ed opened for neil finn in san diego on july 2, 2002. i got a really nice neil poster that has ed listed underneath. he put on a great, moody, intense show. not a long enough set to sway new listeners, but still blew us away!

He was great when I saw him open for R.E.M. -- loved Beneath the Heart of Darkness especially. I really need to get one of his albums.

Mr. Harcourt is on my ever growing 'guys who I probably will like considering I've heard one of his songs that I like but I don't have any f**king time to listen to because i have all THESE to get through' list.

Do you have a scanner? If so, scan the card!

I'll take a picture of mine with my digital camera when I'm back in London.

Christmas with Ed

I think you'd like him, BC. He reminds me of Ryan Adams sometimes, personality-wise.

And he has the best hair in music.

I want to see Ed again. Really bad.

Why can't he come back to America and play somewhere near me?

(can you tell I got one of his albums since the post I made above, in 2003? )

Maxwell's is a wonderful little place to see bands.

MORE ED!

And BC, I totally agree with Megan's comment about him being like Ryan Adams, personality-wise. He is the British equivalent in many ways, it seems!

"On August 8th, Ed Harcourt is releasing a compilation album titled 'Elephant's Graveyard'.

The album will only be available as a digital download and is a collection of now deleted b-sides, a couple of magazine covermount tracks, the odd international album bonus track and - exclusively - four previously unreleased songs. Coming soon to edharcourt.com will be audio clips from a few of them, plus the cover artwork (painted by Ed himself) and, in Ed's own words, the thinking behind the album and his personal recollections on each song.

Full tracklisting (and source) is:
1. The Unlucky One (previously unreleased)
2. T Bone Tombstone (from Something In My Eye)
3. Here Be Monsters (from Something In My Eye)
4. I've Become Misguided (from She Fell Into My Arms)
5. When Americans Come To London (from She Fell Into My Arms)
6. Alligator Boy (from Apple Of My Eye)
7. Weary And Bleary Eyed (from Apple Of My Eye)
8. Last Of The Troubadors (from Apple Of My Eye)
9. Little Silver Bullet (from Apple Of My Eye)
10. Sleepyhead (from Q magazine's cover CD, 'Rise And Shine')
11. Coal Black Heart (from All Of Your Days Will Be Blessed)
12. Blackwoods Back Home (from All Of Your Days Will Be Blessed)
13. Still I Dream Of It (from Still I Dream Of It limited edition single)
14. The Ghosts Parade (from Still I Dream Of It)
15. Angels On Your Body (from the Japanese version of From Every Sphere)
16. The Hammer And The Nail (from the North American album From Every Sphere)
17. She Put A Curse On Me (Parts I & II) (previously unreleased)
18. The Iceman Cometh (previously unreleased)
19. Asleep At The Helm (previously unreleased)
20. Sugarbomb (from Watching The Sun Come Up)
21. Paid To Get Drunk (from Watching The Sun Come Up)
22. Atlantic City (from an Uncut magazine covermounted CD)
23. Deathsexmarch (from This One's For You)
24. Mysteriously (from This One's For You)
25. Only Happy When You're High (from Born In The '70s)
26. Breathe A Little Softer (from Born In The '70s)
27. Every Night (from Loneliness)
28. Epitaph (from Loneliness)

Don't fret if you already have all / most / many of them, as each song is available individually but if you feel like splashing out, you should be able to get the whole thing for about a tenner."
