Re: Elvis/Imposters , Phoenix on Nov. 27th 'has been rescheduled to Saturday, April 27, 2019'

I had been looking forward to the weekend in Phoenix but family first, I've been planning a trip to see my daughter in Flagstaff -- was going to go that week so I could take in the show while I was down there. I realized about three weeks ago that this probably wasn't happening, so I pushed it back...

one from Elvis Costello & the Attractions (25/7/1997). I think they mean 1977. http://www.elviscostello.info/wiki/index.php/Radio_1977-07-25_John_Peel Yeah. No doubt. I love that session. I certainly hope that this leads to an upgrade in sound quality, as all circulating sources that I've run a...

Lovely sentiments, jardine . I, too, started "paying attention" fairly early on. December 6, 1977. My brother bought My Aim Is True on his birthday. It grabbed us immediately, unequivocally. Who could have possibly imagined where the path would take us over the following 40+ years. All I c...

Re: Almost Blue Promo 00001

I vaguely recall that there were multiple copies of #00001 popping up back in the day. Jake Riviera, being Jake Riviera, I believe.

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play 'Beaver Creek Hike to the Mic', Avon, CO, Sept. 2017

I wouldn't bank on Costello's vocals at 10,000 feet. (I believe Gillian Welch performed "White Rabbit" somewhere at high-altitude in Colorado a few years back -- and thought better of it, after the fact.) Hate to possibly curse him and all, but he's never really been one to back down from ...

That "organ mix" was on the "Bunch of Stiffs" compilation. Of that much I am certain. It was the first place I heard it -- and it was a real jolt, being totally unexpected. http://fredpopdom.free.fr/images/Stiff-Records/Bunch-Of-Stiffs---Front.gif https://img.discogs.com/Xubs8ddo...

The alternate "Comedians" is wonderful.
Strings heavy.

The entire BluRay production is fantastic.
Spectacular video definition.
Great audio quality.

Perhaps the finest document of live music, ever.
