*a A01 Less Than Zero - EC (3:15)

Radio Sweetheart (single mix) - EC (2:33) [1977-03-25; 7"; Stiff BUY 11 (UK, originally in laminated ps)] [1977-__-__; 7"; Stiff/Island 17845 AT (Germany, ps)] [1977-__-__; 7"; Stiff 2C006-98.925 (France, ps)] Produced by Nick Lowe. "LTZ" has a slightly different mix to the LP version. Etched in the runoff for side A is "Elvis is King on This Side Too" & "A Porky Prime Cut". Side B contains "Elvis is King".

* A02 A Bunch Of Stiff Records - various artists

Less Than Zero (organ mix) - EC + The Shamrocks (aka Clover) (3:04) [1977-04-__; LP; Stiff SEEZ 2 (UK)] [1979-05-01; LP; Stiff/Victor VIP-6651 (Japan)] Although the actual title of this record is as above, it was more commonly known as _A Bunch Of Stiffs_. This track is a slightly different mix than either the version on _My Aim Is True_ or the single (BUY 11). Like the single it doesn't have the theremin-like organ in the chorus which is on the _MAIT_ version, but where the single has those fuzz-toned/distorted chords in the chorus, this version has them softened & buried in the mix. Also, you can hardly hear the guitar fill during the fade-out.

A03 Alison - EC (2:00)

Record Collector mentions that a few copies had the A-side pressed on white vinyl while the B-side was still black!

A04 (The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes - EC (2:30)

Etched in the runoff for side A is "Help us Hype Elvis" & "A Porky Prime Cut". Side B contains "Larger Than Life More Fun Than People - Elvis".

A05 (The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes - EC (2:30)

Dream Tobacco - Max Wall [1977-07-__; 7"; Stiff BUY 15 (UK)] This was a mispressing of the normal 'Red Shoes' single (-A05).

Side 1: Welcome To The Working Week (1:24) Miracle Man (3:33) No Dancing (2:43) Blame It On Cain (2:53) Alison (3:26) Sneaky Feelings (2:10) +Watching The Detectives Side 2: (The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes (2:51) Less Than Zero (3:15) Mystery Dance (1:39) Pay It Back (2:35) I'm Not Angry (3:02) Waiting For The End Of The World (3:23) [1977-07-22; LP; Stiff SEEZ 3 (UK)] [1977-__-__; MC; Stiff ZSEEZ 3 (UK)] [1977-__-__; LP; Stiff SEEZ 3 (Finland, orange label)] [1977-__-__; LP; Stiff SEEZ 3 (Norway/Sweden, label contains "King stereo" & "The worlds most flexible record label")] [1977-__-__; LP; Stiff COU/B/SEEZ03 (Belgium, blue vinyl)] [1977-__-__; LP; DuReCo/Stiff SRL 910.010/SEEZ3 (Holland, sleeve has white front & yellow back.

Manufactured & distributed by EMI-Australia)] [19__-__-__; MC; Stiff TC-SEEZ.3 (Australia)] [19__-__-__; LP; Festival Records L 36872 (Australia, with "Watching The Detectives" at the end of side 2)] [19__-__-__; LP; Stiff STLP 1006 (Italy, green tint photo, yellow back)] [19__-__-__; LP; Stiff SEEZ 3-NP (Portugal, green tint photo & back)] [1978-03-__; LP; Columbia JC 35037 (US.

The box contains the Demon IMP FIEND 13 LP] [1988-09-05; CD; HMV C88 2-12 (UK, special limited edition (1500) box in the 'HMV Classic Collection' series, with 12 page booklet. The box contains the Demon IMP FIEND CD13 CD] Produced by Nick Lowe. The UK, Belgian & Portugese versions do not include the track "Watching The Detectives" (marked '+'). The track times on the LP are totally wrong. Early LP covers had a black & white photo on the front, and many different coloured backs. Later issues had a green tint on the front picture and a green back. The Demon issue originally had a yellow tint on the photo and a yellow back, and the reissue has a green tint photo. The early covers also have different manufacturer credits on the back cover and label: "Made & manufactured by Press & Post" & "Distributed by Island Records". There are thought to be at least 11 different cover variations. The first few UK copies came with a poster and a form asking the buyer to send in the address of a friend, who would then receive a free copy. The form read: "HELP US HYPE ELVIS In these John Denver days, people in Framptonland are loathe to shell out on new artists. As you've bought this record we assume that you groove to the Elvis GB sound. As you know there are only two Elvis. On is fat and famous, one is small and languishes in obscurity. Stiff Records, ever keen to meet the record buying public demands, have hatched a plot that allows you to become a potent factor in El's future. Here's how are See-Elvis-Go-Gold-Stiff-Go-Broke scheme works. You pay the postage. We send the album. And all you have to do is write no more than 25 words why you like the English Elvis and send this sheet (together with postage stamps to the value of 23p) to: Stiff Records, 32 Alexander Street, London W2. We will then send a free album to the person of your choice who you think can do the most for Elvis. This offer is limited to the UK only. We are only giving away 1000 albums (Jeesus - only 1000!) so write off today and grab a small stake in shaping El's destiny. His meal ticket, your El Dorado. This offer does not apply to Island Records executives, groupies, liggers, Elvis Costello and employees of Stiff." | According to Goldmine Record Collector, in 1984 Columbia Records | reissued, in the U.S. & Canada, all of studio albums to that time | (MAIT, TYM, AF, GH, T, AB, IB, & PTC) with the prefix "PC" instead of | the original "JC" or "FC", but the same 5-digit number as before. Reached #14 in UK charts, & #32 in the US. US: Went gold (500,000 copies) in 1981 and platinum (1 million) in 1991. UK: Went silver (60,000 copies) (date unknown).

Etched in the runoff for side A is "I Think You Know What I Mean", while side B contains "Little Triggers But Big Tears". This single appeared in at least 3 different sleeves: a colour picture cover, a plain Stiff sleeve and the rarer 'telephone directory' cover, which consisted of the entries for the name 'Stiff' out of the London phone book with the Stiff Records number highlighted. Some copies have the "Watching The Detectives (edit)" version on the A-side. These can only be identified by the duration of the track and the runoff matrix numbers: A-side: "BUY 20 A-DJ-1U" (stamped) + "tone controlled" (etched). B-side: "BUY 20 B-1U" (stamped) + "LITTLE TRIGGERS BUT BIG TEARS" (etched) Record Collector (#49) reports that some promo copies of this single apparently had different takes of the live songs on the B-side.

(Recorded by Comfort Sound). The times listed here are the approximate times of the music excluding crowd noise and intros. This version of "Less Than Zero" has different lyrics to the studio version, and is commonly known as the 'Dallas Version'. Only 300 (possibly 500) copies pressed. This album was heavily bootlegged and here's what Beyond Belief has to say about the differences between an original and a counterfeit copy: "Starting with the album cover, an original will have a thick cardboard jacket with a grey (not white) inside. The spine of the jacket will be squared off (not tapered or rounded) with the title information printed squarely on the spine. Also the front cover black & white photos will be sharply reproduced (not blured or smudged). The disc itself is of thick vinyl with bands between songs. The label on the disc will be clearly centred on the disc with sharp printing of the song titles. Finally the hand written (not machine) engraving in the dead wax will be as follows: CDN-10-A-1A-2HDKZ (side 1) CDN-10-B-1A-2HDKZ (side 2)" (Also, the reviews of the show on the back cover are harder to read on the bootleg version). The support act that evening was Nick Lowe. CBS Records Canada released a very limited 33 1/3 rpm 7" promo called _Nick Lowe Live At The El Mocambo_ [7CDN-1] with the following tracks: "I Love The Sound Of Breaking Glass" b/w "Shake & Pop/Heart Of The City".

The original LPs contained the following text etched next to the run- off groove on side 1: "Special pressing No. 003 Ring Moira on 434 3232 for your special prize". The first few people (believed to be limited to 1000) who phoned in received a photo (with printed autograph) and a badge with the text "Made In 1955 For 1984". In Record Collector (#49) it says that this offer appears to have been a hoax! The original UK Radar LP release had the covers offset by about 1" so that the spine was on the back, and down the righthand side of the front was a printer's colour chart - a deliberate mistake? The LP covers for releases in different countries featured different photos (from the same session) for both the outer and inner sleeve. The Belgian/French releases and the release on the Smash label contain an 'alternative' version of "Watching The Detectives". However, this is simply the normal version speeded up (the wrong speed was used when mastering the album). The promo version of the UK LP (RAD 3) apparently came with a pound note glued over the opening! Reached #4 in UK charts, & #30 in the US. US: Went gold (500,000 copies) in 1991. UK: Went gold (100,000 copies) (date unknown).

Produced by Nick Lowe. According to 'Record Collector' (#91): "This was the most sought-after collector's item of early 1980, which offended the law of gravity by gradually becoming more common instead of less. Costello had been signed to Radar in 1978, via a licensing deal from Riviera Global Productions. Radar collapsed towards the end of 1979, and so Elvis's manager Jake Riviera alighted upon the Specials' 2-Tone label as an ideal venue for a holding operation - a one-off single - until Elvis sorted out a deal for the _Get Happy!!_ album. WEA, who had distributed Radar, were less than delighted: they felt they had a steak in Costello's career by virtue of the success of the records they had distributed for him, and so they obtained a court injunction to stop the 2-Tone single being sold. By March '80, the situation was clarified: F-Beat was set up by Riviera as an independent company, but WEA continued to distribute their records. In the meantime, there were several thousand 2-Tone singles to dispose of. These were handed out free to the audience at a London's Rainbow Theatre gig. Several months later, Riviera pressed up a few thousand more of the 2-Tone singles, and these were given away at London and US gigs. By this time, however, the single had been issued with the catalogue no. F-Beat XX-1. As this new number had replaced the 2-Tone number in the runoff grooves, the second batch of 2-Tone singles carried the F-Beat number, whereas the original copies had 'TT-7' as their matrix number. Copies from the first batch are now worth about twice as much ones from the second." According to Krista Reese's EC book the total number of 2-Tone singles pressed was 13,000, and the remaining copies were sold at NY Palladium 1981 concerts for $3.00 each. (It seems that some copies of the 2-Tone 'reissue' have 'CHS TT7' and 'XX1' in the runoff, and also 'CHS TT8' crossed out on both sides. Reached #4 in UK charts

This version of "Radio Sweetheart" is a slightly different mix to the original version (B-side of "Less Than Zero" 7"). It does not have the backing vocals singing "Oooooh" at the start of the line "Hope in the eyes..." near the start. I have seen a Canadian version of the LP that had the CBS/Columbia logo on the label blanked out with a circular black sticker (standard practice for Columbia albums imported to the UK). Reached #28 in US charts.

Reached #42 in UK charts. "Psycho is based on a series killings in 1966 by a 25-year-old University of Texas graduate student, Charles Whitman, who went berserk with a rifle, killing 20 people & injuring another 28 including his ex-wife, her new boyfriend, some small chilren & a puppy. The murderer's conversation throughout the song ("You think I'm psycho, dincha, Mama?") draws on the fact that Whitman knew he was going out of his mind, tried to get help and left a death note asking for an autopsy which he hoped would absolve him of blame by proving he was mad." - from UK magazine 'Q' (Aug-95).

Uncomplicated (NME version) - EC+A Honey I'm A Big Boy Now - Billy Bragg Hardcore Hip Hop - Mantronix Splatch - Miles Davis [1986-09-__; 7"; GIV 4 (UK, plain white sl.)] Free single give away in UK with New Musical Express magazine. There are 2 slightly different mixes of "Uncomplicated". The easiest to tell the difference is by whether it contains a clunking anvil sound after the "horse that knows arithmetic" lines. The NME version has this sound.

A limited edition of the UK cassette version (only on sale in Virgin stores) was issued in a package resembling a Cadburys Bournville chocolate bar, but was later withdrawn due to complaints from Cadburys. This collectors item is worth much more if unopened. The UK CD version of "Uncomplicated" has a slightly different mix to the vinyl, cassette and US CD versions. The story behind this: "Apparently, originally different mixes were to be released in the UK and in the rest of the world, on the _B&C_ album. This decision was reversed at the last minute, but too late to change the CD. The CD version in the UK at least is different from the vinyl & cassette, it has a guitar part missing from the guitar break near the end, and no clunking anvil sound after the "horse that knows arithmetic" line. The NME version was intended to be the same as non-UK releases, but in the end only differed from the original UK CD." - Phil Dennison {cbas68@vms.strath.ac.uk} Reached #16 in UK charts, & #84 in the US. UK: Went gold (100,000 copies) (date unkown).

This version of "Uncomplicated" doesn't have an 'anvil/hammer' sound effect after the "horse that knows arithmetic" line and is the same as the original UK CD version. Despite "I Want You" being listed here as the 'single version', both the 7" & 12" singles had the full version of this track! Although the booklet of the reissued 1996 version is identical to the original, the quality of it is noticably poorer - the cover art is blurred and the contrast of the b&w photos inside is too high.

"CS" produced by Stepaside Productions. "BK" recorded & mixed by Dave Zamitt. This German release contains correct 'Cashbox Version' of "Complicated Shadows". Here are a few tips to help distinguish this version from the UK version (-T11): "The packaging of both versions is VERY similar. The only difference on the sleeve are the words "LC 0392 WE C795" which are printed in small black letters on the back, under the listing of the track "Complicated Shadows", and to the right of "Licensed by GEMA". Other than this the sleeves are identical. Don't be mislead by the "Made in Germany" text at the very bottom of the sleeve on the back - both versions say this. If you are able to examine the CD intself then there are a couple of differences. Most noticable is that the yellow & blue picture on the CD goes right up to the centre hole on the UK version, while on the German copy the centre piece of plastic (about 1 1/2" in diameter) is clear. This is slightly confusing because the other 3 UK maxis in the set have this clear centre piece as well. The UK CD is pressed by DISCTRONICS, and has this text written around the inner ring on the silver side of the disc. The German version has "WME" & "IPPI" instead."

Alison - EC [2003-09-15; CD; Music Club MCCD 526 (UK)]] Sleeve note inside the CD by Joey Webb - "Alison was arguably the first classic to be composed by Elvis Costello, from his superb 1977 debut album My Aim Is True. Indeed, it is this very song from which the album title is derived, a sweet and soulful ballad penned by a true Pop Craftsman at an early career peak. The production values by Nick Lowe add the properly lean sound that the song needs to soar over - Alison a jewel from one of the UK's most enduring compositional talents."
