Elvis Costello's First Official Live Album Is Limited Edition and Very Expensive

One of the oddest things about Elvis Costello's career is how loathe he has been to release live albums. There is the El Mocambo which started life as a radio program and moved to bootleg world before being part of the deluxe My Aim Is true. And there was the Hollywood Highs album from 1980, which started as a couple of tracks on an EP (archaic term) given away with Armed Forces some 30 years ago and released in the complete form in 2010. Otherwise, besides a couple of specialty hits, nada.

Till now.

Costello is releasing a very limited live album:The Return of the Spectacular Spinning Songbook [Super Deluxe Edition] [1 CD + 1 DVD + 10" Vinyl EP] [Box set] . I reviewed the concert when it hit New York and I have seen him this good in decades. But the price is a mindboggling $251. November 21st is the release date.

If I could afford it, I'd probably go the bucks.

Here is what you aget according to the Costello fanclub.

"From the 2011 Revolver "Spinning Wheel Tour," this Super Deluxe Box Set is a 3-disc (CD, DVD, 10" vinyl EP) limited edition collection, recorded over a 2-night stand at The Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles on May 11 and 12, 2011. Limited to 1500 copies worldwide, each set is individually numbered with a special commemoration card autographed by Elvis Costello . This super deluxe package includes a 40-page hardcover book packed with candid photos, a tour diary of Costello's musings from each tour stop, a 20" x 30" concert tour poster and a limited edition postcard. All this is housed in a box complete with a spinning replica of "The Spectacular Spinning Songbook" on the front cover. Available December 6.

 

Here's what's inside:

CD and DVD from tour
Exclusive 4-track 10" Vinyl EP
Concert tour poster
Limited Edition postcard
40-page hardcover book featuring
Elvis' personal diary from the tour,
plus photos from the shows
Autographed card
