Re: Elvis Costello cancels tour after surgery to remove 'aggressive' tumour

What terrible news to wake up to. I have a lump in my throat. Godspeed Elvis for a speedy recovery.

Re: Nice Words for The Delivery Man

Easily my fave release from Elvis this century. If the new album approaches TDM, I'll be pleased.

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.

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play Atlantic City, NJ , October 22 2016

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.

Re: Book promo, Los Angeles, 21 October 2015

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.

All I can say is that I hope that Elvis's fingerprints are all over this more so than Marcus Mumford's.

Re: T-Bone / Dylan project: Lost On The River

I agree completely. Your description of Mumford and Sons being a folk version of Coldplay is apt. I would rather pour molten lava into my ears than listen to either one of them. That said, Lost on the River will be a first day purchase for me.

For that price, Elvis better hand deliver it to me and perform a couple tunes while he's at it.

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Osaka , Dec 15 '13

The quality and performance on the December shows was a much welcome bolt out of the blue. I really didn't expect them to show up let alone be this good. Hats off to everyone involved.
