Re: Elvis receives Lifetime Achievement Honor from Americana Music Association, Sept 11 2019

My favorite moment was in T Bone's speech. He was describing seeing Elvis at the Paradise in Boston in Dec 1977, and at the end of a list of descriptive adjectives, he concluded with "His aim was........ long pause while you say he can't possibly invoke the cliche.... ...pandemonium." Perf...

EC: "So how ya been? It's good to be back. We're so pleased to be here in Forest Hills and not in Forest Lawn. On the way here we were trying to think what songs would be appropriate for a night like tonight. My early career on the pro tennis circuit has gone unrecorded in song. So we thought ...

So glad he did the warm up in Gettysburg. Small theatre 30 miles away. Thank you, Elvis.

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

so mine shipped on the 16th from Batavia, IL. Four days later, it's made it all the way to Chicago! Delviery expected by the 25th, 9 days after it was shipped. I'm sure it will be in pristine condition.

Will this ever end?

Re: Elvis Costello & The Imposters 7” Look Now vinyl box set will now be out MAY 8, 2019

The poll question we really want is Are we not all collector scum in this forum? Yes No :lol: I certainly am. I don't think there will be 4 new songs, I think I waited in line and bought them last month and I don't really have a working turntable. So I'd like not to be messed around when it comes t...

Re: EC/Imposters and Blondie co-headline 13-date US tour, July-August 2019

A little surprised at all the excitement over this mini-tour. Given the co-headline setup, EC's set is sure to be short and greatest-hits-y, and I'd imagine he and the Imps will be the opening band on half the dates. I particularly expect that to be the case in NYC, Blondie's (and my) hometown, and...

FWIW, I also think National Ransom is a late period EC masterpiece, and I think that if you hold up LN & NR together they are two arguments for the strength of 21st Century Costello's artistic output.

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Memphis, TN, Orpheum Theatre , Nov. 19th 2018

There is a consistent problem with the bass and drums being way too loud. It depends on where you sit, people always say it's fine in the balcony or way back by the sound desk. But if you're in the first 10 rows, it's a problem. I found the mix better this tour than last, but two of my seats were ba...

Thanks for the terrific YouTube clips. Just a couple of questions given that these are the first clips I’ve watched. Firstly has Elvis ditched wearing hats full time? I noticed it at the London show but that wasn’t a full gig as such. Also previous footage I’ve seen only showed the ladies front and...

The songs done after Alison this time were bits of Living A Little, Laughing A Little, Crosstown Traffic, Somewhere Over The Rainbow, and Somewhere. Just to double check: "Crosstown Traffic" rather than "The Wind Cries Mary"? Yes you’re right AN. Thank you. Corrected for posterity
