Elvis Costello Says NOT to Buy His New Boxed Set

Here’s something you don’t see that often anymore, true honesty!

Elvis Costello’s new Return of the Spectacular Spinning Songbook  is out. The special-edition set, which includes a CD and DVD of a concert from earlier this year, plus a  book, is selling for at least $225 in the US and more than $300 in England , a price which the singer says “appears to be either a misprint or a satire. All our attempts to have this number revised have been fruitless, but rather than detain you with tedious arguments about morality, panache and book-keeping”

He recommends that Christmas shoppers instead seek out Louis Armstrong’s Ambassador Of Jazz set, which contains no fewer than ten albums for a price lower than Costello’s collection. “Frankly, the music is vastly superior”

Wow – alright then!  I have a whole new respect for Mr. Costello!
