You sure about that? Trust came out only one month after Sandinista (January 1981 vs. December 1980).

Since Trust was completed in November, Elvis would have needed an advance copy of Sandinista.

The version of "Big Nothing" on the soundtrack (the old version of the soundtrack, anyway) is unique because it lacks the Sy Richardson voiceover. The weird thing is that with all those new Pogues songs, the track listing is missing one of their songs from the original album ("The Good, The Bad & Th...

Interesting to see a release date reported so early.

However, I'm a little suspicious since September 23 is a Thursday (and US release dates are on Tuesdays). September 23 was also the date when North was released last year.

Re: The Delivery Man

The 'new' songs Elvis has been performing the last few shows have actually been knocking around for a while as part of a 'song cycle' called The Delivery Man . He and Steve did some of them first back in late 1999. But the songs played recently were not among those played in 1999. I don't think it'...

For some reason Goodbye Cruel World has replaced King of America in the next batch, so it will be Almost Blue , Goodbye Cruel World , and Kojak Variety . The last announced release date was April, but that's beginning to look overly optimistic. Here's my latest plug for the "Elvis Costello on Rhino"...

Since it was previously reported that The Who was using Greg Lake on bass, I'm guessing they're not limiting themselves to a single bass player on the new album.

Sad to say, I failed to get tickets to the House of Blues show (that'll teach me to borrow the credit card number without also getting the security code). I'm hoping to find someone with extras, although with the concert so soon in the future, I'm afraid the odds aren't good.

I'd like to believe that the February release date is accurate. But in light of the fact that they've previously been announced as coming in April, I think it's far more likely that John's information is outdated than that they've been moved up two months.

I'd love to be wrong.
