Really sorry John, can't help you there, in 1978 all Liverpool's grocery stores looked like that - but without those particular callow youths!

good luck with the search

Re: Elvis when you least expect it

Our son's wedding reception at Pepper Saint Ontiod, Isle of Dogs, recently. He and prospective bride had constructed two playlists. I was suprised and delighted to hear My Funny Valentine during the 'quiet bit'. Later came She and then Lipsick Vogue during the 'loud/dancing bit'.

Re: European tour 2017

Yeah - I'm lucky to have seen EC play with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in 2008, but this was a one off part of our Capital of Culture celebrations. I'm hoping UK Tour of Special Presentations would mean whole album run troughs, my pick would be Get Happy , but with my luck I'd get Nor...

Re: European tour 2017

I'm seriously thinking about lowering my standards and going to the Mudchester show. My guess is that EC won't Detour to Liverpool in 2017 as the Phil show was DVD'd here. More of a long shot is my hope that he'll return to Liverpool ( for a standing gig at the Mountford Hall please) with the Impost...

Elvis dedicated Down on the Bottom http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHaI6KsDSfQ to "everyone who's having a tough old go at it - this one's for you Phil..." It's highly likely that the Phil was Phil Hayes a long time pal. Here's a link http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/real-lives/pickets-p...

Hi David,
