Re: Elvis & The Imposters play Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham, March 2, 2020

Something along the lines of The times are changing And peace on earth has come to pass Although the war is raging They say each war will be the last Said the boys back at Enniskellen There's a road block army does all the killing And the BBC will beg forgiveness... Then I can't get the last line a...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham, March 2, 2020

Any transcription of the new words in Oliver’s Army, intrigued by the reference to Enniskillen?

Re: Elvis and The Attractions, Montreux 1986 on TV

I think that clip was shown on the BBC at the time. I’ve never seen a complete set list for that concert.

Re: Elvis Costello OBE

Erey, there’s a bit more to the Honours system. Out going Prime Ministers can directly nominate candidates, a convention not always observed but one that has led to accusations of cronyism - if you google Lavender List, Cash for Honours you’ll see what I mean. Mrs May may be preparing hers as I writ...

Re: Elvis Costello OBE

Very eloquent debate. Just a small point Hawksmoor on your comment on the “Prince William” line from Little Palaces, I always took that as a reference to William Prince of Orange. The lyric goes on to reference the Pope, and E.C. would be well aware that different sides of the religious divide in Li...

Re: Elvis Costello OBE

I wonder if he put his own name forward or, if not, who did. You don’t simply receive a nomination. Your name is put forward and then considered. I can understand the hypocritical arguments. I just hope Elvis is not wheeled out to sing Oliver’s Army in the same way as Macca always is to do Hey Jude...

The Beatles eps had similar covers - white band at top with name of song(s) and the word mono, in lower case, top right

Usually they broadcast one track from the session. This one seems to pop up every few months.

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

We could probably subdivide radio broadcasts to include pre-FM; and soundboard to include those assisted listening device and in ear monitor thingies. Compilations can be fun (I may have had a hand in Four eyes one vision) - I especially like the media blitz ones that popped up, e.g. bringing togeth...
