5.0 out of 5 stars First album and best, 10 May 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Aim Is True (Audio CD)
I won't get into the issues about various CD releases over the years each having a few more tracks than the last, which is irritating. I only had my original rather battered Stiff LP release of this record. I only like the first 3 Costello albums.

Disc 1 has the original album tracks which are as superb as ever. Then there's a clutch of 4 outtakes for tracks that didn;'t make it onto the album. Then there's a solo set just EC and guitar which were teh demos recorded at Pathway studios in 1976. That set's quite interesting but not essential.
Disc 2 is a complete concert set from the Nashville Rooms in Aug 77 (with a bonus of the soundcheck at the end too) recorded on the Island Mobile rig, so quality is top notch. Pretty excellent bonus, unlike many of the 2 disc sets with "outtakes and extras" I would be happy to listen to this over again.

So - if you like the original album this box set is worth getting. If you haven't heard much early Costello then this set is also worth getting.
