Re: Elvis Costello & The Imposters: Purse EP (Record Store Day)

How fast an old man forgets. I thought that one was 2 years ago and last year 2018 was the one with Macca cassette thingie that WAS a tough find. Still never got it. So THAT one was 2 years back???

Re: 40 years ago today, April 1, 1979 my story

Okay then, to fully share my 1979 concert going that i did reasonably well to capture upon film, i must go back to a couple that i missed sharing. First up, March 16, 1979 at NYU....the great PETER TOSH with a supreme band featuring SLY & ROBBIE and the guitarist extraordinaire MIKEY CHUNG. Non ...

Hmmm....if EC's doing a full set, I may have to reconsider. Of course you must GAS!! THIS is a dream double bill for any NYC EC fan, unless you out and out despise BLONDIE! (But, HOW COULD ANYONE?) Maybe not the best female singer ever, but her legacy alone alongside the first 5 lps merits ALL of o...

Re: EC/Imposters and Blondie co-headline 13-date US tour, July-August 2019

It’ll be interesting to see how Elvis plays this co-headlining tour ie will his competitive streak be out? I've seen 6:30 start times...which bodes well. AS LONG AS A THIRD ACT IS NOT ADDED. :evil: :evil: Blondie's great 75 to 90 minutes still puts Elvis on stage 8:15. CAN YOU SAY FULL 2 HOUR EC SH...

Re: EC/Imposters and Blondie co-headline 13-date US tour, July-August 2019

A little surprised at all the excitement over this mini-tour. Given the co-headline setup, EC's set is sure to be short and greatest-hits-y, and I'd imagine he and the Imps will be the opening band on half the dates. I particularly expect that to be the case in NYC, Blondie's (and my) hometown, and...

Re: 40 years ago today, April 1, 1979 my story

As i promised to share a photo, here is my favorite of the night. Sadly, my photos have aged poorly over the FORTY YEARS. Too bad i was not systematic to keep safe the negatives. Many tell me they would look much better made anew from them.

Re: EC/Imposters and Blondie co-headline 13-date US tour, July-August 2019

I hope this tour doesn't come to the UK as I'd think Blondie would get most of the attention and probably headline. I saw Blondie and the Pretenders co-headline a tour in Australia several years ago Frankly the Pretenders blew them away each night. If Elvis did have to do a co-headline tour with an...

Re: EC/Imposters and Blondie co-headline 13-date US tour, July-August 2019

I think Blondie graciously acquiesces to let ELVIS IS KING headline nightly. OF COURSE, they get their 75 minutes and encore each evening AND playfulness will abound. Blondie does many live covers: BEATLES, BOWIE, T REX, ROXY, STONES and more. A duet on TELEVISIONs SEE NO EVIL might be nice. I know ...

What a succession of acts to see, BA !! now, be honest, which act stirred you up the most ? :wink: I saw them at the Hope And Anchor in 1978 but left early - not sure if I had to catch a bus or whether I was disappointed - it certainly didn't stay long in my memory.
