'm listening to himself and not reading the lyrics, meanings can double up undoes this. I'm sure that there's more than just these two: A voice that caresses and heels Like spurs A voice that caresses and heals Like spurs Who on earth is tapping at the window? Does that face still li...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

yep, that makes sense re: the tour. perhaps even a set-up for a duet on the tour? and there is something about eammmonnn szinger's artwork that i really like. the portrait of the couple in this vid, stuck together back to back, with all the garishness of the looknow orbit. amazing. hoping for lots m...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

two things. first, slightly odd to see a new video this late in the day, and for this song...which, before this, seemed slightly peripheral. . second, i don't tend to like these especially, but, to tell the truth, this made me like this song a lot more than i have before. not sure if it allowed me t...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

Does anyone have sales figures for Look Now? I guess I would also ask someone to help me understand them. I no longer have much sense of what a 'good' or 'bad' sales figure would look like, especially in e.c.'s case. I guess my main question is what sales are required for a CD like Look Now to at le...

Re: t-bone as SXSW

seemed to me his speech was about each of us developing a conscience (with this being what artists are, or can be, about) and electing this or that politician can't really help with that.

hopefully he'll have a 'sorry about the hack' note, just to acknowledge and dismiss.

somehow this seems connected to the t-bone sxsw speech....e.c and t.b. need to do a cd called Fake (one creepy layer underneath the looknow facades)

This is a great IDEA, and I miss record stores dearly, but almost no-one has access to an independent record store any more, me included. I don't really understand how this 'supports' indie stores. Can someone help me here? 3000 copies. Do the proceeds go to indie stores? or just draw people to them...

Re: LOOK NOW on 8 7" 45's box set coming 2/22

I'd be interested in who you think his target audience might be, e.g., with Look Now. Hard to imagine, for me at least, who it might be other than me/us, so to speak. But I don't have any idea, either, of how well his stuff sells.

"Go for it if it floats your boat and don’t worry if it doesn’t." Perhaps this should have read "Go for it if it floats your boat and don’t worry if it don’t." One might then say, however, "spare us the theatrics and the verbal gymnastics," which, of course, puts us rig...

Re: LOOK NOW on 8 7" 45's box set coming 2/22

Whose greed, though? Those who impose import duties on an object you can only get by importing it? Elvis? his label? This is, no doubt about it, an extravagant thing. And it looks like there is elaborate art work, etc. involved. It is all expensively done...i hope so, anyway for the price being char...
