Re: Steve Nieve - The Daily Improvisation

..... does anyone else find Muriel’s interruptions really irritating? "Really irritating" is a bit strong I think. The whole thing is what it is. So looking forward to the next 50..... This captures it for me. I've watched every one, and I think you just need to get into the feeling of be...

Re: Get Happy!! Survivor - Round 15 - Final Round

I'm happy to be running this poll, and I would very much like to continue this series with his other albums from his first ten years. (No offense to the albums after Blood and Chocolate.) Yes, thanks for doing this--torturous fun! Although I was hoping you might choose a latter-day album at some po...

Re: Get Happy!! Survivor - Round 1

This one's going to be tough, since I consider side one to be a perfect album side, and side 2 isn't very far behind. Just like with Imperial Bedroom, the first one is easy.

The others, well...

It was fun, but I too wouldn't mind a little more time during the rounds.

This was a hard one because after Little Savage, I really like all the songs.Tough to see Tears Before Bedtime fall so early.

Re: Top 3 Elvis Costello Album Covers?

I think it can be hard to separate one's feelings for the music from their appreciation of cover art. I've tried my best to do that here: (1) When I was Cruel (2) This Years Model (3) Brutal Youth These are definitely not my top 3 musically, but they're my favorite covers. That's so true. It's toug...

Re: Steve Nieve - The Daily Improvisation

Being busy with homeworking and kids I've not had time to catch up with these yet - any good tunes we should know about? Plenty. Today started with Black Sails in the Sunset and ended with Favorite Hour. Most every day we get a couple of Elvis tunes, some of Steve's solo songs/pieces, and some fun ...

Re: Steve Nieve - The Daily Improvisation

These have been wonderful. On the first day we got some of London's Brilliant Parade and April 5, among lots of other things. It's very kind of Steve to share his talents during our global isolation.

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

I remember quite clearly how painful it was back in 2010 for National Ransom to seem to disappear without hardly a trace of recognition and how that disappearance, I'm embarrassed to say, slowly eroded some of my own love of it (it really is time I pulled NR out again). I recall some speculation he...

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

I agree, that is probably one of the best EC interviews I've read. It contains so much insight into his thinking and - most importantly - into the music, and how he perceives it. Best of all is that he clearly seems interested in recording more music. The fact that he made such a splendid record se...
