I filmed the final 1 hr 30 minutes, and Drifter666 kindly provided complete HD video of 4 songs prior to my starting point.

DVD - Elvis Costello with Rosanne Cash "Book Tour 2015" - 2DVD - November 10 - New York

Elvis Costello with Rosanne Cash
Brooklyn Academy Of Music
Peter Jay Sharp Building
Howard Gilman Opera House
Brooklyn, NY
November 10, 2015

Recorded from the 1st row, right mezzanine
Filmed, edited and authored by larryrulz, November 2015

Video: Single camera, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX20V @ [HD FH]: 17 Mbps, 1920x1080, 16:9 (AVCHD)
Audio: CA-14 (cardioid) > Sony M10 (24/44) > Audacity > WAV

Notes: This was the last night of the book tour. Elvis is interviewed by Rosanne, reads exerpts from the book and performs five songs at the end, the final one with Rosanne. It's an amazing book, "Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink", beautifully written in a non-chronological but thematically coherent manner. A must for the die hard fan, but the casual fan will definitely enjoy it too.

Now about this video. It is a highly stealth recording. Security was very strict. Ask my friend sitting next to me who was told no pictures when he tried to take a crappy cellphone photo. So I kept the frame on Elvis and Rosanne without much movement. You won't see any of the images and videos projected on the stage, but you get to see their reactions, which is fun. There is some occasional frame drift, so at times you won't see parts or all of Rosanne and/or Elvis. But for the vast majority of the video, both of them are in the frame. There is a 3 minute video gap starting at 5:40 on disc 2 for a battery change. A still picture is inserted during this video gap. In general, the audio is tricky. Very quiet at times when they are speaking, but very loud during audience reactions. I did my best to balance the two extremes, but there is some audio distortion when the audience gets loud.

After the intro and prior to the stage entrance, the Treme music video featuring Elvis and Allen Toussaint singing "The Greatest Love" was played as a tribute to Allen, who died that morning. It has been removed from this DVD torrent as it is commercially available for sale on iTunes. During the King Of America discussion, partial studio versions of "Our Little Angel" are played. I cut these down to 20 seconds each to make them DIME legal.

Filmed on the last night of the ...Sings Again' UK Tour, this is a low-ish gen audience recording done from the balcony towards stage right

side. It's handheld, so there is some wobble, but overall it's fairly steady & no heads/hands interrupt the shotframe. The audio quality is

very good during the songs, but some of the banter is muffled - & the picture quality is ok (screens below), however it does tend to

concentrate on Elvis mostly & could've benefitted from a slightly wider shot to give a better overall impression of the show, which features

the 'Spinning Songbook', including the necessary audience participation...

In terms of performance though, this is very good indeed - an excellent selection from an extensive back-catalogue, more than ably performed

by The Attractions as well as Elvis solo. The band are also joined onstage by Andrew Schofield (a local actor that Elvis had done some tv

work with) prior to 'Ferry...', in an MC role. Sadly, the encores are missing from this (beginning with 'Twenty Flight Rock'), as when I

transferred this to dvd I put the encores on a separate disc which has now become unrippable - watchable, but for some reason it will not rip

cleanly & believe me I've tried - so if anyone can improve on this upload, preferably a lower gen & intact, please do so - & bear in mind this

is not properly authored, & has chapters every 5 minutes...

I have not seen this particular DVD torrented. It is an excellent PRO Shot video of Elvis and the Attractions in 1980. There are not many PRO Shot Elvis Costello and the Attraction shows currently in circulation so this is a special treat. Be patient for the first 45 seconds until the sound corrects itself. Then sit back and enjoy the show. One very interesting song is Elvis' cover of the Temptations' "Don't Look Back". The second part of the video is Elvis appearing on the Tom Snyder show. The quality of that footage isn't great but it's interesting to watch.

DVD - Elvis Costello & Jewel live at Woodstock 1999 - 1DVD - July 25 - pro-shot

Woodstock 99'
Rome, NY
23rd - 25th July 1999

21 DVD's in PAL

Video MPEG-2 - Bitrate 6.61 mbps
Maximum 8.85 mbps

Ok here's the deal. In 1999 I recorded all of Woodstock 99'. Over time Tape # 1 ( James Brown, Jamiroquai etc) was erased by my exwife accidently.
2 more tapes failed during recording incl. Dave Matthews Band, G.Love & Special Sauce, Bush & others. DMB was posted here earlier so no harm done.
I was lucky, that some of the missing songs were shown again at times, when both stages weren't ready for the next band. So if that was the case,
I filled those repeats into the spots, were the entire performance would have taken place.
A pity, but we still have over 27 hours of good to excellent music presented here.
Highlights IMHO were Jamiroquai, Kid Rock, Limp Bizkit, Creed incl. Robbie Krieger, Godsmack, Metallica, Brian Setzer Orchestra and RHCP.
But there were many other really good acts throughout the festival. Clown Posse gets extra points for a totally outragious show (:.

For all the americans here, that might have problems with nudity, be aware that throughout this DVD-set naked people show up randomly.
So watch out.

Now enjoy the show, as I did then and many times since I created this DVD set 2 years ago.
