Re: Twilight of the Gods

Every artist mentioned got his/her start in late sixties/seventies. Does this mean, as I would agree with, that the best musical decade was the 70's?

just throwin' this idea out

Elvis should do an album of KISS covers. I can just hear songs like Calling Dr. Love, Love Gun, Shout It Out Loud, etc.

Amoeba Records - What's In My Bag

It's interesting finding out what others are listening to. Bob Odenkirk is a fan of EC.

Re: Do you have a favorite EC concert?

Only seen him three times, but I especially liked a show he did in Boston (Orpheum maybe) with Steve N. and Brodsky Quartet.

Trump\Lonesome Rhodes

Watching Trump speak today, I could see a similarity between him and the folksy, average-talking-guy Lonesome. Do you think the reason Face In The Crowd did not come to fruition is political?

That would be a good double bill

I had my iPod touch on shuffle and what came on was Radio, Radio (Capital Radio version) off of This Year's Model (disc #2). This version is just Elvis playing electric guitar. It got me thinking that a concert with Elvis and Billy Bragg would be amazing to see. Have the two ever worked together?

Good job. I just found another good version of the song. I had never heard of Amanda Palmer before.

My EC mix cd

In 2013, I made a mix cd for some friends not that familar with Elvis. (I was shocked, too!) I recently found the cd and, upon listening to it, must say I did a pretty good job in the compilation. I wanted to include a variety of his styles and stay away from the hits. Tell me what you think. Bama L...

How is everyone doing?

I hope everyone is doing well. Personally, I am revisiting CDs that I have not listened to in a few years. I listen to one EC and another artist per day. Todays listening included 'Shaved Fish' and 'Double Fantasy"

Il Sogno

Finally found this disc at my local independant used cd/record store. I enjoyed it. Very melodic. Nice use of jazz influences. In my classical section it goes between Chopin and Haydn.

Re: For The Stars

The album seemed uneven to me. I enjoyed some tracks. Elvis dedicated the album to Cait. Does Diana let him listen to it?

For The Stars

Every day before work I stop in my local cd/album store and rummage through the dollar bin. Sometimes I find a keeper. I saw this and immediately picked this up. I am now halfway done listening to it and I am liking what I hear. With most Elvis' offerings they grow on you. I'm sure For The Stars wil...
