Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

I'm still waiting for the vinyl/CD from Amazon and it hasn't shipped yet, though I guess that's my fault for opting for free shipping. Still, I was disappointed when I went to download the digital version (the autorip) of the deluxe CD to find that it didn't include the bonus tracks. Thankfully, Spo...

Re: EC & The Roots play New York's Brooklyn Bowl, Sep. 16, 2

Thanks for posting those YouTube links. Looking forward to listening to a nice soundboard recording in 15 minutes. That's what I'm hoping for. So far it's sounding great. Glad they are doing this. Thanks Doc for your clips too. I watched "Ghost Town" before work and had the melody stuck i...

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

It's the Roots version of Masters of War with Captain Kirk on vocals and a little bit of Machine Gun. I'm pretty thankful I got to see this and The Seed performed live. Well it does say 'Drum Off' at the back! Brilliantly original. And Captain Kirk has a great voice as well as guitar skills (lovely...

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

Amazon in the US seem only to be selling the deluxe version of the cd and have increased its price in the last couple of days which doesn't seem like clever promotion to me. I've been hearing a lot of complaints about Amazon on other releases. They seem to be doing this a lot. The price of Wise Up ...

Re: 40 DAYS OF ELVIS COSTELLO: A Countdown To WISE UP GHOST

This could be the result of me agreeing with myself while mowing the lawn so I apologize in advance for the long post, but I can understand why National Ransom didn't fare as well and why I think it was missed opportunity. The songs were all written for this specific album but they sound like they c...

Re: 40 DAYS OF ELVIS COSTELLO: A Countdown To WISE UP GHOST

Thank you Connor for describing exactly the best thing about SP&S: Despite all the varied and unrelated origins for the songs, it's a surprise the whole album works and it does so because of the great instrumentation and musical performances. I can't say i enjoy it more than Momofuku but I will ...

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

Has anyone been checking out The Roots back catalogue? Maybe this is discussed elsewhere... I hadn't, but was listening to a bit of Phrenology, and one of the tracks off the John Legend collaboration and both sounded great. I love their sound overall. Yeah, I've been going back to my Roots albums i...

Re: Electronic Musician interview, October 2013

Has anybody else read the interview in this magazine. It has some pretty cool details about the making of the album. I can transcribe it if needed when I have more time. For now, here are a few highlights. Steven Mandel is pretty big fan of EC. His favorite albums are Blood and Chocolate and King of...

I've been enjoying it a lot though sometimes I wonder what it would be like to hear it as someone who's never listened to an Elvis Costello song in his or her life. The whole album sounds really good and I'm sure it'll be pretty rewarding on vinyl. I can understand the disappointment of hearing the ...

Re: New Gig Thread

Seeing her live made me appreciate her newest record a lot more, it also made me realize how big of a step it is compared to some of her previous recordings. She had a three pie...

Re: Have you ever stopped by a record store just to see what

Finally got around to post some pictures from my trip to Bananas Records in St. Petersburg, one of the biggest record stores in the world - so big it has two locations. The vinyl warehouse was the main draw for me, they have over 3 million selections. Of course, since I stopped over on the way to th...

I like Lindi Ortega a lot. I got her album last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. One of my favorite songs is "All My Friends" which is the perfect song to get drunk on those kind of nights. Yeah, her writing is nothing out of this world but that voice is amazing. I remember hearing her do a...

he is joking with us! By any chance is the number "No. 9" a Lennon reference? There haven't been 9 versions yet, not even by ba's count. That might make sense, it sounded quite experimental. I still haven't made up my mind whether I liked it or not. I guessed No. 6 because that's where I ...
