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...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Detroit, MI, The Fillmore , November 13 2018

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

Re: You Tube: Elvis Costello and The Attractions live in Paris (1979)

BA, you know I’m just kidding. I believe what happened was when Chorus TV wanted to broadcast, they were not allowed in 1979 to show the material that was unreleased at that point (Opportunity, B Movie, High Fidelity...). So the second broadcast was after the release of Get Happy!! and it was okay (...

Re: You Tube: Elvis Costello and The Attractions live in Paris (1979)

June 1, 1979 Dave I still want to doubt that. But, i guess the editor was not fine with the newest Armed Forces and the yet unreleased Get Happy!! songs. Seems he was happy to make it seem like only first two lps existed thusfar. ba, why do you doubt me? :cry: Don't you know I'm an EC encyclopedia?...

Yes, lyrically as well as musically. I like to think myself to be a good judge of whether it is the same version only played solo OR if it is markedly unlike first take we know...just your opinion please. Yeah, this was debated in July under the Look Now: New Album Announced Thread, but the lyrics ...

And A Face in the Crowd had a whole new introduction, a new stanza, not the same melody. More like what used to be called a "verse" in songs for musicals. Dave Well stated Dave. I have no real 'MUSICALS' knowledge. But, i would agree this new part is a somewhat different melody to the tun...

Early on at this show at the Daughters of the American Revolution Constitution Hall, Elvis described the venue as the "Tear Off Your Own Head, It's A Doll Revolution Constitution Hall."
