Re: Elvis hints at new release: Lupe-O-Tone's vinyl singles

It would appear from emails that my copy has been despatched and delivery will be between 2 and 6 weeks. I assume this is because the cost has ensured that the disc won't be warped since it will be taken by husky sledge over the Arctic and then down through the Artic and North Sea by trained porpois...

Anyone else bored with this now?

Finger on the pulse as always, VG
I'm sure the Theresa May clip alludes to the Lionel Ritchie/ Commodores song "3 times a Lady" or else "The Imposter" for the extremely accurate "Duff" Vader impersonation !

Re: Elvis hints at new release

If it's a covers album with The Roots as a backing band , it could be mighty special and will need a IL your to promote with Steve as additional keyboard enhancement :wink:

Re: Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers - Woodinville, WA, Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery , June 1 2017  

There seems to be a streaming site which requires me to sign up for a free access for this concert - the site rhymes with "sneaker" ( note the Americanism there ! :wink: )-can anyone tell me if it's worth my while doing this or is it a bit of a con ?

Re: Green Shirt- extended mix from 1985

I'm sure someone from the EC camp pursues this site and hopefully they'll remember my moniker when it comes to the need for someone to sift through all Elvis' live recordings for the next set of re-issues with a live concert included. I think we need a 1979 AF concert and a Martin Belmont enhanced A...

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

The problem is , as Costello fans, we're in a minority. If you look st certain ROIO sites, recording of live shows will be taken up by 100-250 people at most. Even old Pre-FM recordings That occasionally come up barely reach 500 takers. Surely the best thing would be to offer the recording immediate...

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

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...
