Re: Elvis , 'Detour', plays Dallas, TX, October 11th 2106

Fantastic show! EC was in good voice & spirits. He played for a bit over 2 1/2 hours after a short warmup from Larkin Poe. My cell phone pics look very much like a poor/blurry version of many of these others...so I'll spare everyone. I think every show I've seen, EC plays "Every Day I Write...

Not thrilled it's outdoor...considering a 101 degree forecast.

Re: Probably alone on this one, but...

I too have always loved that song. ATUB was my first purchase long ago of the Rhino releases with the bonus CD. I always thought that it should have made the album. EC agreed in the liner notes.

When EC makes his way through Dallas in any form, I must go. Ticket prices are insane. Paid way too much for 4 person box seats... Steely Dan, Elvis Costello & The Imposters at Gexa Energy Pavilion Sunday, 07/19/2015, 7:00pm (Event time subject to change - Check local listings) 4 tickets ( $338....

Re: Elvis when you least expect it

While having a cocktail at a local Dallas breastaurant (Bikinis - http://www.bikinissportsbarandgrill.com/ ) , "I Hope Your Happy Now" played nice & loud. I'm pretty sure I was the only person in the place that truly appreciated it.

That is a great performance.

That's the only time that I've seen him sing the high octave chorus live.

Re: Which EC song means the most to you out of context ?

"God Give Me Strength" I'll be forever connected with this song. I listened to it maybe a 1000 times when I lost my mother back in 2003 after a long battle with cancer. The emotion that resonates through EC's voice & delivery on this song (and a lot of his work) gets me every time. Hea...

Re: 'The Return Of The Spectacular Spinning Songbook', Nov.

Loved hearing "All Grown Up" on the audio CD, wish it had made the DVD. On the DVD, I liked the Bangles singing "Tear Off Your Own Head" and "God Give Me Strength" (He didn't sing that one in the Nashville show I attended)
