First I've heard of the Hollywood thing. Did they have the ceremony already?

Re: ba LIVE EC songlist updated 10/19

Is the June 1991 MSG NYC show the only time The Other Side of Summer was played as a waltz? I can't find any recording of that show and would be interested to hear this version. The waltz version was introduced at the beginning of the MLAR tour on the West Coast, and was in fact played on MTV Unplu...

Re: Elvis writes about Linda Ronstadt

Very glad to see this graceful essay from Elvis. Ronstadt had undeniable vocal chops. My mother liked the Nelson Riddle collaborations but fell in love with Canciones de Mi Padre. One of my fondest memories is taking her to see Linda’s live version of those songs, with costumes and set designs like ...

Re: Elvis and The Imposters play Hershey, PA October 24, 2019

What a gas to hear Crawling to the USA!


Also happy to hear No Hiding Place, Charm School.

Elvis was in much better vocal form tonight, probably the best I’ve heard him sing since 2016.

Sound was pretty good too, still thunderous bass but pretty well balanced.

A very enjoyable evening

Re: Elvis receives Lifetime Achievement Honor from Americana Music Association, Sept 11 2019

My favorite moment was in T Bone's speech. He was describing seeing Elvis at the Paradise in Boston in Dec 1977, and at the end of a list of descriptive adjectives, he concluded with "His aim was........ long pause while you say he can't possibly invoke the cliche.... ...pandemonium." Perf...

Re: Elvis Costello & The Imposters 7” Look Now vinyl box set All orders will now ship by FRIDAY, MAY 17

so mine shipped on the 16th from Batavia, IL. Four days later, it's made it all the way to Chicago! Delviery expected by the 25th, 9 days after it was shipped. I'm sure it will be in pristine condition.

I don't think there will be 4 new songs, I think I waited in line and bought them last month and I don't really have a working turntable. So I'd like not to be messed around when it comes t...

Re: EC/Imposters and Blondie co-headline 13-date US tour, July-August 2019

A little surprised at all the excitement over this mini-tour. Given the co-headline setup, EC's set is sure to be short and greatest-hits-y, and I'd imagine he and the Imps will be the opening band on half the dates. I particularly expect that to be the case in NYC, Blondie's (and my) hometown, and...

FWIW, I also think National Ransom is a late period EC masterpiece, and I think that if you hold up LN & NR together they are two arguments for the strength of 21st Century Costello's artistic output.

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Memphis, TN, Orpheum Theatre , Nov. 19th 2018

There is a consistent problem with the bass and drums being way too loud. It depends on where you sit, people always say it's fine in the balcony or way back by the sound desk. But if you're in the first 10 rows, it's a problem. I found the mix better this tour than last, but two of my seats were ba...
