Re: Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers -Toronto, ON, Canada, Sony Centre For The Performing Arts  , July 20 2017

"Costello's inclination to sing off time from the phrasing presented on studio versions was a bit jarring" The above is my only consistent quibble with his performances over the years particularly last decade and a half? As a result he seems to be playing "'catch up", certainly w...

Re: Elvis (solo) plays Bologna May 28th 2016

He sat in a spare seat in the front row at one point while singing . I seem to recall during the Delivery Man tour(s) he did this on a number of occasions as he wanted to "watch the band". Think it was for Almost Blue and probably stage managed, as the only free seat on the front row was ...

Picked up mine from a local bookshop at the weekend (did not pre order) and was surprised it was a soft not hard back version. Was their a choice?
Assumed the intial print would all be hard followed later by cheaper/soft copies.Plus most images I have seen appear to be hardback. :?

It was on the "So Like Candy" CD single in 1991 and the Rhino reissue of Spike in 2001.
