This is really really tough. My attempt is similar to Sweetest Punch's and follows the same basic philosophy of going mainly with the obvious choices. The problem is that once you'd made the obvious choices, there's hardly any room left for personal favorites! DISC ONE [~79:30]: 1. Less Than Zero [3...

An odd aspect of the new DVD is this shot from "You Little Fool": http://www.geocities.com/ned3705/screen6.jpg On the '90s VHS release, you could see logos for Coca-Cola and Pepsi in the areas which are blurred on the new version. I'm not sure if the blurring is entirely new though. I know MTV gener...

I'm curious... Had anyone seen this video before? I sure hadn't.

EC's remark that they "scrapped the video, particularly after the American record company Columbia decided to release the song as a single" strikes me as slightly ambiguous.

Uncut , Sept. '05 (his bitching on the commentary about loathed ex-bassist Bruce Thomas is a treat) BTW, this bit in Uncut's review is simply false. EC doesn't "bitch" about Bruce in the commentary. I am well aware of EC's various complaints about Bruce elsewhere, but there is no negativity about B...

Entertainment Weekly's review said it was "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," which is, of course, not an EC original. I don't know if there's any indication that EC's version was her inspiration.

Kojak Variety, actually, but I agree with the rest. I can confirm that "That's How You Got Killed Before" was slated for the bonus disc by February 2004.

There was a period of a few months in 2002 when it was a good site, with EC answering fan's questions and writing a tour diary, but then he apparently lost interest.

Will we ever get to hear the takes of "I Hope Your Happy Now" cut with the Keltner/Scheff/Froom lineup? EC says "We struggled through a few tentative takes, but it was useless." So maybe not, but I think he is holiding it for the next re-re-re-release. Spooky, if you haven't already bought this rei...
