There are no pressed copies of NORTH that do NOT contain the DVD. All copies will contain the DVD until the first pressing of 100,000 sells out. (Anyone care to guess when that will be?) This per Amazon and a sales rep/fan at the local Media Play.

Wow! Finally a review of an Elvis album written by someone who not only seems to have a good knowledge of what Elvis does but who also actually took the time to listen to and absorb the album before writing a critique. I doubt we will see this caliber of review in Rolling Stone!

I love Veronica! The part of the song that starts with "do you suppose. . ." is actually the chorus. The bridge (or "middle eight" as it's often refered to on the other side of the pond) is the part that starts with "On the Empress of India. . ." According to most accounts, Costello wrote the majori...

IDIOPHONE was the working title of BRUTAL YOUTH. Never heard of Debbie Harry involvement in it, though.

It's going to happen but probably not until 2004. The rest of 2003 probably belongs to NORTH and chances are he won't visit the Southeast until the supposed "tour of the southern U.S. recording" he has been hinting at. Or this idea could go the way of "The Deliveryman" - remember that one?!!!

Exactly, Table! As a matter of fact, while we know that Elvis and Diana had met before the the disolution of Elvis' marriage to Cait, there is no proof that an affair had begun until after the separation was made public.

NORTH - Elvis' 1st digital recording ?!!

Below are the stats for NORTH, per the Deutsche Grammaphon website. It states that NORTH was recorded digitally. If this is true, I believe it marks the first time Elvis has recorded an album in the digital format which is interesting since he has stated a preference for analog recording in many pas...

King of America without a doubt.

Sulky, how can we protest?! I'm also a little put off by the slim mention of NORTH on the DG website. Hopefully, this label will step up the promotion for the new album as the release date draws near. Right now, it looks like this one will have all the promotion of FOR THE STARS. Let's hope Elvis ge...

Which was the coolest award - RARHAF or ASCAP Founder's Awar

Okay, here's a different poll. Which do you think is the the most rewarding award bestowed upon Elvis this year - his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or the prestigious ASCAP Founder's Award? And why is one of those awards cooler than the other? I'll post my humble opinion at a later d...

Can't remember the old saying about the difference between being clever and being wise. I can only remember that "clever" alliterated with "coward".

Island DefJam and Deutche Grammophone are actually both divisions of Universal Music. Two different labels, same parent company. No reason the "ooficial" website couldn't be updated, I would thiink.
