Re: Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff. . .

Terror And Magnificence remains my favourite EC diversion by some distance, and the album is magnificent (though not terrifying) especially Sarah Leonard's contributions. Saw it live twice in 1966, in Nottingham and Birmingham. 1966? :) Sorry dyslexic typing fingers - duly amended ! I know I had an...

Re: Radiohead Public Library

It's a great idea CWR but I don't know what the demand would be. Based on figures from the 40 years ago project of live recordings seen on a certain torrent site, the demand for high quality (Soundboard or equivalent) concerts never exceeds about 300 seeders. Would exclusive live shows, such as the ...

Only a short tour with The Specials followed by a massive U,K, tour with just Steve playing A Face In The Crowd songs and some new Bacharach songs for the musical that hasn't hit the stage yet ! :wink:

Is it too much to hope that this will be a DVD release of the Almost Blue Albert Hall RPO concert? I've only ever seen one clip. Oh great shout, Neil.

Re: New release based on one of Elvis Costello and the Attractions most celebrated albums!!

This could be it! And if it is Imperial Bedroom, there are a lot of interesting live versions of the songs played over the years. They will need someone with a vast store of live recordings and the time and enthusiasm to wade through them all---- I wonder where they'll find anyone like this :shock:...

Re: In Praise Of Davey Faragher (By Elvis Costello)

Davey Faragher turned the bass into a backing instrument. Rarely noticeable, never exciting. And that's how Elvis prefers it. That, to me, is very unfortunate ... :D Great insight here Ymaginatif. Davey brings so much especially with his vocal interpretations that I fully understand Elvis' admirati...

Re: In Praise Of Davey Faragher (By Elvis Costello)

The remarkable, 42-year career of Elvis Costello has basically been split between two bands, the Attractions and the Imposters, with the latter uniformly regarded as the more versatile quartet.


Think I might take issue with this considering the range of albums and genres from 1978 to 1986 !
