Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBcQMLFddJs Review of the album in brazilian magazine Veja. It´s not much different from the reviews we´ve seen so far. The critic basicaly starts remembering that both EC and The Roots are known by their frequent colaborations and points out that neither Elvis nor The...

Listening. Epic! It´s great to have this recorded in good quality.

I think I´ll start this petition: The Roots for official Elvis band. Please! I love The Imposters but this is epic.

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

I ordered standard CD from Amazon UK (because Amazon US charges me absurd taxes). Yes, the deluxe version is way more expensive and quite unfair, even if those 3 extra tracks are really great. On iTunes the price difference is way smaller.

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

My pre-order downloaded this morning. After a few listens, Sugar Won't Work is an early favourite for me. The record to me sounds like a bit of a cross between the When I Was Cruel album and Isaac Hayes doing Walk On By . I have to say that my only frustration is that he could have sampled some mat...

Re: EC Live at Apple's iPhone event

I don't know if it is an Apple issue. I think the tune needs to published to the store. Maybe the Brazil iTunes store was overlooked or it's a licensing issue.

LOL I love his outfits! The "golden" suit is my favorite.

In the Live in Memphis DVD extras there's a scene of him buying a blue shirt. He seems to look for the most ugly shirt colour in the whole shop.
