Re: My Darling Clementine working with Steve Nieve on an album of EC covers , 2019?

I’m having trouble with the flash card from my recording so can’t do a comprehensive set list and I’m not sites how to generate a digital recording from it though it does still play ok on the recorder. There were a smattering of Talk Talk songs which really didn’t have the strength of the Costello s...

I’m in my hotel high above the bridge having driven around most of south Yorkshire with no WiFi trying to find my way - left home at 7:50 this morning. I’ll be there with Cocktail Muderess and Spirit of Curiosity

Re: Elvis Costello & The Imposters: Purse EP (Record Store Day)

Poor deportee wrote I just want to say that the Imposters sound utterly sublime on 'The Lovers that Never Were' in particular. You hear this and you kind of have to wonder why he doesn't do more recording with this group; they've got a depth and maturity now that deserves more than a once-per-decade...

Thanks, Neil, it was my brother who's probably just got the edge. I always threatened Dad that I'd play - he was really worried I would because I'm so crap compared to them !

Re: 40 Years Ago

As there's now a lull in live performances from 40 years ago, can I make a plea from any UK fans for any details of the 1980 (anywhere but here!) tour of towns in the U.K. off the beaten ( to the punch) track. It was reviewed in the first instance by the major music weeklies at Runcorn (!) but apart...

Re: My Darling Clementine working with Steve Nieve on an album of EC covers , 2019?

I think the big fear for all keyboard players is losing the flexibility of the fingers or missing notes on a regular basis. My father passed away in February having spent over 75 years playing the church organ at a really decent standard but gave up unannounced lat Palm Sunday. Looking back he compl...

Kees - the legend of Going Through the Motions with Richard G !!!!!

Re: Elvis Costello & The Imposters: Purse EP (Record Store Day)

The Lovell girls sing on Down On The Bottom and the other three tracks have just a multi tracked Elvis providing backing so no Kitten or Briana.

Arrived this morning, didn't read the label and thought how dirge-like the opening was until I read it was 45 rpm rather than 33 1/3rd :oops: It's great, there are 2 songs that are largely familiar to anyone who attended the any of the later Detour concerts, the Johnny Cash song that got an occasion...

Re: 40 years ago today, April 1, 1979 my story

I can understand ( and almost agree with) the principle of taking away someone's recording equipment at concerts, particularly in Elvis' case when new, unrecorded and possibly un-copyrighted material might end up in circulation but I'm not so sure why photographs taken by fans on small "instama...

Re: Bruce Thomas co-presenting radio show tomorrow, April 20 2019

The Larkin Poe gesture suggests he either notes Elvis' choice of support or has been secretly following the Detour gigs - though I didn't see him at any I attended -unless he was incognito. Still nice to see Man Utd have restored themselves to their early season form just for him :wink:

One of the problems for UK fans is that the postage plus customs taxes invariable double the cost of importing any vinyl ( in particular) from the U.S. Case in point has been the cost of the Look Now coloured vinyl editions -and I got ripped off by purchasing the "deluxe" coloured vinyl on...
