THe Very Best Of Elvis Costello currently £8.98 On Play
GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS! is a collection mastered from the original Demon label master tapes and compiled by Elvis Costello himself. Includes track-by-track comments by Costello.Producers include: Nick Lowe, Colin Fairley, Roger Bechirian, T-Bone Burnett, Declan MacManus.The oddity of GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS is that the CD and the now-deleted cassette and vinyl versions of this collection are markedly different in song selection and sequencing. Selected by Elvis Costello himself as a farewell to Columbia Records, this two-disc set covers the years from MY AIM IS TRUE through BLOOD AND CHOCOLATE in non-chronological order. Going strictly by Costello's personal taste rather than chart placement, the collection ignores big hits like "Everyday I Write the Book" and "The Only Flame in Town." Indeed, "Pills and Soap" and "Shipbuilding" are the only tracks from PUNCH THE CLOCK, and 1984's GOODBYE CRUEL WORLD--"our worst album," as Costello famously called it on the Rykodisc reissue--is ignored completely. The selection, representing all of Costello's other albums and styles well, is excellent, and the songs are simply magnificent. There are no rarities, but none are needed.

Had this on vinyl, great collection. Anyone unfamiliar with Elvis's work should get this.

Just ordered. "I want you" can always make me cry. Such amazing lyrics.

Fantastic deal.......

ta for this..have most of his stuff on (pristine) vinyl..but hey!

Great album....better price.
Superb find.

Alison and Shipbuilding - two of the greatest songs ever written by anybody imo.

Crazy price for a collection of such class

For three quid, you cannot go wrong. This should be in everyone's record collection ('record' - showing my age there) - regardless of if you think you like him or not.

HOT - Thanks for sharing.

I know "she" wasn't his proudest moment but I liked it. Will get this anyway, thanks.

Great price.Just ordered.
The 12 Month Warranty was the clincher
Heat added for Mr Scaggs.

wow - bought it. Did you know that when this was released the track listings were different for Vinyl and Audio Cassette? Anyhoo - excellent and a great way to catch up on one of the best singers/songwriters ever. An absolute steal. Blood and Chocolate still rates as one of my all time favourite albums.

hmmmm.... nice spot! Decided to take a dabble at 3 shiny gold coins: have some heat!

Heat added... just wish I could add more. This is the definitive Costello collection. Don't have this one any more but I'm about to own it again. Used to have it on tapes and got played so much in my walkman, I ended up stretching both of them. Nice one.

Spot on. Add I Want You and Almost Blue to that short list and you have it bang on.

Most over rated artist of all time!

Just had e-mail from Tesco..
Anyone else had this e-mail?

Hi,

Thank you for placing an order with Tesco Outlet.

Please accept my sincere apologise, but when your order was being picked and checked prior to shipping it was noticed that the CD?s are slightly damaged.

I have processed these for dispatch and given you a 50% refund.

Please let me know if any further queries.

Kind Regards

Jayne


So long as the CDs themselves aren't damaged that's ok with me

I've just had a despatch email but nothing about and damage.

For what it's worth, Shipbuilding was a cover of a Robert Wyatt song.

just had an email from tesco saying that as they were packing the discs they noticed that they were damaged so they've refunded me £1.50. If it's the box that's damaged then fair enough. In fact nice of them to fess up. But if it is the actual discs then I'll be none too chuffed.

paaaaul

I understand it was recorded by Wyatt but written by Costello

Produced Clive Langer wrote the melody for shipbuiilding and Costello the lyrics afterwards. Then Wyatt recorded it.

A steal and a good collection from one of the best modern songwriters

Easily the best Elvis Costello compilation. As some people have said the songs were chosen by EC himself and in it's day was very rare and collectable. Obviously, not so now.

Arrived today.Someone had put the inner plastic CD holder in wrongly, easily sorted.
No damage to case.Small fingermarks on CDs but no damage.Great bargain for £1.50.Thanks Tesco

Arrived undamaged just missing Every Day I Write The Book.

Good Fathers Day pressie to give to the family to give to me!!

Arrived yesterday with a bleedin' big sticker sealing the CD..Impossible to remove!

Great CD though.

got mine, no damage, but a rebate of £1.50 meant a real bargain. Been on almost permanent rotation in the car since. Nothing beats the intro to I don't want to go to Chelsea. Am educating my 5 year old in the brilliance of EC. Happy days indeed.

Darm stupid sticker though!
