Elvis Costello and The Imposters taped a concert in Atlantic City this past Friday for the VH1 Classics show "Decades Rock Live," airdate TBD. Elvis and The Imposters were joined at various points in the show by Death Cab for Cutie, Fiona Apple and Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, who all delved into different periods of Costello's songbook. Death Cab for Cute joined Costello for "Accidents Will Happen" and "Kinder Murder." Fiona Apple lent her pipes to "Shabby Doll" and "I Want You." Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong joined in for "Radio Radio" and a totally unrehearsed acoustic version of "Allison".
Costello also offered up renditions of some of his guests' songs, such as an acoustic duet of "I Will Follow You Into the Darkness" with Death Cab's Ben Gibbard; a solo take on Fiona Apple's ballad "I Know"; and a performance of Green Day's hit "Wake Me Up When September Ends" with Armstrong and The Imposters.

Just found this great blog and been browsing around in awe. One slight problem though... Maybe it´s just me but I can´t copy/paste the link without missing the last bit and the result is "File not found". Can You please help a desperate Costello/Green Day collector so I could hear this show.

Kayaker - As an amateur boomer guitarist, I've tried my hand at a number of Green Day and Elvis Costello tunes and thought I might be the only person around that loved them both equally. When I listened to this concert, I flipped out. Old school meets new school doesn't get any better. BTW, I found some of the videos on YouTube. Here's the one for "Alison". Thanks!

Well my computer is working better & is now allowing me to use nitroflare, and as you said it's slow, and has a very long wait between downloads. But, the rewards have been worth it, great stuff!!!
Thanks,

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
