Re: Elvis/Imposters/Spinning Songbook, Chicago, May 15, 2011

For those who are wondering, you can see Crazy Black Dress Chick (CBDC) in all her glory here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c58uJ2Tm81U&feature=youtu.be&hd=1 Thank you CraigatCoF! I'm a fan of CBDG. But what's with the women in blue? Did she come straight from yoga class?

Re: pair for Toronto; June 23

Sold the pair in row C.

Will probably sell the pair in EE if somebody makes me an offer but I'm still considering going to Toronto (and then driving back to see the Ottawa show). Any clue if the songbook will still be spinning in June or is that Revolver only?

Re: Elvis and the Imposters, Ottawa Jazz Fest June 24, 2011

OK, this is much better now. The Jazz Fest is selling something called Platinum Seating. The first 4 rows in front of the stage are reserved for these premum seats. I called the office and said this was new to me at an event where the rest of the venue would be general admission standing but I was a...

And there is a possibility I'll have a pair in row EE in section 5 to sell as well. If you are interested, send me a PM. These are presale tickets and I don't have t...

Re: 2 tone

Yeah, $125 is high. If you keep looking on eBay, they come up fairly often. You should be able to get a copy for about $50. That's still a crap load of money for a single that was originally given away but for $125 you should be able to get 2 or 3. BTW, do people know if this orignally came in a 2 T...

Sort of good news for me in a way. I really can't afford to go to New York. Now there are only VIP and upper balconys left so I am not tempted.

Still, thanks for posting the alert.

Re: Dedicated National Ransack Thread

Some kind of National Ransack enquiry I suppose? I have found Vintage Vinyl to be pretty good. I already have my Black Friday mailorder in hand and I'm in Canada. For whatever reason, their system is not set up to include international shipping costs when you place your order online so they send an ...

Re: ebay el mocambo ep and other stuff

I used to have a tape of this once upon a time. When Elvis played the El Mocombo, it was broadcast on CHUM FM. The promo-only LP didn't have the "Nick Lowe" encore but CHUM FM did broadcast it that night.

One question : does it ever happen that an album, officially to be released on a Monday, appears in shops at the weekend before ? I'm asking because a friend of mine currently living in UK is going to visit me next week, but he's got a plane on Sunday, 24th of October. I wonder if there is any chan...

Apologies if this has appeared elsewhere already, but a Notice on Elvis Costello.com says that a single version of "I lost you" will be released internationally on 18 October. Nothing about what format, or any other tracks. Could be download only, or CD or vinyl... Anyone any more informa...

I just entered once. But I got a bunch of people here at work to enter as well - all I had to do was explain to them what I would do with a couple of 78s. Fingers crossed now.

CBS released 500 "official copies" of the El Mo recording - I know, 'cause I got one. Then it was widely bootleged.

I used to have a tape of the broadcast with the Nick Lowe encore but it's lost now.
