Re: Elvis and The Attractions, Montreux 1986 on TV

ecis1986.JPG ECIS from June 1986 proposes that three songs were played: Uncomplicated, Tokyo Storm Warning, and I Hope You're Happy Now. I can't imagine they went to Montreux just to lip-sync to three tracks, after all previous and later appearances at the Jazz Festival; all featured full sets ( 19...

Re: Elvis and The Attractions, Montreux 1986 on TV

As I recall, they only did 3 songs...this one, Tokyo Storm Warning, and maybe I Hope You're Happy? And I think it's Elvis singing live over the album track.

Re: For The Stars

It's not often I disagree with My Legendary Apostle friend but it would have taken a lot to persuade me to go and see EC and ASVO on the same bill - she always came across to me as too classical in her stylings and unable to shake that off to accommodate less than formal classical compositions - un...

Re: Look Now nominated for Grammy!

Is there no footage of him actually winning? Was he on the broadcast? no they only broadcast a few awards, this was a pre-broadcast award. Looked for footage of the acceptance speech, but haven't seen any yet. They have added the red carpet interview to Youtube, though: https://www.youtube.com/watc...

Re: Remedy Robinson's podcast about Elvis's lyrics.

This is a cool idea, I tried listening to it but the reverb employed every time the lyrics are quoted drove me nuts.

Re: ba LIVE EC songlist updated 10/19

Is the June 1991 MSG NYC show the only time The Other Side of Summer was played as a waltz? I can't find any recording of that show and would be interested to hear this version. The waltz version was introduced at the beginning of the MLAR tour on the West Coast, and was in fact played on MTV Unplu...

Re: Elvis writes about Linda Ronstadt

Very glad to see this graceful essay from Elvis. Ronstadt had undeniable vocal chops. My mother liked the Nelson Riddle collaborations but fell in love with Canciones de Mi Padre. One of my fondest memories is taking her to see Linda’s live version of those songs, with costumes and set designs like ...

Re: Elvis and The Imposters play Hershey, PA October 24, 2019

What a gas to hear Crawling to the USA!


Also happy to hear No Hiding Place, Charm School.

Elvis was in much better vocal form tonight, probably the best I’ve heard him sing since 2016.

Sound was pretty good too, still thunderous bass but pretty well balanced.

A very enjoyable evening

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...

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.
