Elvis CostelloHad the opportunity to take a short break from my show prep and venture up to Ithaca last night where we met a longtime friend to see Elvis Costello at the State Theater  there.  He has been doing a solo tour with just him and his guitars, a wonderful mix of acoustic versions of some hits and some other chestnuts.  Of course, with such a long recording career, there were songs that were omitted from his show because of time limitations.  For me, I missed Almost Blue and a few others.  But the show was so engaging that they weren’t sorely missed as Elvis was in fine form, seeming to really enjoy his performance before a very rapt  audience.

One of my favorite songs of the evening was not one of his own distinctive songs but a classic pop song from the 1930’s, Walkin’ My Baby Back Home.  Here’s a version of him doing this song that I was able to find thanks to YouTube.  Enjoy and have a great weekend!
