Taking Liberties

Elvis Costello

Billboard

Here are no less than 20 songs from the prolific Costello. They are not new. These are B sides, unreleased masters, and English cuts which reveal a wider range of styles and dimensions than Costello's four previous U.S. releases. But even when Costello goes beyond his basic rock 'n' roll to country and r&b, the unique and distinctive style is always there. Throughout, the Attractions, Costello's three-man backup band is always economical and just to the point.

Best cuts: "(I Don't Want To Go To) Chelsea," "Radio Sweetheart," "Crawling To The U.S.A.," "Stranger In The House," "Night Rally," "Getting Mighty Crowded."
