Not sure Blood and Chocolate would make it in many EC top 5's. My favourite is Imperial Bedroom, usually highly rated on lists but so is but My Aim Is True (which is on my wishlist).




Have got both of those you mention but he just doesn't do it for me - horses for courses.

Guessing you have tried "This Years Model" which is the best album of the 1st incarnation of Costello
Imperial Bedroom and King Of America are the best of his 2nd incarnation
I didn't follow him closely in his following incarnations but love his collaboration albums with Bacherach & Toussaint.
Perhaps you could give them a spin.

Got all three of the albums you mentioned in your first paragraph, don't know why really, I must have found them going really cheaply somewhere. Rarely play any of them, his first few are okay but then I just got tired of his voice.

Thanks for your suggestions but I really don't intend investigating him any further, there's just too much other music to listen to without trying to persuade myself that I should like EC. As I said earlier, horses for courses - we can't and don't all like the same music do we?

Quite agree.

Got the round tin with the three CDs and the Collectors' vinyl edition but keep thinking of getting this, I am very tempted. I am assuming this is the three coloured vinyl set? In fact I have 6 versions of this - absurd or what, and still tempted to buy yet another!
