All This Useless Beauty
Used - LP - 46198
Mint 1996 Vinyl Rarity With Lyric Insert. “Following His Second Covers Album, Kojak Variety, Elvis Costello Set Out To Assemble A Collection Of Songs He Had Written For Other Artists But Never Recorded Himself -- Sort Of A Reverse Covers Album. As It Turned Out, That Idea Was Only Used As A Launching Pad -- The Resulting Album, All This Useless Beauty, Is A Mixture Of Nine Old And Three New Songs. Given Its Origins, It's Surprising That The Record Holds Together As Well As It Does. The Main Strength Of All This Useless Beauty Is The Quality Of The Individual Songs -- Each Song Can Stand On Its Own As An Individual Entity, As The Music Is As Sharp As The Lyrics. Although The Music Is Certainly Eclectic, It's Accessible, Which Wasn't The Case With Mighty Like A Rose. Furthermore, The Production Is More Textured And Punchier Than Mitchell Froom's Botched Job On Brutal Youth. All This Useless Beauty Doesn't Quite Add Up To A Major Statement, But The Simple Pleasures It Offers Makes It One Of The More Rewarding Records Of The Latter Part Of Costello's Career.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG. more

Get Happy
New - LP - 36347
Sealed 1980 Original. “Get Happy!! Was Born As Much From Sincere Love For Soul As It Was For Elvis Costello's Desire To Distance Himself From An Unfortunate Verbal Faux Pas Where He Insulted Ray Charles In An Attempt To Get Stephen Stills' Goat. Either Way, It Resulted In A 20-Song Blue-Eyed Soul Tour De Force, Where Costello Doesn't Just Want To Prove His Love, He Wants To Prove His Knowledge. So, He Tries Everything, Starting With Motown And Northern Soul, Then Touching On Smooth Uptown Ballads And Gritty Southern Soul, Even Finding Common Ground Between The Two By Recasting Sam & Dave's "I Can't Stand Up (For Falling Down)" As A Careening Stomper. What's Remarkable Is That This Approach Dovetails With The Pop Carnival Essayed By Armed Forces, Standing As A Full-Fledged Costello Record Instead Of A Genre Exercise. As It Furiously Flits Through 20 Songs, Costello's Cynicisms, Rage, Humor, And Misanthropic Sensibility Gel Remarkably Well. Some Songs May Not Quite Hit Their Targets, But That's Part Of The Album's Charm -- It Moves So Fast That Its Lesser Songs Rush By On The Way To Such Full-Fledged Masterpieces As "New Amsterdam," "High Fidelity," And "Riot Act." Get Happy!! Bursts With Energy And Invention, Standing As A Testament To How Costello, The Pop Encyclopedia, Can Reinvent The Past In His Own Image.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG. more

Hey Clockface
New - LP - CRE01394
Sealed 2020 US 2LP Gatefold Original. Standard Black Vinyl Version. "Hey Clockface Arrived Quickly On The Heels Of Look Now, But Where That 2018 Album Seemed Constructed As Classicist Elvis Costello, Drawing Upon His Strengths As A Melodicist And The Muscle Of His Regular Backing Band The Imposters, This 2020 Affair Feels As If It Was Designed To Surprise. It Comes Into Focus Quite Slowly, With Reeds And Strings Murmuring In A Quiet Drone Before Costello Launches Into The Spoken Word Of "Revolution #49." The Spell Is Broken In A Flurry Of Gnarled Guitars That Usher In "No Flag," A Transition That Establishes How Hey Clockface Doesn't Follow Any Particular Path. Apart From The Slight Emphasis On Poetry -- It Surfaces Again Toward The End Of The Album On "Radio Is Everything," A Track Destined To Be Played In The Dead Hours Of A Starless Night -- None Of The Twists On The Album Are Necessarily A New Trick From Costello, But The Its Execution Makes Every New Turn Feel Slightly Surprising, Occasionally Jarring. Much Of This Has As Much To Do With The Sequencing Of The Record As It Does The Performances Themselves. The Dense, Clever Boogie Of "Hetty O'hara Confidential" Is Followed By The Torch Song "The Last Confession Of Vivian Whip," And The Ominous Crawl Of "We Are All Cowards Now" Is Countered By A Boisterous Update Of Fats Waller On The Album's Title Track. The Parts Fit Together, Just In Ways The Ear Isn't Quite Accustomed To Hearing, And The Same Is True Of Many Of The Arrangements On Hey Clockface. The Quieter Moments Require A Listener To Concentrate, Then They're Blown Away By The Cacophony, Lured Back In By A Generous Bit Of Old-fashioned Merriment. It Shows Costello's Mastery Of Mood And Storytelling, The Kind Of Skill He's Acquired Over The Course Of A Long Career, But The Key To Hey Clockface Is That These Techniques Are Applied To A Record That's As Restless As Anything Costello Made In His Younger Days."

Imperial Bedroom
Audiophile - LP - HC 48157
Factory Sealed 1982 Half-Speed Master. 5 Stars. “Having Gotten Country Out Of His System With Almost Blue, Elvis Costello Returned To Pop Music With Imperial Bedroom — And It Was Pop In The Classic, Tin Pan Alley Sense. Costello Chose To Hire Geoff Emerick, Who Engineered All Of The Beatles' Most Ambitious Records, To Produce Imperial Bedroom, Which Indicates What It Sounds Like — It's Traditional Pop With A Post-Sgt. Pepper Production. Essentially, The Songs On Imperial Bedroom Are An Extension Of Costello's Jazz And Pop Infatuations On Trust. Costello's Music Is Complex And Intricate, Yet It Flows So Smoothly, It's Easy To Miss The Bitter, Brutal Lyrics. The Interweaving Layers Of "Beyond Belief" And The Whirlwind Intro Are The Most Overtly Dark Sounds On The Record, With Most Of The Album Given Over To The Orchestrated, Melancholy Torch Songs And Pop Singles. Never Once Do Costello & The Attractions Deliver A Rock & Roll Song — The Album Is All About Sonic Detail, From The Accordion On "The Long Honeymoon" To The Lilting Strings On "Town Cryer." Of Course, The Detail And The Ornate Arrangements Immediately Peg Imperial Bedroom As Costello's Most Ambitious Album, But That Doesn't Mean It's His Absolute Masterpiece. Imperial Bedroom Remains One Of Costello's Essential Records Because It Is The Culmination Of His Ambitions And Desires — It's Where He Proves That He Can Play With The Big Boys, Both As A Songwriter And A Record-Maker. It May Not Have Been A Commercial Blockbuster, But It Certainly Earned The Respect Of Legions Of Musicians And Critics Who Would Have Previously Disdained Such A Punk Rocker. And, Perhaps, That's Also The Reason That He Abandoned This Immaculately Crafted Style Of Work On His Next Album, Punch The Clock.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG. more

King Of America
New - LP - FC 40173
Sealed 1986 Vinyl With Custom Stickers On The Shrink Wrap. A Five Star Return To His Folk-Rock, Pub Rock Roots. First Sealed Copy We Have Had In Stock In Seven Years. “Stripping Away Much Of The Excess That Cluttered Punch The Clock And Goodbye Cruel World, Elvis Costello Returned To His Folk-Rock And Pub Rock Roots With King Of America, Creating One Of His Most Affecting And Personal Records. Costello Literally Took On The Album As A Return To Roots, Billing Himself By His Given Name Declan Macmanus And Replacing The Attractions With A Bunch Of L.A. Session Men (Although His Old Band Appears On One Cut), Who Give The Album A Rootsy But Sleek Veneer That Sounds Remarkably Charged After The Polished Affectations Of His Langer/Winstanley Productions. And Not Only Does The Music Sound Alive, But So Do His Songs, Arguably His Best Overall Set Since Trust. Working Inside The Limits Of Country, Folk, And Blues, Costello Writes Literate, Introspective Tales Of Loss, Heartbreak, And America That Are Surprisingly Moving -- He Rarely Got Better Than "Brilliant Mistake," "Glitter Gulch," "American Without Tears," "Big Light," And "Indoor Fireworks." What Separates King Of America From The Underrated Almost Blue Is That Costello's Country Now Sounds Lived-In And Worn, Bringing A New Emotional Depth To The Music, And That Helps Make It One Of His Masterpieces.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG. more

Factory Sealed 2008 Gatefold Original. Includes MP3 Download Of Entire Album. "The Absence Of Much Advance Notice Or Information Might Seem A Little Strange And Perverse But The Record Was Made So Quickly That I Didn't Even Tell Myself About It For A Couple Weeks. So, What Can I Tell You About "Momofuku"? Well, Obviously The Title Is A Tribute To Momofuku Ando, The Inventor Of The Cup Noodle. Like So Many Things In This World Of Wonders, All We Had To Do To Make This Record Was Add Water. Now, I Understand That There Is Also A Fancy Eatery In New York City That Has Made The Same Connection With Ando-San. So, Just In Case Anybody Is Inclined To Mistake Our Record For Something Edible, We've Added A Disclaimer To The Record Jacket. I Like Saying, "Record Jacket" Again. For Those Who Like To Know These Things, We Recorded Exclusively To Tape, Completing And Mixing Each Song Before Moving On To The Next. The Entire Record Took A Week To Record And Mix. The Music Has Been Pressed On Four Sides Of Vinyl For Volume And Clarity Although The Album Was Originally Sequenced With Six Tracks A-Side. Every Record Has Its Own Method. This Was The One For These Songs.” – Elvis Costello more

We Put It On And I Swear We Played It Nonstop To Closing. The Decades Would Reveal Just How Much Range "The New Elvis"Possessed.

My Aim Is True
Used - LP - JC 35037
Rare 1977 White Label promo With 1B/1B Stampers. Radio Station Timing Strip On Cover. Appears Unplayed. “Elvis Costello Was As Much A Pub Rocker As He Was A Punk Rocker And Nowhere Is That More Evident Than On His Debut, My Aim Is True. It's Not Just That Clover, A San Franciscan Rock Outfit Led By Huey Lewis (Absent Here), Back Him Here, Not The Attractions; It's That His Sensibility Is Borrowed From The Pile-Driving Rock & Roll And Folksy Introspection Of Pub Rockers Like Brinsley Schwarz, Adding Touches Of Cult Singer/Songwriters Like Randy Newman And David Ackles. Then, There's The Infusion Of Pure Nastiness And Cynical Humor, Which Is Pure Costello. That Blend Of Classicist Sensibilities And Cleverness Make This Collection Of Shiny Roots Rock A Punk Record -- It Informs His Nervy Performances And His Prickly Songs. Of All Classic Punk Debuts, This Remains Perhaps The Most Idiosyncratic Because It's Not Cathartic In Sound, Only In Spirit. Which, Of Course, Meant That It Could Play To A Broader Audience, And Linda Ronstadt Did Indeed Cover The Standout Ballad "Alison." Still, There's No Mistaking This For Anything Other Than A Punk Record, And It's A Terrific One At That, Since Even If He Buries His Singer/Songwriter Inclinations, They Shine Through As Brightly As His Cheerfully Mean Humor And Immense Musical Skill; He Sounds As Comfortable With A '50s Knockoff Like "No Dancing" As He Does On The Reggae-Inflected "Less Than Zero." Costello Went On To More Ambitious Territory Fairly Quickly, But My Aim Is True Is A Phenomenal Debut, Capturing A Songwriter And Musician Whose Words Were As Rich And Clever As His Music.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG. more

National Ransom
New - LP - HRM 32700
Sealed 2010 2LP Gatefold. “As A Singer, Songwriter And Observer Of Human Foibles, Elvis Costello Is Little Short Of Dazzling On His Latest Outing. It Certifies Him As Both The Modern-Day Cole Porter For The Effortless Way He Marries Sophisticated Lyrics With Elegant Music, And Contemporary Counterpart To Brecht-Weill For His Unrelenting Skill At Creating And Inhabiting Unforgettable Characters And Their Dark Situations. Collaborating Once Again With T Bone Burnett And His Crew Of Musical Magicians, Costello Fearlessly Takes On Rampant Greed (The Title Track), Society’s Discards (“Jimmie Standing In The Rain”), Abandoned Love (“I Lost You”), Romantic Paranoia (“Dr. Watson, I Presume”) And Myriad Other Topics In What Feels Like A Sequel Song Cycle To 2009’s “Secret, Profane & Sugarcane.” This One Delves Even Deeper Into The Art-Song Style, Sometimes At The Expense Of The Rootsy Americana Fun That Characterized Its Predecessor. Costello And His Accomplices Cover The Gamut — Including The Brit Pub-Rock Thump Of “National Ransom,” The Stunning Jazzy Pop Of “Slow Drag With Josephine” And The Dark Cabaret Lament Of “You Hung The Moon.” At Times, He Happily Ignores The Hobgoblin Of Consistent Time Signature And Revels In Oblique Lyrics; A Few Songs May Require Multiple Listens To Fully Penetrate. But Anyone Who Loves The English Language Should Marvel At His Poking Into Its Nooks And Crannies With Phrases Such As “Ravening Maw,” “Colliery Town,” “Fumbled Skein,” And “Vile Vaudevillians.” In Costello’s Infinitely Gifted Hands, Pop Music Circa 2010 Is Anything But “Only Rock ’N’ Roll.” “ – Randy Lewis, LA Times more

Out Of Our Idiot
New - LP - X Fiend 67
Sealed 1987 UK Original With Custom Yellow Sticker On Cover. “Following In The Tradition Of Taking Liberties And Ten Bloody Marys & Ten How's Your Fathers, Out Of Our Idiot Compiles 21 Rarities Elvis Costello Released During The Early And Mid-'80s, Usually Under Pseudonyms. Many Of These Songs Are Collaborations -- "Seven Day Weekend" Is A Rollicking Duet With Jimmy Cliff; Elvis Sings "Baby It's You" With Nick Lowe; Costello And T-Bone Burnett Form The Coward Brothers -- Hence The Album's Billing As A "Various-Artists" Record, Which Is Indicative Of Its Freewheeling, Goofy Humor. Even With A Cover Of Richard Thompson's Harrowing "Withered And Died," Out Of Our Idiot Is Pure Fun, And It's Not Just For Collectors. Costello's Throwaways Are Frequently Excellent, Whether It's Covers (Yoko Ono's "Walking On Thin Ice," Smokey Robinson's "From Head To Toe," "So Young"), Genre Exercises, Jokes, Or Full-Fledged Songs. Most Of The Songs On Out Of Our Idiot Were Later Included As Bonus Tracks In The Demon/Rykodisc Reissue Series, But This Remains The Only Place "Little Goody Two Shoes" (A Working Version Of "Inch By Inch") Is Available. Besides, It's A Great Listen In Its Own Right.” - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG more

Taking Liberties
Used - LP - PC 36839
1980 Compilation Still In Shrink. 20 Tracks Previously Unreleased In The States. Nice Strong VG+ Copy. "Elvis Costello's Early Productivity Was A Bit More Than Most American Rock Fans Were Used To In The One-Album-Every-18-Months 1970s; Not Only Had Costello Released Four Studio Albums Between 1977 And 1980, There Were A Number Of Compilation Tracks, EP's, And Non-LP B-Sides That Had Found Release In Europe But Not The United States, While The U.K. Editions Of This Year's Model And Armed Forces Both Featured Tunes That Were Stripped From American Releases. Soon, Import Distributors Had Built A Cottage Industry Out Of Helping Loyal Costello Fans Complete Their Collections, And In 1980, Columbia Records, Costello's U.S. Label At The Time, Finally Made An Effort At Closing The Gap Between His American And European Catalogs With Taking Liberties. Compiling 20 Songs That Had Never Appeared On A Costello Album In The States, Taking Liberties Was Not Only A Boon For Completists (It Tacked On A Few Otherwise Unreleased Songs So Even The Most Avid Import Buyer Would Get Something New), It Gave A Surprisingly Clear Picture Of The Many Musical Avenues Costello Had Traveled In His First Four Years -- Hard-edged Pop/Punk ("Clean Money," "Crawling To The USA"), Lean Power Pop ("Big Tears," "I Don't Want To Go To Chelsea"), Tough R&B ("Getting Might Crowded"), Country Weepers ("Radio Sweetheart," "Stranger In The House"), Tin Pan Alley Favorites ("My Funny Valentine"), And A Few Items That Defied Any Classification But "Elvis Costello" ("Ghost Train," "Hoover Factory"). When Costello's American Back Catalog Was Reissued By Rykodisc In The 1990s, The Various Tracks On Taking Liberties Were Added To Other Costello Releases As Bonus Tracks, And The Album Went Out Of Print. However, Its British Counterpart, Ten Bloody Marys & Ten How's Your Fathers (Originally Compiled As A Cassette-Only U.K. Release To Give Folks With Tape Decks Access To Tracks Unreleased In The Format), Which Features Many Of The Same Tracks, Remains In Print In Europe. By The Way, Fans Of The Album A Gene Vincent Record Date Might Find That Gregg Geller's Liner Notes Sound Rather Familiar." AMG Review By Mark Deming. more
