Re: Costello

The only Elvis record I ever owned was Costello's country covers, 'Almost Blue'. Thought it was quite good. Remember the TV documentary where the Nashville producers thought he was pants and the whole thing was going to be scrapped until Elvis got shit-faced and could deliver the songs in style.
Jonathan Richman's country album was Ok too. He did some standards, and covered some of his own songs in a country style!
