    Re: Elvis Costello

    My top 5 Elvis Costello:

    1. King of America (1986)
    2. Blood and chocolate (1986)
    3.Get Happy!! (1980)
    4. Armed Forces (1979)
    5. My aim is true (1977)

    For me he is the second best artist of the 1980's after Prince.

    Was listening to Armed Forces earlier, Oliver's Army will always be one of my favourite songs of all time, I never tire of hearing it :)

    Elvis Costello’s Album With the Roots Coming in September

    [​IMG]

    SOURCE LINK

    Elvis Costello‘s new album with the Roots, ‘Wise Up Ghost,’ will be released on Sept. 17. The record marks Costello’s first on Blue Note Records, the venerable jazz label that’s been around since 1939, and first since 2010′s ‘National Ransom.’

    The album, which the Roots’ drummer and leader Ahmir ‘?uestlove’ Thompson called “brilliant,” stemmed from Costello’s appearances on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,’ where the Roots are the house band. A few white-label copies of ‘Wise Up Ghost’ were made available on Record Store Day last month.

    Sessions for the album were recorded at a couple different places, including Costello’s Hookery Crookery Studios. “It’s a moody, brooding affair, cathartic rhythms and dissonant lullabies,” ?uestlove says in the album’s press release. “I went stark and dark on the music, Elvis went HAM on some ole Ezra Pound s–t.”

    We’re not exactly sure what that means, but we’re guessing it’s a pretty cool thing. Either way, it should be one of the year’s most interesting collaborations. Costello is at his best when he has a great band backing him. And the Roots are one of the best working right now.

    This Year's Model is filled with great songs and it rocks hard. Nick Lowe produced and said he was going for a sound reminiscent of '60s garage bands, between the Farfisa organ and trying to make the drums sound like garbage cans.

    When the album was released it bugged me that people would look at the cover and dismiss him as a geek who could not possibly know anything about rock - without bothering to give it a listen.
