Re: Green Shirt- extended mix from 1985

That's a really helpful summary Hawksmoor, many thanks. Can I just add that the Live DLMBM is probably the live track on the 12 " US promo from WNEW-FM. Meanwhile, 2 different versions of EIWTB appeared on 12 " in the UK with different running times. The first issue was on F Beat XX32 T an...

Re: Green Shirt- extended mix from 1985

According to Discogs, the US Columbia 12 " of Only Flame has a Monster Mix of PIU that it 4 seconds longer than the UK promo - I shall investigate :wink:

Re: Green Shirt- extended mix from 1985

I'm not sure that the few extra beats will make it worth his while but there's always the extnded Pump It up on the Only Flame In town. BTW, is there a difference between the UK dance mix on this and the "Monster Mix " on the US 12 " version ? - I may have to dig out and see if I've g...

Re: Leicester 1982 September 24th

Thanks, ANCT. Because of the timing and the fact that Elvis has mentioned that the song EIWTB was written in a Derby hotel ( and they played there the night before) makes me wonder if this is possibly from Derby rather than from Leicester. However, the setlist does differ from nearly all the others ...

Thanks Dave, I wonder where the info for the wiki setlist came from - I'll have to dig out my 1982 (or possibly early 1983)ECIS now !
Thanks again for looking, Dave

Leicester 1982 September 24th

I'm in the process of recording a few early shows for a fellow board member and in the process of recording this show, I find my recording is completely different to the setlist posted on the wiki and also to the one in GTTM. Does anyone have a recording of the show that is identical to those setlis...

Re: A Face In The Crowd: new musical

I told Elvis after Sheffield that if the new songs weren't for a musical, he should be making a new album and he laughed and said something about record contracts !!! Perhaps he's decided to just go for it and there'll be a UK tour promoting the new album in the autumn :shock:

Re: Your first meeting with Elvis

I'd first met Elvis walking the streets of Cardiff with Cait before the 1989 solo show in St. David's Hall, but they were very absorbed and obviously not wanting to acknowledge anyone so I just nodded and walked past. My first contact with him was at Meltdown at the Royal Festival Hall in the glorio...

Re: Seeing Elvis Costello's Whitton/ making-of-MAIT timeline

Thanks erey, I think your interpretation of the Rotten quote is pertinent, particularly to someone who around that time said he always felt older than he actually was. For those of us who were around at that time, it was the most exciting period in music that we could have imagined. Instead of waiti...

Elvis definitely made it sound like tomorrow in Sheffield would be the last Detour concert. He talked about holding a car boot sale to get rid of the set including the massive TV prop.

I stand accused, or at least not disappointed. The sound here was as good as I've heard from the Detour shows, the balance for each guitar was spot on and Elvis was again in excellent voice. I even almost enjoyed "She" :shock: He played beautiful guitar with the slower version of Stella Hu...
