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

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 ...

Re: Leicester 1982 September 24th

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 !

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:
