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."

Re: EC/Imposters Hard Rock Atlantic City November 3, 2018

[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...

Re: EC/Imposters Hard Rock Atlantic City November 3, 2018

"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.

Re: 'He's Given Me Things'

It occured to me listening again tonight while walking my basset hound that her spurned lover might not be just a starving artist, but an artist who is painting either her portrait or a portrait of her and her new beau. Hence the command to 'cover the canvass...and never come back.' If this is righ...

Re: 'He's Given Me Things'

Agree that it will be a damn shame if the new tunes written for the PFM musical don’t all surface. The three featured on the new album are excellent. I think the person to whom He’s Given Me Things is sung is a portrait painter. I think the musical was going to be about the artist who painted the po...

BBC Headliners Podcast

iTunes has a new podcast today with a 32 minute BBC interview with Elvis. BBC Headliners, Radio 5. A bit more in depth than what we've heard recently, nice job.

Mr. Big Stuff?


Having now heard a tape of this show, I can confirm my guess was correct. He's doing a bit of Mr. Big Stuff (Jean Knight, 1971, Stax Records)
