Re: Look Now wins Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album!

Great picture. It looks like Pete hasn't even had his coffee yet. Look Now is such a magnificent album. I can't wait to hear the follow-up.

Re: RIP John Prine

A national treasure, this is a huge loss. Sadly, I knew that when he went in because of the Covid-19, there was a good chance in light of his underlying health condition, that he wasn't coming back out. I know you're sitting on a rainbow somewhere John.

Re: 40 Years Ago

While I wouldn't call it Bowie's best work or even upper tier Bowie, I certainly wouldn't call it misguided either. I think it's underrated, but most Bowie fans vehemently dislike it. Same for Pin Ups, which I enjoy. Pin Ups is wonderful. Ziggy and the Spiders do the hits of Swinging England. What'...

Re: Look Now wins Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album!

I've lived in Southern California for almost 12 years. The news of Kobe Bryant's death hit us like a nuclear bomb. We are all so deeply saddened for all the lives lost yesterday. I never pay attention to the Grammy's. I've always found them fairly useless. However, I am thrilled to see Elvis & t...

Re: Spike: 30 years ago

I don't remember the last time I played Spike. The album left me cold. I think Elvis was a bit too clever on this release. I understand the Tom Waits comparisons but only Tom Waits can do Tom Waits.

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Los Angeles, CA, The Wiltern , November 29th 2018

You and me both. I was there and of the approximately 15 shows that I've seen, this was easily in my top 3. Between his vocals and guitar playing he was on fire. Even at almost 3 hours, it seemed as if he could have gone on longer. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that I wish Elvis would sell his l...

Re: It's official..."brilliant new album"

Great news, made my day. I'm curious as to what the direction or sound will be. Will it be a continuation of SP&S/ National Ransom ? Or will it be like Momofuku? In any event, I have to pinch myself. I'll actually be listening to a new Elvis Costello & the Imposters album hopefully this year.

Re: Elvis playing Vegas, Feb/March 2018

I lived in Vegas for over 30 years. I still have a lot of family and friends there. I was trying to arrange a trip to LV to attend at least one of the shows. There are some pretty serious sexual misconduct allegations against Steve Wynn. I would think that has to be the reason.

Re: A series of special presentations by The Imposters in late 2016: Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers Tour

Loved IB then, love it now. With it's artistic reach in breadth and scope, I always thought of it as his "Beatles" album. It certainly didn't hurt to have Geoff Emerick involved either. I'm disappointed he didn't bring the IB and Other Chambers Tour out west.

Re: Why no official live bootlegs?

This is something that I've often wondered too. I know it's not recent but Springsteen , finally after all these years, has been officially selling his shows. Although my wallet and my wife would hate me for it, I'd gladly pony up the cash for multiple Elvis shows.

It sounded ok to these ears. Sadly it's incomplete. Ah technology. So far, the Ann Arbor show is the bellwether. Then again, there's not a lot to choose from.

I was there too and it was wonderful to see Elvis in a different setting. Yes Davey was there. Unfortunately there were intermittent sound problems primarily with Elvis's mic. Excuse my ignorance but who wrote Share your love with me.
