Elvis Costello and The Imposters
Brookville, New York
October 30, 2021
With Charlie Sexton on guitar
Normally I'd have recorded this on my Zoom H2n, but not knowing how security would be at my first post-pandemic concert I opted to leave it in the car. Mistake #1 - security was a wand across my stomach. With iPhone in one hand and Zoom in the other, could have walked right in.
After debating about recording it at all (we were seated in the second to last row), I decided to record using my iPhone via the Voice Record Pro app. Mistake #2 - I had it set on mono (last used it for recording a spoken word event) and forgot to change to stereo.
I guess if mono was good enough for the Beatles, it's good enough for this recording until something better comes along.
The good news is that I was in an aisle seat and my neighbors didn't make a sound throughout the show, except twice when a gentlemen over to my left couldn't control expressing his enthusiasm for Elvis. There's also what sounds like a short burst of static from 3:39
to 3:42 of Either Side of the Same Town (not sure where that came from). All in all, it didn't turn out too badly.
As usual for this tour, no encore break- with the exception of a few minutes discussing the new album, the band plays almost non-stop. First live performance of "The Boy Named If."
