This review is from: My Aim Is True { Deluxe Edition } (Audio CD)
Yes this is the brilliant debut album from Elvis Costello from 1977.
As a collector-fan from Elvis I bought it.
I bought the LP in the late 70's,
and the CD from the album (13 songs).somewhere in the '80
the reissue CD with extended play ( 9 extra songs,total 22 songs) in '93.
the re-reissue Cd with 2nd disc( 13 extra songs,total 26 songs) in 2001.
and this one, total of the songs now: 48.
probably in 2015 another one with 99 songs.
But the album is what it always was; raw,straight forward music (new wave...?), brilliant songwriting.
it stood out of all what was going on in the late 70's,(...disco and remember punk?) and still does!
He made some very different albums over the years, jazz ,classical and so on.
Most of them also worth buying.
But this cannot be topped.
Oh and for all the extra songs, for a fan they are interesting, some demo's, some out-takes,and the best of the bonus stuff: a very early live show of the Attractions, even the sound-check is included!
And interesting inner sleeve notes, from Elvis himself.
But (for sentimental reasons) I still prefer to play the LP.........I found out years and years later that in the wax on the LP they(Stiff?) had scratched "Elvis is king "
