Re: Elvis plays New Orleans, LA on 12 March, 2015

Fabulous show with Elvis in excellent voice. The Rolls is indeed Allen's. He's had it for years....it used to be parked in front of my apartment when AT would grocery shop.

Re: Wise Up: Thought Remixes And Reworks

I like this version of Tripwire just as much as the one on WUG. Great stuff. This is a remix album I can get behind.

I believe best song is a songwriter's award whereas best record also takes into account the recording, production, and performance.

Re: Elvis solo Easton Pa Nov 23, 2013

This was the one show I thought I had a possibility of getting to and didn't. That setlist is probably my dream setlist thus far. Sigh. The only iteration of EC I haven't seen is EC completely solo. This is killing me!

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

After nearly a month with the album, I am just as enthusiastic as I was initially. While I'd agree that the sound is more consistent than some of Elvis' other albums, it's a sound I really like. I find myself really getting into the vocal performance here, with Cinco Minutos, Viceroy's Row, and Trip...

Amazon in the U.S. EC, Roots catalog sale

Just noticed that you can pick up mp3 downloads of EC's entire catalog as well as the Roots entire catalog for $5.99 each. Wise Up Ghost is number 8 on Amazon album sales in the U.S. this morning.

My deluxe copy just arrived via UPS in the U.S. at 7:00 pm EDT. Getting ready to hear bonus tracks for the first time. Crazy about this album and the Brooklyn Bowl stuff.

Five complete listens, love it. Stone classic for me. Some of the music is incredibly exciting. The pocket they are in on Sugar Won't Work is just fabulous for me. Definitely a taste of my beloved Meters from New Orleans on that one. Agree with some of the above reviews/comments about Elvis' incredi...

As a victim of the federal disaster that was Hurricane Katrina and a long time resident (and lover) of New Orleans, this album obviously has a very special place in my heart.

I drove from New Orleans to Oxford, MS to see one of the two preview shows at Proud Larry's. What a great evening, seeing EC and the Imposters in such an intimate venue. The next morning I ran across Steve Nieve in the local record store and he kindly signed a ticket stub for me. I have great memori...

Re: 40 DAYS OF ELVIS COSTELLO: A Countdown To WISE UP GHOST

Well done! If there is one Costello tune that is worthy of being singled out, this is it. Probably my second favorite EC song ever. The live version from the EC/SN box set is my favorite version. I hadn't seen Greil Marcus' comments before, so thanks for that.
