5.0 out of 5 stars Dazzling stuff from an artist of great range, and greater depth., 21 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: On Stage (Audio CD)
Elvis Costello is and has been for some years our greatest song writer. He gets criticised for ranging from jazz to country, from string quartet to electronica - but he should be praised and prized for that range. Back in the seventies he pointed me towards reggae with his first really big single, and has remained a source of guidance ever since.

This concert - mid-career - is a collection of interesting songs and played in a rich variety of ways. Oddly Accidents will happen and watching the detectives which featured on the TV show - available as a DVD - are not on this disc even though there is room for both between the 2 discs. A minor quibble when gem is followed by gem - 'nonsense prevails, modesty fails, grace and virtue turn into stupidity..etc' this is poetry. Start buying and listening and do not stop.
