When Was The Last Time You Played This Album?

Elvis Costello “My Aim Is True”

Today’s Cool Album of the Day is Elvis Costello’s “My Aim Is True.”

The live Elvis’ debut release. I remember when it came out and ‘XRT jumped on it. Great song followed by great song. Little did I know that he’s be putting out great music with unmatched variety to this day.

His backing band on ‘My Aim is True’ was an unheard of band called ‘Clover.’ They went on to become ‘The News’ as in Huey Lewis and….’ They should have suck with Elvis.

Many memorable moments here. “Angel’s Want To Wear My Red Shoes, Mystery Dance, Radio Sweetheart, Alison, Less Than Zero and Watching the Detectives.” It’s hard to find many better debut albums.
