Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Boston, MA, Wang Theatre , November 10 2018

Just got back from the show. Here’s the set list to the best of my recollection: This Year's Girl Honey, Are You Straight or Are You Blind? Clubland [with "I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside"] Don't Look Now Burnt Sugar Is So Bitter Green Shirt Photographs Can Lie [with "The Look of ...

Re: You Tube: Elvis Costello and The Attractions live in Paris (1979)

BA, you know I’m just kidding. I believe what happened was when Chorus TV wanted to broadcast, they were not allowed in 1979 to show the material that was unreleased at that point (Opportunity, B Movie, High Fidelity...). So the second broadcast was after the release of Get Happy!! and it was okay (...

Re: You Tube: Elvis Costello and The Attractions live in Paris (1979)

June 1, 1979 Dave I still want to doubt that. But, i guess the editor was not fine with the newest Armed Forces and the yet unreleased Get Happy!! songs. Seems he was happy to make it seem like only first two lps existed thusfar. ba, why do you doubt me? :cry: Don't you know I'm an EC encyclopedia?...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Paramount Theatre , Asbury Park , NJ , November 6th 2018

Yes, lyrically as well as musically. I like to think myself to be a good judge of whether it is the same version only played solo OR if it is markedly unlike first take we know...just your opinion please. Yeah, this was debated in July under the Look Now: New Album Announced Thread, but the lyrics ...

It's a big improvement, makes it a highlight of the set again.

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, DAR Constitution Hall , Washington DC, November 4th 2018

And A Face in the Crowd had a whole new introduction, a new stanza, not the same melody. More like what used to be called a "verse" in songs for musicals. Dave Well stated Dave. I have no real 'MUSICALS' knowledge. But, i would agree this new part is a somewhat different melody to the tun...

Early on at this show at the Daughters of the American Revolution Constitution Hall, Elvis described the venue as the "Tear Off Your Own Head, It's A Doll Revolution Constitution Hall."

[quote=Costello rightly gave his band members credit throughout the show, which ended traditionally with “Pump It Up” and “(What’s So Funny ’Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding,” the latter sounding more emphatic and urgent than ever, what with the election in three days, and the peace-sign gesturi...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, DAR Constitution Hall , Washington DC, November 4th 2018

Now this time, Photographs Can Lie SHOULD be listed. Not sure when it was done, first half of show, and it did include the Look of Love snippet at the start. Also, Under Lime was prefaced with the first verse of Jimmie Standing in the Rain, and a little spoken intro in between. And A Face in the Cro...

"Photographs Can Lie," the latter which included a snippet of Bacharach & Hal David's "The Look of Love," were delivered with delicacy and grace at the Hard Rock. Anyone know where "Photographs Can Lie" belongs in the setlist? It wasn't played. Like Stripping Paper...

Re: US TOUR DATES

Buffalo was cancelled, like Phoenix.

But Atlantic City and Chicago were added, creating new 3 night runs.

Go figure.
