Palomino 16 Feb 1979

Elvis Costello And The Attractions at the Palomino Club, Hollywood 16 Feb 1979 I've recently uploaded this to dime, taking out the tracks that were apparently reissued on the Get Happy and Almost Blue Rhino reissues. However there seems to be some debate as to whether or not there were 2 shows playe...

Did the only 2 Ec shows this year so 5th July in Liverpool and 7th July at The Tower Of London.
And I have the feeling these were Elvis' last gigs here for a long time ( or until the child maintenance orders kick in !)

Like BY, the bass swings it for me and the consistency of songwriting and performing from Opportunity to High Fidelity has nothing to match it in any performer's repertoire - even Sgt Pepper had Fixing A Hole half way through ! After that B&C, Trust, IB,PTC,,AB,KOA, GCW with Spike bringing up th...

Really hard choice between ATUB, MLAR and BY. ATUB is such a mature album but there is an element of sobriety about the Attractions that seems to undermine the performances. BY, like B&C seems much more of a bastard of an album and has, of course, the sublime bass lines of Mr. B.T. on 13 Steps a...

I don't know what Elvis thinks or feels,. I'm sure he hides much of his true feelings in even the most "open" of songs. However, I do believe the man who wrote "I want to bite that hand that feeds me, I want to bite that hand so badly" is now slobbering and fawning over those sam...

Configurations

And what about the Live Stiffs, like Neat Neat Neat with Davey Payne on Sax and the extra drummer seen playing Detectives in the Live Stiffs film ? Oh and the start of the 2nd US tour in May 1978 when Bruce was still cut and the bassist from Clover played for afew gigs (John Ciambotti ?)

Now all the people who know VG will smile because they are assured he won't let a good pun (or a bad one) pass without hammering home the point. At least he didn't whistle any Sergio Leone tunes (I bet I've spelt that wrong) when Mr Eastwood came out. And just to whet your appetite, guess who wound ...

I've been told by Neil J that we're to pick up our tickets on the door (which is a bit of a scary prospect) but I'm leaving quite early in the afternoon to give me enough time to hide the car and ensure we've got the tickets OK. As for comments about verbal gymnastics, let his posts be my evidence !...

As the uploader of this I'd say the Boston recording is better than the Columbus recording from last week, but as always you pays your money (or obviously not in this case) and you takes your choice. :o

:o I was completely in agreement with Elvis about this album - most of the critics slated it but, if you're in the right mood and you listen to the vinyl version late at night with a suitably potent drink in one hand, it's a killer. Ok it's never going to be Blood And Choclate but that's the great t...
