The Very Best Of Elvis Costello & The Attractions, 1977-86

Ever since the release of his debut album in 1977, bespectacled singer/songwriter Elvis Costello (who once listed his prime motivations as "revenge and guilt") has been a music pioneer. Not only did he kickstart the New Wave movement 15 years ago, but he also became one of the first modern rockers to cross over to massive mainstream success. And that was before his experiments in Country, Pop standards and Classical music. His legendary back-up band, The Attractions, featured some of the most respected rock studio musicians of all time, including bassist Bruce Thomas, pianist Steve Nieve and drummer Pete Thomas. There's no better showcase for all this talent than The Very Best Of Elvis Costello And The Attractions. From the driving rhythms of "Pump It Up" and "Radio Radio" to the dark lyricism of "Alison" and the infectious reggae beat of "Watching The Detectives," here are 22 (!) tracks of pure, unadulterated Elvis. Culled from Costello's impressive first decade of work, The Very Best Of Elvis Costello And The Attractions is a fitting tribute to one of rock's foremost innovators.
