Re: My Aim Is True Survivor (Round 8)

I'm afraid I'm with Neil on this one, my second Elvis purchase after "This Year's Model" and it felt so tame after the 1978 musical pyrotechnics. I'm also convinced that an early purchase of a bootleg El Mocambo also coloured my opinion of MAIT because every song from that album was blown...

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. Some evenings it is just great, and by having this - as I see it - family gathering to play and have fun works great. We have got some nice EC ...

Re: Elvis & Attractions, Hope and Anchor 1980

The KBFH tape runs as per the wiki setlist except that I Can't Stand Up, The Beat and He'll Have To Go were never broadcast and are apparently unavailable anywhere. the BBC broadcast included Chelsea, Mystery Dance and PLU in their version but no-one seems to have the original recording except for ...

Re: Elvis & Attractions, Hope and Anchor 1980

Just to say the 40 year retrospective ground to a sorry halt last night when the combined recording of the KBFH and BBC broadcasts were ( rightly so, I guess) banned from being torrented. Seems a real shame this couldn't have been released as a complete concert a la Holywood High reissue in Elvis' ...

Re: What Next For Elvis after A Face In The Crowd ?

I am so gutted that apart from the far more important matter of people losing their lives, this virus has denied us a new Elvis/Nick Lowe album! Grraaaargh!!! It would've been in the can by now! From what I understood, Sebastian Krys was going to fly in for the session but with the travelrestrictio...

Re: New release based on one of Elvis Costello and the Attractions most celebrated albums!!

If you want to start thinking about Spanish-speaking singers who could be involved with the project, I would start with Vega. She has worked with Sebastian Krys and Elvis before (on her 2017 album Non Ho L'Età ). On Monday 27 January she tweeted this: MOOT We can add David Hidalgo of Los Lobos and ...
