Re: Elvis when you least expect it

I dreamed a new Elvis song last night. If I'd woken up, I would've transcribed it, as we're always gagging for new Elvis material.

But alas, all I remember was that it was a sarcastic mid-tempo rocker that sounded like it came off My Aim Is True.

Re: Elvis plays Manchester Castlefields 2018

Agreed, Verbal - I think this means an Imposters album and tour. Yessss!!! Why assemble these scattered players for one gig only? I wish the Burt and the 'Face In The Crowd' musicals every success, but if they're not happening, perhaps some of the songs will make an appearance on a new Elvis studio ...

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

Agreed, John - a film with two stunning lead performances. I already knew Bening is terrific but I had no idea Jamie Bell is such a fantastic actor. I think the pacing of the middle gets draggy - too many shots of them lolling in bed - but it's worth sticking it out for the last third, which had me ...

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

No, I don't think Sparkling Day got much publicity, and that film was widely panned. But this Liverpool film seems to be getting pretty good reviews and Oscar buzz for Annette. Perhaps he may be in with a chance for an Oscar nom himself!

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

Well, I wouldn't be surprised if this a precursor to a new Imposters album. In other news, it's had zero plays on BBC radio so far (at the time of writing - noon on Monday 13 Nov) - check his BBC homepage: https://www.bbc.co.uk/music/artists/8a338e06-d182-46f2-bd16-30a09bc840ba#tracks Not surprising...

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

Excellent - instantly catchy chorus! Elvis doesn't half come up with some great melodies. The video kept buffering, but it looked good. Love the piano riff. Beefy production, too.

P.S. his people should definitely try to get this played on 'Elaine Paige on Sunday', Radio 2 - it fits her remit of songs from films or shows.

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

plays in Switzerland as well! Amazing song, very much in the tradition of "Painted from memory" and - especially the atmosphere in the video - "She", he's just such a wonderful songwriter and singer. And always so fully involved in the things he's doing, without any compromises,...

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

I can't make this play on my Android phone, my Windows laptop or my Apple iPad. It's described as an Elvis emotional tearjerker, so I'm sold and officially champing at the bit now! More details, please, from anyone who's heard it!!!

Article about Shipbuilding

(it says '3 decades on', but it's getting on for more than that!) For the record, I've always preferred the Elvis version - vocal and production.

Re: ATUB Font on cover

No idea what that font is, I'm afraid - the CD sleeve says that the design is by Steve Averil and Patrick Swan for ABA. So if you're really determined, you could do an Internet search for them and get in touch.
