the ravishing sonics afforded on this collectible edition


We'll get to hear , at last , the sound , in the background, of the paper curling out of the fax machine. Back in 1998 much was made of the use of that now rather quaint machine in the writing and preparation of this album. In fact , we were thoroughly sick and tired of fax machines when Elvis or Bert banged on about it for the hundredth time.

Elvis tweets a photo from the recording sessions of Painted From Memory today: https://twitter.com/ElvisCostello/statu ... 32289?s=20
Since you put me down, it seems i've been very gloomy. You may laugh but pretty girls look right through me.

The recording sessions were 20 years ago?

My guess is the photo is on the wall at United Recording Studios, where EC seems to have been recording last Wednesday, and where Painted From Memory was recorded 20 years ago when it was called Ocean Way Studios.

I think I'll be purchasing the MFSL one. It seems like an album that will benefit from this process.
