Go Tell (Your Quiet Sister)

After last night's Kettering, OH show (18 July) I'm finding myself more & more infatuated with this song. They only online evidence of its existence (that I can find) is the cell phone video of the Charlotte performance. Using that recording along with the little my poor vision could gather from...

Re: Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers -Kettering, OH, Fraze Pavilion  , July 18 2017

Just returned from the show. Sorry to say I didn't put together a set-list. On the whole I felt the sound was improved from last October's show in Akron though that may have something to do with the venue/seats. No huge surprises but we did get a very nice rendition of "I Still Have That Other ...

It appears the a-side may well be "Go Tell Your Quiet Sister"... the lower shapes of "ster" are visible below the redaction.

There's a fellow on the Steve Hoffman Forums claiming that the posted set-list has multiple inaccuracies & that "The Lovers That Never Were" was played. Can anyone confirm?

Re: Less Than Zero was first released ,as Elvis's first single, 40 years ago this weekend, on March 25th 1977

This is the mix on the first batch of the vinyl single - it would be replaced by the mix that has featured on releases ever since. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZwq3eKf0xQ This begs a question that has been bothering me for a while... I know that this, the 'organ mix', has been reported for some...

Re: My Flame Burns Blue - vinyl debut on BLUE VINYL , June 2016

I have El Mocambo, but none of the others. Extreme Honey is a Greatest Warner Hits, no? Deep Dead Blue is not really a Costello album? As for the two other albums, I did not know there were any vinyl editions. I want them. I looked at the Wiki and found that I am missing thees albums on vinyl: L102...

Secret, Profane and sugarcane is my least favourite of Elvis's albums. I cant think of the title of the song at the moment. but its the one that sounds like a load of drunks singing on a lurching ship and then it just stops. Surely you don't mean "She Was No Good" - one of the best tracks...

Re: UNFAITHFUL MUSIC & DISAPPEARING INK - Oct. 2015

Take 'Hallelujah,' the Leonard Cohen song that has become so widely covered as to almost a cliché. It's now being sung by middle school choirs, for Pete's sake; and is now so common that I find myself irritated at how the complexity of the song's meaning has, in most listeners' minds, been complete...

Re: Kojak Variety on vinyl

I sure hope that they can make a deal for Painted From Memory to be re-issued on vinyl, as it now has the distinction of being the ONLY proper Costello album to never come out on vinyl. (Even the G.B.H. soundtrack and For The Stars can be found on LPs!) As far as I know, My Fame Burns Blue was neve...
