Painted From Memory


Shawn Dova

This week as promised, Painted From Memory, the latest from Elvis Costello with Burt Bacharach, is being released. In addition, the recent release from Soul Asylum, Candy From a Stranger is up for review.

What can I say about Elvis Costello that hasn't been said? He has recorded 18 albums since the release of My Aim is True in 1977.

"In the Darkest Place" is a soulful ballad sang by one of the best voices in the recording industry. The horn section in "Toledo" is reminiscent of other Bacharach recordings — namely a few of the top-10 hits he penned with Dionne Warwick. This CD is very soothing — a combination of the love ballads these two created and Costello's passion enriched voice.

At times Bacharach seems to overpower Costello's influence on the music, but his wailing voice pierces through in the end. "What's Her Name Today?" and "I Still Have That Other Girl" are leagues apart from the rest of the CD in their tranquil, timeless nature. The final cut is the first collaboration of these two, "God Give Me Strength," from the 1997 film Grace of My Heart.

If you don't own any Elvis Costello, this CD is good start for your collection.
