Re: 'Bright Blue Times' - vinyl single - 500 on sale at latest shows, June 2017

There is a fine line between fun and torturing fans. Or maybe torturing fans is part of the fun? I've long suspected that EC is conflicted by how much he needs us, compounded by his resentment of our fanatical dedication. He's already said that he makes all his money from touring, so why not, I don...

Re: All about the sound at Elvis's recent shows

The sound in Wallingford was pristine. No complaints from me. (or other people I asked who went to the same show)

Re: Elvis & The Imposters , Wallingford , CT Nov. 5th 2016

Clubland included the Insensatez snippet, Shabby Doll began with the first line of Happiness Is A Warm Gun, and Pump It Up quoted Subterranean Homesick Blues.

14 out of 15 IB tracks. Little Savage at the piano with the ladies helping out. Incredible.

I have no desire to hear Imperial Bedroom the song. As long as I know I'm getting much of the album, I'll just have to dream of the album in order.

Re: Elvis's Worst Song And Why

I'll put in an early vote for "Sunday's Best". Why? The lyrics are a list, cobbled together quickly. The keyboards don't sound like any carousel I'd like to ride. And the drums sound like I could be playing them.

Re: Detour DVD/Blu Ray on sale Feb. 12 '16

I've been saying for years -- or at least two record labels ago -- that he should sell his music directly to his fans. Pete Townshend did, Robert Fripp still does. But I think he still harbors some resentment for those of us who'll buy anything and everything.

I'd be interested in seeing an index, so I'll offer to help type. Also, how about captions for some of the photos? There's a shot in the book (not in front of me at the moment) of EC onstage next to a keyboard player who's definitely not Steve, Larry, Benmont, or anyone else I recognize.

Re: Glenn Tilbrook Discusses From A Whisper To A Scream (2015 show)

Great clip. Observations: 1. Nice how they're both playing guitars furiously without being plugged into anything. And Elvis is gamely "playing" the opening lead on his acoustic. 2. I love how Glenn pops into the frame for his first vocal. Cocaine's a hell of a drug. 3. Hopefully that's as ...

Considering that I've never seen physical evidence of the Pomp & Pout set anywhere, maybe -- just maybe -- I'll spring for this. If it's under $20. And I have the cash.

Re: New book: The Words and Music of Elvis Costello

I've read a few of these from this series (Zappa, Tom Waits, Van Morrison, etc.) They tend to be written from a fan's point of view, with a little more insight into music composition. As such, they're also more opinionated, and don't always have the facts us diehards might have at our grasp. Hopeful...

I still have my stack, stored in a box. It was a fantastic resource, particularly in the pre-Internet days. It also reminded me that I was nowhere near as fanatical about EC as I could have been.
