The Chicago Tribune has a good concertline blurb about Elvis and his music here.

    Hi Everyone….I was food shopping today at our local Wegmans Market when all of a sudden……you guessed it……JTFTW came on the radio throughout the store!!!! This is the first time I have heard Taylor in a store….I broke out into the bigget smile and began to sing along…..it was great! Here’s to many more Taylor songs being played everywhere….looking forward to hearing Heaven Knows next….I am in New Jersey.

    From the website http://www.mainstreamisnotsobad.com I found the following:

    The album conveys a melancholy longing, a searching, an emptiness, an attempt to understand and accept mortality, a grasping at some way to deal with life’s bitter blows. It evokes emotions that few musicians even try to summon up, never mind succeed.
    Part of the lyrics of All The Night Without Love…
    “Well I once caused your cells to shimmer
    And you once caused my cells to shimmer
    Now we go all the night without love
    Without love”

    The words above are not mine.

    Also Its Only Me on the same album, and Moon Woman II are incredibly written songs with deep mysterious lyrics. This guy is a genius!
    This guy has intense talent. His very sad life is probably part of the pain that underscores his haunting lyrics. I love this. Thanks so much for posting this video and introducing me to Elvis.
