Re: Are there 3 better album tracks in a row...

from "The Very Best of Elvis Costello" :D ]

Almost Blue
I Want You
God Give Me Strength

other than that I agree with Painted from Memory, ATUB, and King of America :D

Re: Steve Nieve - The Daily Improvisation

these are great! Many thanks to Steve for sharing these.
Muriel's "Indoor Fireworks" brought a big smile to my face (it was the French accent I think), London's Brilliant Parade was excellent, loved "Perfect Day", haven't watched #4 yet...

He played there back in 2010 as part of a "wind energy" event....it was weird. You could tell most of the attendees weren't familiar with EC, but they definitely left with an appreciation of his talent. It was a good show. http://www.elviscostello.info/wiki/index.php/Concert_2010-05-24_Dal...

Re: Essential bootlegs/ Getting started with boots/ General advice

This one is my favorite, and a great representation of the Costello/Nieve tours. I think it was a Canadian radio broadcast so the sound is fantastic. http://www.elviscostello.info/wiki/index.php/Bootleg:_On_The_Road_Again The set list looks great. Is that bootleg available somewhere for download? S...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters , Thackerville, OK, WinStar World Casino,   Nov. 23 2018

I agree with Richard on the venue....just a large ballroom with rows of chairs. It seemed like half the casino guests were smokers. At 1 1/2 hrs and only 1 encore, it's probably the shortest EC shows I've seen. Looked like Winstar only sold about 50-60% of the seats. I looked on their web site the d...

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...

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.

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.
