Last night (Sept. 16, 2013) Elvis Costello and The Roots played the Brooklyn Bowl and lucky for you (and me) fans video-taped the show. La Marisoul of La Santa Cecilia sings on a bunch of the songs. I’m totally digging “Spooky Girlfriend,” “Shabby Doll,” “Watching the Detectives” and a terrific version of The Specials’ “Ghost Town.” Wise Up Ghost, the collaboration between Elvis and The Roots is out today on Blue Note.
