DVD review: Elvis Costello 'Live in Memphis'
(Reuters, Saturday April 16)
ARTIST: ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS
DVD: CLUB DATE -- LIVE IN MEMPHIS
NEW YORK (Billboard) - Eagle Rock Entertainment's debut release in its "Club Date" DVD series is a doozy. It stars Elvis Costello & the Imposters, with special guest Emmylou Harris, and was recorded live before 250 fans at the Hi Tone Cafe in Memphis.
The knockout live set contains tunes from Costello's latest album, "The Delivery Man," and concert staples like "Radio Radio" and "Alison," the latter paired with "Suspicious Minds" in a tacit nod to Memphis' other Elvis.
Harris, who appears on the new album, shines on several duets, most notably a tender version of Johnny Cash's "I Still Miss Someone."
Bonus material includes more Harris duets and a fascinating road trip documentary featuring Costello and longtime drummer Pete Thomas in the back of a 1954 Cadillac rolling through Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi.
