Re: New album Hey Clockface released October 30, 2020

Agree with topbalc and Hawk...except for the part about these recent records equaling EC's 70s-80s stuff. That's crazy talk. But yes! How lucky are we that he's not only still active, but doing interesting and different work here in 2020. It's a blessing. I long ago reconciled myself to the reality ...

"quite like it" is miles away from "towering achievement," no?

I hear that the EC piece in New York Magazine/Vulture this week is very good...but it's behind a paywall. Anyone out there with access to it willing to share?

Top Balc, Lester, BA...

You're right. My bad. I was/am, in fact, grouched up and it got the better of me. Steve has done yeoman's work bringing these performances to us. I'm very grateful.

Re: C & N New York 1996 2CD - legit?

Wish I'd seen the late show. I was at the early show, which was "challenging." Lots of idiots in the crowd--shouting, talking during the performance. EC was peeved, as was I.

I'm a bit unclear on the availability of SN's Immobile Tour broadcasts these days? Where can I see them? Are they on You Tube? If not, why not?

EC played "Nightingale" (Brinsley Schwarz) and "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding?" (also Brinsley Schwarz). He watched as Chris Difford (with Melvin Duffy accompanying) played "Messed Around" but did not participate. Difford also played "Cool ...

No. Spring for some proper artwork, FFS!

Re: which of these two long players is MORE of a clunker?

See, now this has turned into an interesting conversation! I'll have to have a listen to "Broken" today. Never paid it much attention one way or another. Maybe it's horrible. For the record... Three worst EC songs: Playboy to a Man, My Three Sons, Party Party. Two worst things EC has ever ...

Re: which of these two long players is MORE of a clunker?

i guess as a guy who loved ALIBI back when it was ALIBI FACTORY in 1999, the song could do me no wrong, any version. May i especially recommend the LIVE IMPOSTERS take from October 28, 2002 from Newark, New Jersey....killer NEIL YOUNG style. 8) 8) That Newark show was terrific. The a capella versio...

Re: which of these two long players is MORE of a clunker?

BA... I, for one, wholly approve of (occasionally) polling people on "worst"s in regard to EC, or any artist. A while back I'd asked the Wiki crew to name his three worst songs, and I got some really indignant responses. My attitude has always been that, yes, this is a fan's site and we're...
