You're not kidding about the good sound quality, Joel. Nice version of Less Than Zero, gotta love the Attractions when they were just starting to stretch their legs. Beautiful (at least up through Big Tears, anyway)!

Part 2 of the Agora show is now up in the initial post.

Summ-A-Briz, by all means, please post the Hope and Anchor. I think I have that show on a cd-r somewhere, but its been a while since I've heard it.

Jerry, glad you're enjoying it. There are a lot of '77 shows in good quality, but that one might be my favorite.

I'm going to skip around in posting these shows, but I'll probably put up a solo show from '84 next. Time to dig into the archives . . .

virtually no picture, but EC covering "Hey Bulldog" on his last tour.

Anyone have a good mp3?

Well,

-- no one I know listens to him

-- he doesn't get much discussion around where I hang out

-- I am late getting to know non-60's rock

-- Plus when I first saw his image and name in 1978 in Colorado, I assumed he was just trying to use the other Elvis' name and image to further his career and in my 8 year old logic decided that this guy must not be cool to steal the real Elvis' identity.

So it just never happened.

Put it this way -- I have been relentlessly listening to the Parallel Lines LP in that stash my friend gave me, so I am definitely changing on that time period. Blondie is my current thing (I had just heard the singles); I could see Elvis being in the queue for passionate listening.

Anyone else a fan of this one? I'm not normally one to push a best of but THIS is actually how I got a handhold on Elvis Costello. I still have my cd-r from the public library from 8 years ago. Knocked me and all my pop nerd friends out.

Girls Girls Girls also is how I got into Elvis. It was new then, and all my high school friends hated it because it wasn't Aerosmith. (They also thought the Beatles sucked, but they did turn me onto Neil Young via "Cortez" when I was on acid once.) It's the best Elvis comp I know of.

It finally hit me that Summ-a-Briz's sig is from that Sundays song. Man, I used to love that.

My parents read about Aim a while before it came out here, and bought it when it did. So I never really had a choice. I've had every one since right on release.

The US release was different to the UK (actually I think they all were to start with...) wasn't it - was Watching The Detectives added?

The UK 45 sleeves were great - Accidents Will Happen had the picture sleeve on the inside of the bag... Laughing

The UK Armed Forces was this great fold out thing. Free singles with albums 2 and 3 as well...

sigh.....

Yeah, it had Detectives. My favourite track, even when I didn't know it was a different band.

Yeah, that AWH single is great. Talking In The Dark and Wednesday Week!

One of the greatest CDs I've ever owned. A great collection. A great retrospective-and it was this one that turned me on to his "A Good Year For The Roses" - one of my favorite moody songs of all time...
