Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Never been a fan of Elvis Costello... Don't know why... don't even own any vinyl by him.

counterpoint: I never got Scott Walker until his last few albums, which clicked w/ me and slowly found myself liking his earlier and earlier stuff on each listen.

getting mighty crowded i did not hear by Elvis first (not sure it was Betty though)....most of those songs i never heard at all before today.
Avatar 12:37pm northguineahills:

So, I was around almost 40 by the time I got Scott Walker, so maybe there's still hope for me w/ Elvis Costello.

Holy f***, I'm in the hotseat just one week from now. Jeez. I need to try to learn what music is about and how to play it.

This Roger McGuinn track always reminded of McGuinn doing an impression of Tom Petty doing an impression of Roger McGuinn. ;)

Roger McGuinn's voice always gets me.

Good luck with that, janitor-boy.

Gilded Palace is tempting, but it doesn't take much.

@UM: I'm hearing that spoken like "monkey-boy" in Buckaroo Banzai.

That's exactly right.
Avatar 1:45pm Jeff Moore:

I was hoping so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47pm Ann Nonemus:

Jeff Moore, I've heard that Schulkind tends to run late. You probably only need, like, 20 minutes' worth of music.
Avatar 1:47pm Jeff Moore:

In one week, everybody enjoy the show by Kurt Gottschalk, an excellent DJ. Uncle Michael will be back after that.
  1:47pm rw:

You Bowed Down may be the one that sounds the most like EC to me so far. I'd kind of like to hear the Ono cover.
  1:47pm Dean:

"Neat Neat Neat" on Damned Damned Damned might be my favorite song song song.
Avatar 1:48pm Jeff Moore:

@Ann... I feel like we've met before.
  1:49pm Dean:

...if only because it is the prelude to one of my favorite albums albums albums.

It's a Damned Damned Damned good song song song. That's for sure sure sure.

You can say that again!

I finally got around to watching that Stiff tour doc. Works as advertised. Highly recommended.

john77, always thought that the production on Gilded Palace could have been so much better.

See ya, Larry!

Elvis actually wrote Girls Talk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm Uncle Michael:

yes, dan
  1:54pm dan:

I saw Nick Lowe for free at Lincoln Center. It was just him and his guitar. He ended with What's So Funny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:54pm doctorjazz:

Nuttun' but the hits!
  1:54pm Dean:

This is the song Elvis taught me, even though I was a Brinsley Schwarz fan well before the smuggled b-side. Hadn't heard this BS track.
Avatar 1:55pm geezerette:

What's so funny?

Two other people who should have had bigger careers in the US were Dave Edmunds and Nick Lowe.

Sem, in current US money , those ticket prices ranged from a high of $6.25 down to 82 cents (a shilling was basically worth a quarter ) (sorry about the lateness, I just noticed it)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm Lane Gray:

Dan, Dave had some notable success on the other side of the glass in the US (Janie Fricke's "Playing With the Queen of Hearts was his production and arrangement). Maybe not the same fame, but better bucks.

mmmmmm pimento cheese. YES need the recipe! pimento cheese on club crackers, oh yeah
Avatar 2:03pm Brian in UK:

@john77 I even got a Canadian pressing in the naive hope that it would sound better.

@Uncle totally agree on McGuinn he had a good ear, shame his voice was not
stronger. Nitpicking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm Rich in Washington:

what are pimentos, exactly? Also, I remember those (then) ubiquitous cheese-based sandwich spreads made by Kraft, in those little glass jars with metal lids. Are they still a thing?
Avatar 2:03pm Sem:

mmmmm Charles Aznavour cheese. It is so French!
Avatar 2:03pm Brian in UK:

Char;es Hasnovoice.

Charles Aznavour is 94 years old and still performing today. Amazing.

oh geeze, I want the recipe but have to leave in two minutes. will scour the archives
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Rich in Washington:

I've got this thing for a Eastern European spread called Ajjvar. It's like eggplant, peppers and I think pimentos.
Avatar 2:04pm geezerette:

Some girl, or whatever it is he's singing about.

i know the name aznavour from a reference in a psychedelic furs song.

I love it! There's a Bosnian cafe/pub in my town that serves cevapi and ajjvar and sour cream and onions on the side. It's super messy to eat but so good.

When I was a kid, I had a book of the unexplained which included a section on the "Gloomy Sunday" legend. It was YEARS before I worked up the nerve to listen to the song.
Avatar 2:11pm geezerette:

Imagine people trying to dance to this.
Avatar 2:11pm coelacanth∅:

i first heard this by Billie Holiday when i was around 18. when the mood changed and she sang it was just a dream i was terribly disappointed. what a copout!
Avatar 2:12pm Sem:

Gloomy? A Hungarian joke: a pessimist says: "Things can't get worse!" Hungarian optimist: "Yes they CAN!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm The Oscar:

@coelacanth I was just about to say, so refreshing to hear an English version without the tacked-on ending!

June was a fella.

There's a reason Johnny Cash couldn't call it "A Boy Named June."
Avatar 2:25pm coelacanth∅:

oh - i forgot these songs are all somehow Elvis Costello related
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm doctorjazz:

Another one from the EC make up album, but he did it at 78 RPM. Actually never heard this version nice.
  2:26pm dan:

Where did Elvis find the time in a pre-iTunes era to find these obscure songs.
Avatar 2:26pm coelacanth∅:

Dean -2 reasons.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm Uncle Michael:

He released versions of all of these songs, Coel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Jeff Golick:

I missed the spelling.
  2:27pm Dean:

To answer @dan's query: It was a pre-iTunes era. That's where he found the time.

i agree with Sweet Corn Lizzie @12.58. maybe because Elvis' singing is something i only reluctantly tolerate for his songs.

cool - Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks that I haven't heard before!

maybe that was the case
