Ten Bloody Marys & Ten How's Your Fathers

Elvis Costello & The Attractions

Simon Hills

This used to be called Taking Liberties and was only available as a tape in Britain, as was the slightly different version which sprouted this title.

For the uninitiated, it probably represents the best collection of Elvis's songs on one album.

Anyone who thinks that his country side is a load of rubbish — and he's done more country than people think — should take a listen to the breathtaking "Stranger In The House." A brilliant lyric and plaintive vocals make that track alone worth buying the album for.

As a bonus, you get "Girls Talk," "Getting Mighty Crowded" and the superb "Hoover Factory" among the 20 songs.

There's also the gruff "(What's So Funny 'bout) Peace, Love And Understanding" — not included on the Liberties collection — and his "Watching The Detectives" single, in case you need any convincing. If you haven't got it and like Elvis  *****.
