Re: Do you have a favorite EC concert?

I don't disagree. I will say, however, that the songs themselves were gracefully liberated from the unfortunate clutches of Goodbye Cruel World in one fell swoop. Having seen three solo shows in April/May '84, I was fairly bemused upon release of the new album. I played along -- it was well above mo...

Re: What Next For Elvis after A Face In The Crowd ?

Given Nick Lowe's tendencies towards studio recordings these last many years, I would seriously doubt a "rave up" theme.

A Costello album, with a Nick Lowe approach similar to (say) "Dig My Mood", could be a theoretical marvel.

Re: Elvis and The Attractions, Montreux 1986 on TV

Strange. He's playing a Gretsch guitar, which, to my knowledge, he hadn't done often (in concert, anyway). It harkens back to my first Costello concert -- February 1978, Zellerbach Auditorium, Berkeley CA. After a cacophonus display on his Fender Jazzmaster, for the better part of an hour, he came o...
