Re: Elvis plays Burlington, Nov. 2 2013

No, for sure. He opened acoustic and played that way until Toledo, at which point he played an electric sitting down. He sat for about 4 songs. I may be confused but I think it was electric from there to the end of the main set.

Everyday I Write The Book was dedicated to Ron Sexsmith, his second favorite Canadian, for showing him how to play the song anew. The song referred to above was Jimmy Standing in the Rain, which he said reminded him of his g...

Re: "Brutal Youth" finally getting a vinyl issue!

I’m not normally a shill for Amazon but their preorder guarantee is pretty great. Once your preorder is in, if the price drops before it is released, you get the lower price, and sometimes their price drops to a pretty low level (like the Smashing Pumpkins 4 record box I got for $38). Just keep trac...
