Peel Sessions : Elvis Costello & The Attractions

Nobody could have envisaged that Elvis Costello would still be around thirty-six years later and performing still to packed venues. What benefitted Elvis Costello And The Attractions was that they consisted of very talented people who weren’t afraid to stay within one genre of music. Even classical, jazz and country music succumbed to his talents over the years. The ace up his sleeve was he knew how to write a good tune.  He might not be the greatest singer but what he lacked in the vocal range has been compensated by his drive and enthusiasm. Here we have two sessions that highlight where it all began and displaying the raw energy that was the order of day at the end of the troubled 1970’s in the country.

25 July 1977 – Red Shoes – Less Than Zero – Mystery Dance – Blame It On Cain

13 March 1978 – (I Don’t Want To Go To) Chelsea – The Beat – Pump It Up – You Belong To Me

23 October 1978 – Really Mystified – Radio Radio – (I Just) Don’t Know What To Do With Myself – Stranger In The House
