Re: Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff. . .

Photographs by the late Jeff Rusnak (died 2006) are now on display, including this of Elvis from 1981. 'How a New Jersey record store clerk's 150,000 photos ended up in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside the titans he captured.' http://www.philly.com/philly/entertainment/music/rock-and-roll-ha...

Re: Elvis on Jools Holland (BBC Radio 2), October 15, 2018

Nice brassy version of the slow take of I Can't Stand Up. Usual spiel in the interview. He refers to Grace Of My Heart as 'not being a great film'. That's a pity - I liked it , it was even better when I rewatched it recently.

Re: Elvis dismisses SKA

Given that Elvis went on to produce The Specials I find it hard to believe that Elvis 'dismissed SKA'. However , he has said that at the start of his career he regularly made comments of a contrary nature to be provocative or due to being wasted most of the time. This link includes links to a huge r...
