30 seconds of Alibi: https://twitter.com/nichtroy/status/609142677423157248

I'm trying to imagine a solo version of "Invisible Lady" (on the stage setlist but apparently not played).

As it looks like a song performed on the piano, it must be Elton's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road :shock: :wink:

Maid Elvis finally get away without playing Psycho?

It's good to see so many songs rehearsed but not played yet.

I wonder if the Goodbye song was a Glasgow connection song.
I might be gone for a while if you need me

It was a brief snippet of "Good-Bye" from the album "Frank Sinatra Sings For Only The Lonely" (1958). I recall the line "So you take that high road and I'll take the low " which then led more or less straight into Joni Mitchell's "A Case Of You."

Elvis Costello, Phill Jupitus, a green plastic bag, and I converged in Elvis's dressing room after his absorbing gig in Glasgow last night. Everyone is everywhere in showbiz, so you never lose touch - unless you want to!

Stood beside Phill Jupitus at a gig here in Dublin recently, some post rock band, Russian Circles maybe, he spent just about the entire time on his phone. Looked like he was enjoying himself.
