Elvis Costello Spectacle Season 2

Wow this show just keeps getting better and better.

The last two episodes are unbelievable.

Richard Thompson, Levon Helm, Allan Tousant and Nick Lowe all do their own songs and join in band versions of The Weight by the Band and A Certain Girl by Allan Tousant.

Sheryl Crow, Jesse Winchester, Neko Case and Ron Sexsmith do the guitar round format that worked so great in season 1. Neko Case is truly a force of nature and Jesse Winchester has one of the most touching voices I've ever heard.

The one with Bono and the Edge is cool becuase they discuss their early new wave days with Elvis.

This show is essential to any rock music fan.

Just watched the Helm/Thompson/Lowe/Tousant show. Can't agree enough - this was a real highlight, the best show of the series so far!
