Re: Your first meeting with Elvis

my first time...October 25, 1986 at the corner of 52nd Street and Broadway, about 7:00 p.m. the last night of COSTELLO SINGS AGAIN nyc. i was just hanging on the corner before entering, when the limo pulled up and E jumped out. About 20 or so others were there alongside me, perhaps in the know five ...

Anybody else have trouble redeeming Best Buy 45 offer?

As soon as I saw this free MY BRAVE FACE vinyl 45 with purchase of 2 cd FLOWERS IN THE DIRT set at Best Buy was NOT available in store, I got nervous. So, despite buying it Saturday...I waited four days to redeem figuring in case there were gremlins in the early days of redemption . I tried to do th...

Re: Elvis/El Mocambo - original/bootleg comparison

8) thanks John for confirming what I have always expected. Mine is real. But, I thought so all these years as I am a life long NY'ER who very often bought promo records. One of the perks of living in NYC and going to loads of record stores in the good old days. :lol:

Re: Less Than Zero was first released ,as Elvis's first single, 40 years ago this weekend, on March 25th 1977

This is the mix on the first batch of the vinyl single - it would be replaced by the mix that has featured on releases ever since. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZwq3eKf0xQ This begs a question that has been bothering me for a while... I know that this, the 'organ mix', has been reported for some...

Re: Paul McCartney: Flowers In The Dirt Archive Collection

Re: Elvis Solo, Festival Theatre, Edinburgh, Sat. 18 March, 2017

I like this set...great variation. Big handful of newish songs and rarely aired tunes, alongside ten that he's been relying on heavily as of late. Now, if he can keep switching up the more oblique ones these last few nights of DETOUR, he can remind himself and all of us, of November 2013 USA solo an...

Re: My Flame Burns Blue - vinyl debut on BLUE VINYL , June 2016

PS: I am almost certain that my copy of El Mocambo is a pirate one. Bought it cheap on eBay. It is not important for me. not terribly concerned which i have, these nearly 40 years later, but i do wonder sometimes. does anyone that have one of each feel like putting them side by side so the rest of ...

Re: On Oct. 18, 2017 the Little Kids Rock organization is honoring Elvis Costello for their annual event

Wheeeee, night before my birthday. I got a hunch, Elvis will be best pleased at this type of event honoring him, by performing most of the night. He is the consummate accompanist and will do well playing background to Weller, Young, Cave, Hynde, Macca, Springsteen, Malin, Adams, Parker and more. :lo...
