I'm waiting for EC to record "Suspect My Tears" and "Burnt Sugar Is So Bitter".
Since you put me down, it seems i've been very gloomy. You may laugh but pretty girls look right through me.

My very favourite is Sulky's wonderful recording of Elvis' epic show at the Picket on 5th July 2007. Details via this link to the wiki : http://www.elviscostello.info/wiki/inde ... _Liverpool

No idea how he achieved such clarity in such a small and rammed venue, but this recording is a peach.

This show is the pinnacle of my Elvis gig attending - from the early days of Erics to the present day - lets count the ways : wonderful performance / got in for nothing via a friendly security guard as I'd got nowhere near a ticket / stood at the very front on the barriers /and had EC repeat my joke re Steve's instrumentation.

All the best

First time I saw him/his in my local venue (with absolutely awful buzzing on one of the LEFT big speaker-bins) 1982 October 4th New Bristol Centre (Locarno).

Intro song 'I FEEL GOOD' (I got you).

And rare version (with Sunday 2013-12-29 in mind) - 'I do want to go to Chelsea'.
'Sometimes via the senses, mostly in the mind (or pocket)'.
