Re: Reissue catalogue in a mess?

Oh Jack, that's so poignant and accurate - we can dream of recapturing our past but the excitement and amazement I felt with Get Happy can never be achieved by any other musician, let alone bb Elvis, and I now can acknowledge "there'll never be days like that again !"

Re: Elvis song taught at 'O'-level?

I heard this at Exeter in 1981 when The Attractions played this at break-neck speed and Elvis garbled everything except the incredible bridge -(one of my favourite topics, Elvis' amazing bridges in songs - don't get me started !) It seemed like Elvis called either Secondary Modern or Motel Matches a...

Re: The Style Council and Elvis sing My Ever Changing Moods

I know Weller faced tremendous media backlash for breaking up The Jam and I personally never felt like The Style Council matched the Jam on so many levels but it seemed som...

Re: Elvis (solo) plays benefit in Austin, TX, Oct. 22, 2017

Not a brand new act but maybe some of the songs he'd resurrected for the IB and Other Chambers tour or even some of the Face In The Crowd songs done with Larkin Poe ? Didn't seem like too much to ask for a little variation from the Detour gigs that have been running for two + years!

I think I might as well start this topic as I will be encouraging all well known posters on this site to keep on uploading their live recordings from this period. Just a quick query as we approach October 21st. The recording that I'm aware of at this time is from Salford University as advertised in ...

Isn't there an obscure track that I don't own connected with a Ferrington guitar giveaway by Elvis ? Looking on the wiki it's called May 27th - has anyone heard it ?

I notice the ladies are wrapped up against the chill but, for once, Elvis doesn't seem to be taking any precautions to protect his throat -he obviously knows he won't be singing to an audience again in 2017 :cry:

Re: Mystery songs on ASCAP site

For those with the vaguest of interest in the "Star Wars Saga" , I can confirm that the last forum meetup at the Roundhouse gig in London did indeed provide more than a passing resemblance to the "Cantina Scene" in SW4 A New Hope, featuring Verbal as Hans Solo ! :wink:
