Re: Elvis on soundtrack to 'Vinyl' TV series, April 2016

Listening to Look Now I found myself flashing back to the similar 'big sound' of this Jim Ford cover Elvis did for this tv series Point Of No Return https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFed6wF34yQ Elvis also covered Back Stabbers for the same project https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=de2c1921p3c I had th...

Re: Elvis's funniest line or song

Funniest song to me is the live versions of God's Comic when he does all the patter during the song.

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

I can't stop listening to the first 3 songs, they're so good. I haven't looked forward to an album this much in years.

Re: Sequel songs

Didn't EC mention at some of the IB shows that "Long Honeymoon" is a sort of sequel to Watching the Detectives? Maybe I'm mis-remembering.

Re: EC plays corporate gig in New Jersey, May 4, 2018

From similar experiences, I expect you could “suggest” songs for the set list but not “dictate”. The suggestions would like be incorporated if judged to be within reason I agree it’s an expensive jukebox but think of the possibilities!!!! I would only pony up the 50 g's if I could DICTATE!! :lol: :...

Re: EC plays corporate gig in New Jersey, May 4, 2018

What do you think EC pulls in for a gig like that? $100k? MIKE...i think not. I bet he only has to guarantee 45 minutes. And with no band, overhead, roadies, busses, soundman, security, management etc...and all the hors d'oeuvres he can eat!!! a 250 limo to and from the big Apple, i will say 50 get...

Re: Thoughts on the New York Shows...

Anyone here who went to all four? Any thought on which was the best? I only went to two, but I'd be surprised if 3/9 didn't emerge as the highest-rated.... I went to all 4. I would say 3/7 and 3/9 were virtually a tie, with the slight edge to 3/7 only because it was fresh and the more energetic sta...

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...

Great show, far surpassing the previous night, IMO.

And having sat Orchestra Right last night, I can say I officially have a crush on Briana Lee!

Re: Elvis and The Imposters , Port Chester , March 8 2018

Generally agree with Doc's take, although I thought the overall performance in Brooklyn was much better. A little disappointed that the set list was largely the same as the night before. However, Poor Fractured Atlas was worth the price of admission alone. It is possible my perception was affected b...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Brooklyn, March 7 2018

Elvis Costello + Brooklyn = brilliant Really great show, with EC in fine voice and spirits. Good crowd too, which he seemed to appreciate. 4 new ones for me: (1) This is Hell, (2) Motel Matches (finally after 30+ shows!!), (3) Talking in the Dark, and (4) You Shouldn't Look at Me That Way. Only nega...
