The Music - Elvis Costello does MTV Unplugged {Full Show} (1991)

File:1991-06-03 MTV Unplugged 01.jpg

the pretty clothes are scattered round the room, and it's so like Candy ....

A great piece here where Hippy Elvis Costello and The Rude 5 perform on MTV Unplugged back in June 1991..

Surprisingly, Elv's scruffy beard and gay pony-tailed, unwashed, crusty look here didn''t last long!

And this is the full show!

Some great music here but only five of the songs here made it to the broadcast version!

The douches at MTV, apparently, didn't want to air a bunch of songs from their then-unreleased wonderful covers album, Kojak Variety

Hippy Elvis begins with a fragment of "Home Is Anywhere You Hang Your Head" and then blasts out "Deep Dark Truthful Mirror", "So Like Candy / I Want You", "The Other Side Of Summer", "Must You Throw Dirt In My Face", "Hidden Charms", "Everybody's Crying Mercy", "Hurry Down Doomsday (The Bugs Are Taking Over)", "Couldn't Call It Unexpected No. 4" and "Bama Lama Bama Loo."
