Elvis Costello, Penny Lane

So, this was from a live tribute to Paul McCartney at the White House. It has the White House logo on it.

It’s new to me. And wildly spirited and emotional, partly because Costello’s mum’s connection, but also because Costello is full of fire. And so is the band, especially the horn player, who comes from the president’s own band.

This is good stuff.

One thought on “Elvis Costello, Penny Lane

  1. This is very good too. I’m sure Elvis Costello gets to do this kind of thing all the time, but what a treat it must’ve been for him to cover Penny Lane with that trumpet player.

    Me, I’ll be satisfied if I get to play “Long Way To The Top” by AC/DC with bagpipes before I die.
