Elvis Costello joins Zappa and Hendrix


David Germain / Associated Press

Ladies and gentlemen, Elvis has left the Columbia building and joined Zappa, Bowie, Hendrix and a legion of other strange talents at one of music's most creative labels — the upstart Rykodisc. The Salem, Mass.-based label gave a 10th birthday present to itself last year by acquiring Elvis Costello's first 11 albums, which Columbia had put out on compact disc in so-so reissues that didn't do justice to one of pop's angriest songwriters. Ryko has begun the Costello reissues with the same doting care they gave to their two earlier big-name acquisitions, Frank Zappa and David Bowie. The Costello reissues began with the boxed set 2½ Years, containing digitally remastered versions of his first three albums: My Aim Is True, This Year's Model and Armed Forces. In keeping with Ryko's aim to improve upon the originals, each album includes live, studio and demo bonus tracks, new artwork and funny running commentary from Costello about his frame of mind when the songs were written and recorded.
