Otis, my guess is that he'll start playing the NORTH songs toward the end of the tour in those dates scheduled with just Steve.

Thanks again, Martin. Maybe Elvis will give it to us as a bonus track sometime.

Thanks for this great photo, Plaything! I wonder if this was El's first meeting with Ringo. If so, I'm sure he was thrilled.

Awesome, Martin! Thanks. What is "Either Side of the Same Town"? Cover or original?

Hey, Blue. I'm just going by the few numbers listed in the review. I'd love to see a complete setlist as well.

The setlist is sublime. He hasn't played "Sweet Dreams" in ages. I love it when he doesn't pander to the audience. When it's on his terms, the performances are infinitely more passionate. Not only that, hearing just "the hits" gets so boring and predictable after awhile. My only regret is this is th...

Sulky, that's very nice work. Some great pics there depicting EC at many different stages in his career, as I'm sure the song selection will! As much as I love music, I can't play a note and when I sing it's in such a pseudo-Costello voice that it's pitiful, so no song from me. Bluechair and Sulky, ...

"I'm out!," Kramer slams his money on the table in defeat in "The Contest." A classic episode!

I'm with you on this series, Less Than Zero. Thankfully, they are finally preparing a DVD set. No release date yet, but I'm there!

I love the lyrics to every song. They certainly work as poetry. I can't wait to hear them as songs!

KOC, I'm interested in the internet track as well. I wonder if he'll post it on on the Island site (if they ever decide to resurrect it).

Time will tell.

Tokyo, when I read your post two albums popped in my mind:John Lennon's PLASTIC ONO BAND and DOUBLE FANTASY. It's like they're made by two different people and in a sense they are. On POB, John is angry, hungry, desolate, and dissatisfied. That touches a chord in everyone because ultimately we are a...

Martin and John, thanks for all the info. You guys are always on top of it! While I too am a bigger fan of "rocking out," I recognize that our man is multi-talented. These descriptions remind me of the pre-album talk surrounding IMPERIAL BEDROOM ("removing the dominance of the beat so the melodies c...

Thanks, gang. It's good to be back. I only hope that EC's scheduled September release for his new album doesn't delay the reissues even further, like CRUEL SMILE did last time.

Thank you for the kind welcome, Lapins and Plaything. I'll try not to be such a "stranger in the house" this time. My time is mostly consumed looking for a new career since my music store chain is on the verge of bankruptcy. I'm hanging in there and I'm sure I'll land on my feet eventually. Playthin...

I wonder if the UK reissues are really coming out in July? In America, RHINO has pushed them back to September. I would like to think that RHINO has better business sense than to lose sales to imports two months early. As avid as EC collectors are, we will not wait. I'll be importing them ASAP to he...

Thanks, Taz! You're the man. I just registered here on your outstanding site. It's very nice of you to set up a new home for us.

I may not post that much, but I love you folks too much to stay away forever.

Once again, thanks and I'll see you in Elvisland!
