Re: Elvis & The Imposters play 'Beaver Creek Hike to the Mic', Avon, CO, 16 Sept. 2017

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:

Re: Glasgow 13 October 1977

As I've said before, I'm sure that there must be a large number of uncirculated shows out there somewhere, either Ines people have recorded and kept to the themselves or professional ones deemed unsuitable . The Rhino reissues were great but I got scared that the same old shoes would come up rather ...

Re: Glasgow 13 October 1977

Thanks, KRM, what you say makes a lot of sense ! I'm just surprised that GTTM definitely lists a 12 song show in Glasgow which seems impossible to prove. I know there are enough of us out there who will be able to keep our fingers on the pulse. As there's a fair amount of discussion circulating abou...

Re: Glasgow 13 October 1977

Thanks, Dave - I wonder where the info comes from sometimes for the setlists for the wiki. I'm not doubting the integrity of those who submit them but I thought I was in touch with all the major collectors of live material and then these variations crop up !
Does Martin have any info on this, John ?

Glasgow 13 October 1977

I'll be uploading the recording of his show nearerthe time but , on investigation, I've discovered my recording only had 10 songs and lacks the last 3 as listed on the wiki . Does anyone have a recording of the complete show that I could beg, borrow or steal ?

Radio Clyde archive

Did anything ever become of the Radio Clyde archive which I think was discovered and the prospect of rare items being released in 2003 ? There was talk of sessions and live concerts being made available through Universal but I've not seen anything from any group since that time . I wondered how many...

So Far Richard Groothuizen book for sale

I've just been informed by the seller that a copy of this book is available on eBay. At my recommendation, it has a starting bid of £19.99, I believe and I thought it was worth at least that due to its rarity and the fact that the money goes to a deserving charity - helping with children's poverty. ...
