Re: Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff. . .

An entirely different ( and trite) interview compared to the Big Issue one !

Re: New Elvis/Burt Bacharach songs!!

Hey Neil, don't you think the Imposters might be a bit too "rocky" for PFM V2 - I'd rather have Burt's orchestrations and Steve's piano in this instance and the new Imposters album being like Momofuku ! And yes, you're right about Lovable - I hadn't absorbed those lyrics like I probably sh...

Re: Big Issue interview , May 2018

Doesn't "Lovable" qualify even if it is, as best, one of his slightest songs ?

Hawksmoor wrote I think this is a lovely interview, and makes me like Elvis (as a person) more than I have for a long time. I've always believed (and still do) that he is the single greatest performer/singer-songwriter of our generation, but everything I had seen, heard or read, for decades now real...

Nottingham 15 June 2018

My son has decided he wanted to join me for this Nottingham concert ( on a Friday night) so I've had to get 2 tickets together and my solo seat is now available, row K, cost price no booking fees etc ! Also, if anyone has a spare ticket for Newcastle which isn't going to strain my eyesight beyond re...

Re: Banal fanboy list no 475: Elvis songs that sound a bit like other Elvis songs

Doc wrote The intro to Waiting For The End of The World and the intro to Big Tears have a very similar structure. In a good way, of course. Before the Roundhouse gig in 2016 a few of us forum members were predicting what the first song would be - I boldly stated it would be WFTEOW and when the band ...

Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Nocturne Live - Oxfordshire (UK), June 16, 2018

Whilst the "two for one" doesn't bode well in terms of overall sales, at least it suggests Elvis will have recovered enough to perform at all the other shows. By the way, anyone got a decent Newcastle ticket -I may be forced to go to the balcony with my lapels looking at current seating av...

I was kind of hoping you’d report that somebody recorded the wedding reception gig, had it in their attic and wondered if you would like it as it was only gathering dust and they had no need for it anymore As if we'd tell you lot, if this was the case :roll: !

Re: It's official..."brilliant new album"

The reassuring comment for me is that Elvis says he wants it as an EC and The Imposters album which hopefully means he won't be using any of the "musical" songs on this !!

Only the way you sing them, Neil :roll:
So what are the other 474 lists then ? I’m not admitting to any OCD behaviour, just look on certain torrent sites !

Apart from getting in at the very start , all the decent seats have really disappeared.
