Elvis Costello In Paradise - Boston Acoustic 1996

This is a sweet acoustic Elvis Costello show, from an FM broadcast on WBOS in 1996. The show itself is really nice: a small venue (The Paradise Theater), with Elvis mostly alone (occasionally with Steve Nieve on piano), talking a lot and singing a good mixture of old and new songs. Again, a favorite of mine.

Seed notes: I originally downloaded this from GDLive a few years ago. The seeder is a well-known character--a nice guy with good intentions, but who apparently does not believe in sector boundary errors (SBEs--if you don't know what they are, google the term, and you'll get a nice discussion on etree regarding this very seeder). I *do* believe in SBEs and therefore have used the shntools program to fix this one, so that no diginoise, clicks/pops, or empty space will be heard (except for some brief silence at the end of the last track). I re-encoded to FLAC because I can't stand non-seekable shns, and FLAC is smaller, anyway. Enclosed also are an SFV and md5 (overkill, I know) and the original seeder's lengthy notes.

As always, thanks to taper, original seeder, and in this case a big thanks to the maker of shntools, without which this would be a greatly inferior seed, and not worthy of DIME.

Enjoy!

Elvis Costello Acoustic SBD - 1996-05-20 - Boston

A new torrent has been uploaded to DIME.

Elvis Costello (with Steve Nieve)
05/20/96 Complete Show Minus Banned Tracks
Paradise Theater, Boston, MA

LINEAGE: SBD > FM BROADCAST VIA WBOS > D (48 kHz ANALOG INPUT) > ? > D (44.1 kHz) > SSSB (editing performed @ 24-bit/96 kHz sampling) > SHNTOOL (SBEs removed) > FLAC6

NOTE: I attempted to seed the whole thing, but due to DIME regulations, the following tracks had to be removed, as they were released previously on the long OOP, limited-edition Costello/Nieve 5-EP Set: d1t04, d1t05, d1t07, d1t10, d2t10, d2t14. I also 86'ed d2t13, which is just a talking prelude to d2t14. I left the tracks numbered as they are below, in case thay are obtainable elsewhere by some of you.

Show itself is awesome: pristine recording of a very happy (rare) and talkative EC, acoustically performing some classics, some (then) new tracks, including a version of "Starting To Come To Me" that kicks butt on the official version. Elvis is seriously wired during this performance, actually stopping a couple of songs in the middle to tell stories of dreams he's had, theories on Dave Grohl, etcetera. This was originally seeded by a guy notorious for his SBEs, but I have fixed those here. I have left his original "seeder's notes" intact.

Sorry we don't have the full 37 tracks here, but 31 is better than none, right? Right? Ahh, maybe those other 6 will show up for you somewhere...

Enjoy!
