The influential rock musician Elvis Costello is recognized for the impressive
breadth and scope of his music. His collaborations with such musicians as Tony
Bennett and the Count Basie orchestra, however, attest to the many
contradictions that define Elvis Costello, the punk rocker. This important
guide to his music and career contains over 800 bibliographic citations and a
complete discography of Costello's commercially released recordings. The
discography, divided into two sections, separately details Costello's career
as performer and composer. A brief biography traces his critically acclaimed
career and highlights both the influences on his music and the myriad ways in
which his music has influenced others.
The vast information compiled in this guide to further research is as
interesting and diverse as Costello's career. Rock music scholars,
musicologists, and Costello enthusiasts will appreciate the
videography/filmography, bibliography of musical scores, and list of
electronic resources that supplement the extensive discography and annotated
bibliography. A works index and a general index make it easy to cross-
reference and locate specific information.
