Elvis Costello live at the Shellharbour Worker’s Club
August 12th, 2007

This afternoon I digitised an old live recording of an Elvis Costello performance at the Shellharbour Workers’ Club in Shellharbour, NSW. He played with a band called the Confederates. The band consisted of Austin De Lone, Jim Keltner, Elvis Costello, Jerry Scheff and James Burton if I remember correctly. It also included Nick Lowe this night. It was the 5th December, 1987.

The performance was brilliant and the crowd went wild. They yelled and bellowed for more and the band played several encores. They ran out of tunes and they played “That’s How You Got Killed Before” once more with different solos. You can hear me putting the cassette recorder away at the end after the house lights went up. My friends encircled me as I hid the recorder before we made our exit. Getting tape decks past security was always a worry. Anyway, have a listen…

That’s How You Got Killed Before

    I shall share the whole gig with some key fans and it will be distributed from there. I will take it down off the server soon. My host does not like clients distributing mp3s.
