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...

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?...
