Yes it is good to read again. If not the best then certainly in the top three. Makes you itch to see a run of Imposters gigs in 2018!

Re: New Elvis song in "Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool"

Perhaps the version without the strings will be on the b-side of the 7" single :lol: You'd hope it might be The Last Days Of My Youth but more likely to be Pump It Up, as it's on the soundtrack, or not happen at all. Unless something changes, we are in the part where he only makes records when...

Re: New Elvis song in "Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool"

Just bought it on iTunes. Hope a 7" single will follow - you never know.
It's a decent enough big ballad; no God Give Me Strength but 500% better than She.

For goodness sake Elvis just get in the studio with The Imposters and Nick Lowe and bash out a new album.

Re: Elvis hints at new release: Lupe-O-Tone's vinyl singles

Missed out on the vinyl over the weekend as I was away (boohoo - though may have been too pricy) Just downloaded and probably just as well I didn't shell out. Elvis's vocals are good on American Tune but I think Questlove's drumming is too intrusive and unecessary; think Pete would have done a bette...

My copy arrived today!
They do exist in the UK - mine number 588.

Re: Painted From Memory on vinyl in 2017 ?

I ordered my copy in the UK from Scott Nangle - bigger outlets don't seem to have it.
Emailed them yesterday to check availabilty and they had 50 copies in stock but had already sold 47 - 48 now with my order!
Act fast all!
Looking forward to hearing it+++++

Re: Homages to the TYM cover photo.

The With the Beatles and Born in the USA ones are great. They are probably more entertaining than most of their matches...

Re: Elvis's Worst Song And Why

The Stamping Ground would take my vote every time. Horrible dirge. She would be second to last - at least The Stamping Ground is never played in concert - why we have to suffer She is beyond all reason. Broken next. Tramp the Dirt Down also in the mix - and similarly overplayed in concert. God's Com...

I agree that it was an extremely good show. Great to hear a lot of new songs - hopefully something new is happening soon. Seems the bald head is now more acceptable and the constant hat-wearing out!

Truly brilliant video.
