"made fans endure unknown songs for an hour before dusting off classics"
??
endure???


"best is Peace Love and Understading" ??? that was Nick Lowe's tune!

"would have made a much stronger impact if it were 30 minutes shorter" ??

I hate it when they say that!

I may be speaking out of turn, but I think it is safe to say that after 25 years(and change) "What's so Funny About Peace, Love, And Understanding" is an Elvis tune.

This is a very uncharacteristic review from Harrington. I mean, he did such a niece piece on Avril Levigne last week.

I have to disagree. It's like with Jimi Hendrix and "All Along the Watchtower". It is the definitive version, yes, but it is still Bob Dylan's song. Same with PLU - EC will forever be linked to it, but give credit where credit is due - to the writer.

Lyrically, it is Nick Lowe's. But did he write the music that the Attractions are playing during it, too?

I think that is very important.
