I'm a bit amazed no-one has passed comment on the sound quality of those promo CDs I distributed :(

Re: London meet up - Saturday 15th September

The modest turnout was compensated by the wide international makeup of those gathered , from Sweden , Dublin, the Home Counties and janner - land . John was there first of course quickly followed by Verbal, Neil and myself . Kjell appeared soon after that with a couple of cassettes of early Costello...

Re: Elvis on the One Show, BBC TV 1 tomorrow, 12 Sept. 2018

He was on the BBC main morning news programme but, being on holiday, I stayed in bed and missed it. Mrs. Sulky caught the end but didn't record it but even so, when we wound back the Sky box, she's only caught the farewell section. The presenter did say Look now is out now mistakenly of course .

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

I must say, if an album is to be released on vinyl, then I much prefer it to be over 2 sides rather than over 4 ( including Get Happy) and it's a real shame that albums like Momofuku and The River In Reverse where all put out over 4 sids rather than over 2 - so in some respect I'll be glad if Look N...

Re: Master tapes with Elvis Costello - 10th September 2018

I laughed at Fishfinger's comments about Bob Wilson ( and wished I'd seen Alistair's grand finale at the Oval too) but I'm gob smacked that he genuinely is John's father. I just hope he's a gooner too !! Perhaps that's why he mentioned that other famous DJ Gooner, pete Murray from the late 50s and 6...

It’s not Ken- Adian is it? Not sure where he hashes from but John and I met him in Sligo a few years back !
At Reading platform on my way to Maida Vale now. Anyone know where I could get the PFM mobile fidelity recording in London ?

Re: Master tapes with Elvis Costello - 10th September 2018

I caught the Mastertapes show at 15:30 on Radio Four last Tuesday featuring the great ( and humble) Sir Tom Jones and his sycophantic arranger/guitarist - to be honest it was a bit of a "all good pals congratulating each other on a great past/career/history" but Sir Tom was outstanding in ...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

I really, really hope and pray this album is judged on its musical merits and not on -any response to Elvis' health. These comments about the cancer are melodramatic and sentimental - which Elvis has always managed to avoid in his writing with aplomb, wit and honesty.

Thanks CTB, I couldn't remember the exact location where this version seemed so much more appropriate as a follow-on song - will check the recording again to see if my opinion is unaltered !

Am I the only one to be singularly underwhelmed by Under Lime ? A meandering wandering non- tune with lyrics trying too hard to tie in with the breath taking song that is Jimmie . Furthermore, I find the solo versions of Under Lime easier on the ear than the Imposters take on it - bah humbug, I’m wo...
