He caught my eye and slowly shook his head, obviously knowing ...

Re: Essential bootlegs/ Getting started with boots/ General advice

MOOT has encapsulated perfectly a response I'd been trying to put together for several weeks. Apart from a slight difference in opinion on great bootlegs ( live At The Palomino 1979 and Hope And Anchor 1980), he's absolutely spot on !!

This issue with sound has been rumbling ( see what i did there :wink: ) on for years - at Nottingham in June I said that the first half was spoiled by too much bass and drums to Pete after the show and he joked "What's wrong with that!" but there have been instances throughout the tours wi...

Conor's being very modest here - his site was a definite "goto" for intelligent observation and discerning criticism of all thing Elvis and made a refreshing change from some sycophantic other sites in the late 90s and early 00s. he also had a sly turn of phrase which made you think again ...
