Songs of Elvis Costello: Bespoke Songs, Lost Dogs, Detours & Rendezvous

Costello has recorded some of these songs -- "Girls Talk" Dave Edmunds, "All Grown Up" Tasmin Archer, "Shipbuilding" Robert Wyatt, "The Other End Of the Telescope" 'Til Tuesday, "Almost Blue" Chet Baker, "Indoor Fireworks" Nick Lowe -- but the main value for Costello collectors is that it gathers many ...

Granted, there aren't too many lost classics here, but Roy Orbison's "The Comedians," Billy Bremner's "Shatterproof," Johnny Cash's "Hidden Shame" and Paul McCartney's "My Brave Face" are all quite good, as are the previously mentioned covers. Of course, this just scratches the surface of the Costello covers and unrecorded songs that are available, but the disc nevertheless is enjoyable, especially for Elvis fanatics, who should also be happy that Napoleon Dynamite wrote the liner notes to the collection.
