Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Cardiff, June 17th 2018

Thanks

Wish I'd known you were behind me I would have shared a beer with you afterwards.

As for the recording, that would be a wonderful memento.

Cheers

Cardiff Bay. A new venture for me I must confess. I had been to Cardiff before but not the waterfront area in which the excellent Millenium Centre was situated. A Welsh friend of mine had suggested that the Bay was "lush", which I believe means in modern day parlance, "rather splendid...

Re: New website

I don't like it. The fact that it looks like all of their other websites is the problem. It's not personalised enough. It's just the same tired old template, concentrating on ticket sales and merchandise. If it's a work in progress, fine. If EC gets involved with it, as he did the other one, using i...

Re: A Face In The Crowd: new musical

The 19th song would be “Adieu Paris (L’Envie Des Etoiles”).

Wasn't it suggested that he had recently written this song for the production?

Re: Mystery songs on ASCAP site

The ASCAP songs are now divided between Costello & MacManus so you now need 2 searches instead of one.

OK. So "Entangled" is part of the Il Sogno suite so that clears that one up.

Re: Mystery songs on ASCAP site

I'm wondering whether we can take everything that the ASCAP site says at face value. I've been looking at this in some detail and have found quite a few anomalies. For example.

Re: Elvis (solo ) plays Jackson,WY , April 13th 2016

The song "Vital Checks" is most certainly called "Vitajex". One look at the Wikipedia entry for the film "A Face In the Crowd" reveals this as part of the plot. It was a radio "jingle" sung by the lead character Lonesome Rhodes to promote some male tonic.

Perhaps "A Case Of You" was also included as Joni is, by all accounts, lying in a hospital bed and still unwell.
