A Cheeky Message From Elvis Costello Says Give The Gift Of Jazz
Elvis Costello gives a tip of his fedora to an oldie but goodie, the inimitable Louis Armstrong. As our sister blog Pop & Hiss reports, Costello and his team recently objected to the $339.98 list price for his CD package called The Return Of The Spectacular Spinning Songbook."
The message on elviscostello.com suggests that the price appears to be either a misprint or a satire." So where's a Costello fan to turn for gift-giving? The post has a suggestion:
If you want to buy something special for your loved one at this time of seasonal giving, we suggest, Ambassador Of Jazza cute little imitation suitcase containing ten re-mastered albums by one of the most beautiful and loving revolutionaries who ever livedLouis Armstrong.
The box should be available for under one hundred and fifty American dollars and includes a number of other tricks and treats.
Frankly the music is vastly superior.
