It's hard for me to watch it, particularly the early eighties stuff, and not think:
a.) oh yeah, that's where I learned to dance;
b.) the pink socks, the razor thin tie, the big, horn-rimmed sunglasses...yeah, that explains every photograph ever taken of me in highschool; and
c.) no one likes or appreciates, or has worse taste in music less than the suits at record companies.
They don't get the music, they don't like the music, they call it "units", and, if there's one lousy unrepresentative song on an album of twenty songs, they'll put it on MTV.
That doesn't have anything to do with this DVD. It's fantastic! It just made me laugh that someone actually thought it was a good idea to make a video out of "So Like Candy". People who like Elvis didn't even like that song.
And nobody bothered to promote Blood And Chocolate at all.
Well, I don't make a living doing this. So I don't have to be stupid.
One of my favorites, herky, jerky, New Wave thuggish--Mick Jones on guitar! Never released this one. No video. And it's just as well.
Some things are too good to ruin with bidness. You know, they're better than all that.
Might be money under the bridge. But I'd bet Elvis, himself, is just about glad.
Thanks, again, Elke.
