Re: EC to release Secret, Profane and Sugarcane

Interesting stuff. As always, it's the little hints about next steps and future recordings that catch the eye. This is intriguing: 'I might record at least two more albums this year. When I say two more albums, I mean two more folios of recordings. Whether or not there's any more records to come out...

Re: "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!"

And thrice no. Good grief. The gritted-teeth, barely-tolerating-it look on his face throughout The One Show was enough. I'd like to be a fly on the wall if he were approached to appear on IACGMOOH.

Re: Download-Only Elvis?

Although probably worth noting that - on UK Itunes, at least - the Colbert album is album-only, so you can't download those two tracks individually. It's difficult to tell from the 30-second samples how much you can actually hear of EC on each one. Bearing in mind I'll try and get hold of virtually ...

Re: IMPERIAL BEDROOM New clothes ...

DPM/DPAM/whatever is of UK birth but lives in the US, so he doesn't really have a lot of choice about being an expat. He is undoubtedly an egotist, but again, that kind of comes with the territory if you intend to make a living from singing your own songs in public. And he certainly indulges himself...

Re: Worst EC songs (originals only)

Never cared much for 'The Stamping Ground', and I have to be in the right mood (ie a bit pissed) for 'Broken'. Otherwise I think I love 'em all.

Don't panic. The "iTunes Originals" is at the moment only available in the USA. As far as I can see, it's not yet available in Europe, Japan or Australia. Let's wait a few more days (or weeks); it will problably become available soon in the rest of the world. Fair enough, let's give it a ...

That's Apple, not Elvis, you should be blaming. No, I'm afraid I think that's a cop-out. We're not talking about some naive young band who've just signed up to a contract they didn't even read, where all the decisions are with the recording company. This is a media-savvy, opinionated and clued-in g...

Update. You can get to see them the way I described, but you can't buy them if you are in the UK, only if you're in the US. Nice one, Elvis. Guess this is where we part company after 30 years. It's been fun.

Which, to be fair, you could have (legally) downloaded and made your own copy of Rock and Roll Music from your own CDs? I don't feel there's any big rip-off going on here.

River in Reverse DVD songs

Apologies for creating another RIR thread but I couldn't see any discussion of this in the main one... I plan to transfer the audio tracks from the DVD for any that are different enough to be worth hearing, but which are duplications of what's on the CD and which are not?
