The final installment of the Elvis-extravaganza, focusing again on another stack o' concert boots, all of them
worth a listen......I think this series has been a pretty fair one, thanks to John N for providing the deluxe editions of the albums I didn't have.
We resume a few days after where we left off yesterday, again from the Dominion Theater, 12/23/78, with Martin Belmont...."Armed Forces" material comprises a good bit of the set, the notable inclusion this time is "I Stand Accused", which I think is the only version that I have.
Leading off 1979 is a King Biscuit Flower Hour broadcast, from Glasgow Scotland. "Don't Look Back" and "Little Sister" are not frequently performed, and the set ends with a good version of "Girls Talk"...also from 1979 is "Live at Hollywood High", a well known effort that also contains nothing unusual....an EP of a few of these tracks was given away with (at least with MY) vinyl copy of "Armed Forces", nice to have the whole show.
From 6/4/79 is the Pinkpop Festival from Geleen Holland....I think "So Young" is a fairly rare addition, as are "We Can Talk" and "High Fidelity".....I guess a bit of "Get Happy" material had begun to enter the setlist, which is where I get off board.
And lastly, this is interesting, someone took the time to create a "live version" of "Armed Forces", taking live
recordings from various locales/dates (1978-83) and sequencing them in the same order as those on the original album. Quite an effort, I've had this forever and don't remember where I got it from, so I'm unable to credit the creator.
Anyway, hope this is enough Costello for ya.....if ya have anything else ya wish me to post, please by all means send it to me.
