Elvis Costello - Almost Blue

Elvis Costello - Almost Blue

  • £20.00


This is where Costello began to display the chameleonic tendencies that would serve him so well throughout his career. Abandoning snappy, 'new wave' – associated rock for the first time, Elvis decided to visit Nashville and record his take on the country classics he loved so much. Enlisting the services of George Jones producer Billy Sherrill, Costello cloaked himself and the Attractions in countrypolitan trappings (including lush strings) for some distinctive version of country evergreens like Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down and Sweet Dreams.
