Re: New Elvis/Burt Bacharach songs!!

After the Edinburgh gig, Elvis said that Burt came to the recording studios for the new album and brought his case with him and worked with the Imposters and Elvis on two songs,being totally professional and calling Elvis out for not singing the line properly. Elvis re-enforced the idea that this al...

Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Plymouth (England), June 28, 2018 - postponed

I didn't get a phone call from the Pavilions but I did get a couple of emails and a text message on Tuesday to confirm the postponement. I drove into Plymouth with Mrs Sulky and went to the box office to see if I could "retain" my row B seats for any future gig and this was confirmed so I'...

Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Edinburgh (Scotland), June 24, 2018

The Johnny Cash song comes after Party girl and the lyrics do NOT tie in with those of the song I'll Still Love You but Elvis does repeat the phrase "If You Still Love Me" rather a lot - any clues/ideas anyone (ANCT !! :wink: )

Re: Elvis and the Imposters European Tour 2018

Thanks BA , as always health and well being are of greater importance than merely having to forgo the cost of a train ticket. I’d rather see Elvis in fine form, which he had been even up until his last night in Newcastle but he looked worn and frail - not words I’d ever associate with him - and talk...

My excuse is, it’s easier to upload a quick clip from a phone than to edit one complete wav file fir a concert but the cancellations mean Cardiff, Edinburgh and Newcastle should be up on a certain currency website by the weekend !

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Newcastle upon Tyne, June 25, 2018

SPOILER ALERT. !! After a pretty dynamic gig with lots of variations in the set list , Elvis seemed to have got a slight creak in his voice , apparent on Shipbuilding and also slightly in Alison but not so much in the finale of PLU and PIU but when we met him backstage he was only speaking in a whis...

Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Edinburgh (Scotland), June 24, 2018

Perhaps the most important aspect of another stunning show was Elvis’ enthusiasm for the performance of the Imposters and his need to record them at this particular stage. He was extremely friendly and chatty after the show and posed for numerous photos and talked excitedly about Burt Bacharach comi...

I wonder why people don't rant about Dylan the same way - after all, he's been barely able to carry a tune in a basket since the late 90s but everyone loves to go and see him. It must be something about Elvis that the average Joe feels he can now have a go at - if only Jake were here to defend him !...
