    "Spectacle: Elvis Costello With..."

    Did anyone happen to catch this show last night on CTV? If you are a music fan and missed it, you owe it to yourself to catch the next episode next friday. It was one of the best music artist interviews I've ever seen. The upcoming guest list is impressive including The Police, James Taylor, Herbie Hancock, Tony Bennett, Lou Reed, etc... The entire list can be found here: http://www.thepolice.com/news/news.php?uid=5842

    And more details on the show here: http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNew...0402/20090402/

    Well worth watching!

    It is on the DVR waiting for watching. The series was first broadcast on the Sundance channel and my attempts to Bitorrent or have an American friend snag it failed. Yay CTV for broadcasting what promises to be an amazing series.

    Here's a piece from the new york times about the series:

    Thanks for pointing this out Techman!

    I saw the episode featuring Herbie Hancock on Friday; though it was not awesome and it was too short, it was still nice to see a musician of his caliber talk about his trade!

    I like Costello's Everyday I Write the Book.

    Herbie Hancock's Rockit is pretty good too.

    Classic 80s stuff.

    Spectacle

    If anyone knows where i can download the episodes, let me know. Haven't been able to find a link anywhere. I keep missing the show everything it plays on tv, both on Friday & Saturday.

    So far, my favorite episodes were the ones with Bill Clinton & the one with Roseanne Cash, Kris Kristofferson & Norah Jones.

    If you are a member at Demonoid, there are nine episodes available to download in DVD quality. Both the episodes you mention are available as well as the one featuring the Police, which I thought was excellent along with the first episode with Elton John which is my favorite so far.

    My least favorite was the one with Rufus Wainright.

    All the downloads are around 3 GB in size except for the Police which is around 2 GB.

    I didn't like that episode either. I missed the Elton John & The Police episodes.

    The few episodes i've seen contained legends or near-legends. Why did he bother having Rufus Wainright (isn't he from Mtl?) on his show?

    Yeah, son of one of the McGarrickles (sp?) who suck as much. Great publicity machine, and tons of critic props still doesn't equal someone I want to listen to, ever. I think its because RW is gay and there a fear of being labelled a homophobe if you don't agree that he is great or something.
