toussaint and costello

Just wanted to say that the new record "the River in Reverse" is incredible.
Produced by Joe Henry and recorded mixed by Husky Hoskulds. Great stuff. Take care Logan

I tried listening to it, but to be honest, Costello does NOTHING for me. It may be blasphemous, but I'm just being honest.

I sorta know what you mean, he has this way of singing, where you wonder if he is gona make the note by the end of the line, but in the end it sounds very good and pretty emotional to me. Beyond Elvis' vocal the band grooves and Allen's piano has that wonderful rythym vibe and some cool fills. No big flashy solo stuff just supports the song. Plus Costello is a great song writer, as is Toussaint, I haven't been able to get it out of the player. Take care Logan

What albums do you own? He is really an album kind of guy. I'd like to recommend 'Trust' and 'Get Happy.' If you haven't spent some time with these albums, you might be in for a surprise.

"Old Elvis" as a performer might be a little difficult to take, though his song writing is still highly inventive. I find him to be one of the most consistant artists of all time.

I would venture to say best album of 2006 so far. This thing has been knocking my socks off since I heard it. Wow!

Another great Costello record you should check is "This Years Model"

i grew up listening to elvis. like, i was living in atlanta or dc and i had my really nerdy mathrock bands when i was 7 or 8, and the only other stuff i'd listen to was elvis costello. even what "rock critics" call the gray years of his career, like spike and the juliette letters. love it all.

i'm digging on this album. i've had it for a little while but haven't really LISTENED to it so much, but everything i've heard in thus far has been pleasing.

my grandfather used to say "that costello makes black music better than black people". maybe that's true.
