Re: New account of an in store appearance in Seattle , May 2002

By June 25, 2002 Elvis had, in his journal, lost his enthusiasm for in store appearances - (extract) Having said this, we actually left the West Coast for Denver by air and arrived in Colorado in time to make an appearance at a record shop. At best, these events give me a chance to create a club atm...

My ticket has arrived . It's interesting to see that only Elvis & co. are named '+ Special Guests'. Mike Scott/Waterboys mightn't be terribly happy at such anonymity .I'm thinking of availing of the offer in the accompanying sheet for reduced admission to seeing the castle. All going well I shou...

Re: Getting to Davidstow, Cornwall on the EC Heritage Trail. April 2018

I linked this account on a Facebook page devoted to Camelford . A poster there says - I remember Elvis and his band spending several weeks in Camelford. They were staying at Outground Mill (next to the sewage works!) and practicing every day. We lived at the top of the hill in High Street and my par...

Re: Getting to Davidstow, Cornwall on the EC Heritage Trail. April 2018

As for the photo in the quarry, it looks from the same session as the photo of the back of the Chelsea sleeve. The UK version of the 7" at least. What´s on the back of the Argentinian version displayed here, i don´t know.


Thanks - I just edited in images of the U.K. sleeve.

Re: Trying to get to Davidstow, Cornwall on the EC Heritage Trail

Sulky & myself had an action packed trip to rainy Cornwall yesterday, getting to see the location of the rehearsals in 1977. A full report will appear in due course , these photos will have to do for the moment. https://scontent.fdub4-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/31389193_10155556272992957_146473473...
