Blue, the feeling is mutual, my friend. You have an appreciation and knowledge of music far beyond your years. Add to that your talent for articulating these thoughts and you've got a promising career as a music journalist. Keep up the good work.

Great job, gang! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Very professional layout, and Blue's review of Loretta Lynn is right on target.

The best of luck to you all with this worthy venture.

The snippets sound great, many thanks to our friend, Stormwarning. This is the way I like Elvis- direct and soulful, with his unique phrasing forming melodies of its own! And all of this from 30-second clips! I can't wait to hear the full album. The band sounds great, with Steve's ORGAN being domina...

King Hoarse, nothing would please me more. Elvis spoke of a proposed live boxed set back during the Ryko reissues, but that was a decade ago and it still hasn't seen the light of day. Of the hundreds of shows recorded, they tend to pull tracks from the same handful to this day. Geez, if Elvis doesn'...

Thanks, ANCT. You made my day!! Only Elvis Costello can make me buy his albums over and over, and beg for more!

I don't care how thoroughly you've followed the man for the last quarter-century, he still has unknown songs tucked away in those endless vaults. Come on, July 20!

Otis, every bio I've read on EC backs you up. Nevertheless, I'd be interested in hearing some of Mary's radio shows. I wonder if anybody has collected them on tape or elsewhere.

Pip, that's very good. It's like the human conscience talking to itself, and like it always does, trying to justify itself. It brings to mind Elvis' "Deep Dark Truthful Mirror" but on an even darker level. Nice work indeed.

ARGYBARGY is my favorite hour by Squeeze, too! Pure pop from start to finish. I have a fondness for COOL FOR CATS and EAST SIDE STORY as well. I own every LP through SWEETS FROM A STRANGER, and there's good songs to be found on all of 'em. After that, I've only heard FRANK, which wasn't bad. I need ...

I just noticed that this poster was commissioned in 2003. So, as cool as it is, it never existed until now. It's done in the style of posters by Kozik, Ward Sutton, Alan Forbes, etc. I'm not sure who the artist is. Very nice work, regardless.
