Re: Elvis to do MAIT show with Clover, San Fran, Nov. 8 '07

On You Tube, there are now pro-shot videos in black and white from one of the shows. They seem to be legitimately posted by the Richard Delone charity. So far they have posted the first 3 songs, maybe they plan to keep going! Wonder if there will be a DVD release? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztZc...

Re: New TV show: "Spectacle: Elvis Costello with ..."

Reading Cheryl's notes reminded me of a couple more things. EC prefaced the playing of "Sulfur to Sugar Cane" by relating how on the Dylan tour, he would alter the last verse for each town they played, as I'm sure folks who saw that tour last year remember. Last night, he did a long last v...

Re: New TV show: "Spectacle: Elvis Costello with ..."

Thanks to the post by always dancing, I was able to get a ticket from the Roseanne Cash website and finally could attend a Spectacle taping. The ticket they gave me wasn't very good, but a few minutes before showtime they needed to fill empty seats within camera range, so they plucked some of the fo...

Changes to Official EC site ($$$)

They've updated the site at elviscostello.com, finally adding lyrics, songs from 30:10, and downloads. The big change is that there's a members only thing now, and you have to pay $35 a year to be a member! No more free presale privileges.
Kind of irritating, ain't it??

Re: 'Elvis Costello (Icons of Pop Music)' - book due April '08

I picked this up after John let us know where it could be acquired, and I enjoyed it quite a lot. Especially the analysis of the music and the playing. That syllable discussion is a great example of something you wouldn't think about unless someone went to the trouble to point it out.

I can't get any of these to play. The computer says they have a .wmv extension that doesn't match the contents of the file, and then Windows player says it doesn't have the right codecs. Gibberish to me. Any suggestions??

In Praise of Davey Faragher

Last night's Ryman show prompts me to again praise Davey for his ability to add background and harmony vocals to the show. For these new Momofuku songs, until the extra players came out for the encores, it was Davey's lot to have to do all the background vocals the "supergroup" do on the n...

Well, I was going to post my impressions of the show last night at the Ryman but Mr. Richey's account hits it right on the head. I can't say this is the best show I've seen Elvis do in a while, cause I thought the Emmylou tour and the Toussaint tour were fantastic shows, but this is the best EC and ...

I was one of the lucky ones who got the LP from MusicDirect back on the 17th, and I've played it several times now (and taped it for the car). Have to admit, first impression was bad. Thought the production was terrible, didn't like a lot of the songs at first. But I'm very bad on first listens, ver...

While thumbing through some old clippings looking for signs of Phil Lynott, I happened upon this assessment of Elvis' appearance from Lou Reed, chosen by the NME as one of it's "quotes of the year" in 1978: "I believe in glamour. Tom Waits? Why would I want to listen to him? He's ugly...

I predict that if they do a "deluxe" Get Happy reissue with a live album, this will be the show they will use (hoepfully more complete than the radio broadcasts).

Re: Contempoary reviews of Elvis/Washington '78

Sabreman asked: Was this broadcast by WHFS?

Yes. I missed the initial live broadcast because I was there. They re-aired it in 1979 and I got it on tape. (but they cut Blame it on Cain, for some reason.)

BTW, that drunken guy yelling was right over my shoulder!
