Elvis Moderne [87; Faux Music Video] Filmed in Hamburg, Germany, '87. Reviewed in 'Creem' (Feb/87): "Features Bruce Springsteen, EC, Lou Reed & Shane McGowan on stage together singing 'nothing' but the best of Elvis Presley! Although Reed's stirring rendition of "I Believe In The Man In The Sky" is certainly the artistic highlight of the show (and I must note that Springsteen, Costello & MacGowen make a fabulous New Jordanairres), it is Costello who electrifies the crowd with his extended reading of "Viva Las Vegas". No cynical Elvis this! If you can find a copy of this rarity, scoop it up - but don't be surprised if the asking price is $150 or more." Elvis Live At The Beacon Theatre, New York, 12-Aug-96 [96; Living After Midnight Videos; 2 hours] This contains the first 23 songs of the show in order, but the last 3 of evening are missing. The start of "Why Can't A Man Stand Alone" and "Clubland" are missing. This is worth having just for the "It's Time"/ "All This Useless Beauty"/"Green Shirt"/"Distorted Angel"/"Chelsea" segment. Quality: It takes a few minutes before the camera is focused correctly, but then most of the rest of the show is very clear. Very good audio for a video, but the audio/visual synchonisation is a problem at times. Why Can't A Man Stand Alone?
