Agreed. A re-listen has me giddy with excitement at the prospects of the show (s - hopefully!).

Since you put me down, it seems i've been very gloomy. You may laugh but pretty girls look right through me.

Concise note about 'Flame in the latest Uncut. Jackson's latest is, btw, excellent!

My Flame Burns Blue (Blue Vinyl) (CCVinyl.com Exclusive)
Elvis Costello

Release Date: 6/10/2016

From the Steve Hoffman forum - I actually wrote to CC Vinyl to ask them if this was a single or double-LP and they answered: It is indeed a 2-LP set and does include all 14 tracks from disc 1 of the original CD release.

I suppose we should be grateful for a release of any of this on vinyl. All the same the Japanese edition of the cd worked better for me. It had Dust as a additional track , in between Almost Blue and Speak Darkly, My Angel , giving the whole thing a better pace.

WOW...that's weak that they didnt include DUST as it appears they had enough room over the two vinyls. i never heard that bonus cut.

I would have been tempted by the vinyl if Dust had been included, but since it isn't ......

I'm thrilled they're releasing this--already pre-ordered it-- but am also mystified that they didn't just go ahead and include "Dust" on this edition. Woulda been a nice bonus...

My copy arrived today, and it's a beautiful, lush edition - in a rich gatefold. The cover artwork is very effective on 12".
So... well worth checking this one out!

The Dust omission is a pity - I won't stir it further by bemoaning the omission of Still that was a bonus in the itunes edition at the time...

And plays beautifully too!
I haven't tried Side D though :D

Album also benefits from being detached from the disastrous Il Sogno!

I received mine today in the mail and it's LOVELY.

Admittedly, the blank 4th side of vinyl makes it extra annoying that they didn't take the opportunity to make this an expanded edition with the previously released bonus tracks (and maybe even a few additional songs from those North Sea Jazz Festival shows), but I never expected this one to get a proper LP edition, so it's a welcome surprise.

NOW: doesn't this mean that we should EXPECT CC Vinyl to be the ones to put out the long-awaited vinyl debut of Painted From Memory? At this point, it feels like the only reason it hasn't happened is because EC might be waiting for the right time for it to coincide with the eventual release (on stage or on record) of the 20 new EC/BB songs that have been written?

I never would've predicted we'd see Deep Dead Blue on vinyl before PFM.

Today I got a bill from Federal Express Europe for the VAT on this. I had been sent the album as a birthday present - ie. someone else paid for it - so how I'm liable for it is all a matter. It's €8.24 so I'll just go and pay it because I'm like that about bills under a tenner - it's just not worth the time to make a issue about it.


By the way , did the download code with it work for anyone? It didn't for me.
