In a little over 100 minutes in front of his home crowd (and his mom), Elvis Costello, performer and songwriter extraordinaire, takes you on a musical journey through his vast songbook.

It’s a solo show like no other. Set in a 1960s living room with an oversized television broadcasting never-seen-before personal photos, Detour Live At Liverpool Philharmonic Hall sees Costello up front and proto-punk with guitar, powerfully heartfelt at the grand piano, and in playful mood sat down with the uke.

Digging deep into his catalogue, breakthrough songs like Watching The Detectives sit alongside rarities like “’45”, emotive Bob Dylan reinventions such as “Down On The Bottom”, and barnstorming renditions of collaborative work like the Paul McCartney co-written song,”Pads, Paws and Claws”.

And in between songs, Costello’s patter treats the audience to stories about his earliest memories and reveals through anecdotes about his family the origins of his music and traveling life.

Spontaneously entertaining, acerbically witty and slapstick funny, looking back to look forward, and at times challengingly intimate, expect the unexpected and be ready to ride the full gamut of emotions as you revel in this faithfully shot and recorded film of Elvis Costello: Detour Live At Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.
Special guests Larkin Poe, a bluegrass and roots rock sister act from Atlanta, make a strong cameo appearance.

With Billion Dollar Babies, Alice Cooper refined the raw grit of their earlier work in favor of a slightly more polished sound (courtesy of super-producer Bob Ezrin), resulting in a mega-hit album that reached the top of the U.S. album charts. Song for song, Billion Dollar Babies is probably the original Alice Cooper group’s finest and strongest. Such tracks as “Hello Hooray,” the lethal stomp of the title track, the defiant “Elected” (a rewrite of an earlier song, “Reflected”), and the poison-laced pop candy of “No More Mr. Nice Guy” remain among Cooper’s greatest achievements. Also included are a pair of perennial concert standards — the disturbing necrophilia ditty “I Love the Dead” and the chilling macabre of “Sick Things” — as well as such strong, lesser-known selections as “Raped and Freezin’,” “Unfinished Sweet,” and perhaps Cooper’s most overlooked gem, “Generation Landslide.” Nothing seemed like it could stop this great hard rock band from overtaking the universe, but tensions between the members behind the scenes would force the stellar original AC band to split up after just one more album. Not only is Billion Dollar Babies one of Cooper’s very best; it remains one of rock’s all-time, quintessential classics.

Dean Martin finally got access to conductor/arranger Nelson Riddle for an album project, and the result was an easy swinging collection with appealing horn charts and a series of comfortable readings of recent and vintage standards. Especially notable were the two songs borrowed from My Fair Lady, “On the Street Where You Live” and “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face,” which Martin and Riddle re-imagined as straight-forward love songs; “You’re Nobody ’til Somebody Loves You” (which Martin would try again in a more contemporary arrangement four years later for one of his biggest hits); and a solo version of “Just in Time,” which the singer had recently done with Judy Holliday in the film version of the musical Bells Are Ringing. This Time I’m Swingin’! was a good, confident set by an artist who had figured out how to make competent albums without expending a lot of effort, which was a key to his charm.

Ben Webster’s final American recording was one of his greatest. At 55, the tenor saxophonist was still very much in his prime but considered out of style in the U.S. He would soon permanently move to Europe where he was better appreciated. This CD has the nine selections originally included on the LP of the same name, a quartet set with either Hank Jones or Roger Kellaway on piano, bassist Richard Davis, and drummer Osie Johnson. Webster’s tone has rarely sounded more beautiful than on “Someone to Watch Over Me” and “Our Love Is Here to Stay”.

The band arrived in Japan on 9 August, a week before the tour started, to a strong reception, and were greeted with gifts and flowers. Birch was not confident that the recording quality would be satisfactory, since the equipment supplied by Warner Bros. did not have any balance control and that the recorder’s size did not appear big enough on sight to capture a commercial quality recording. The band were uninterested in the end result, concentrating on simply being able to deliver a good show. Lord later noticed however that he felt this attitude meant the spontaneity of the performances and interplay between the band members was captured well.
