Elvis Costello, "Secret, Profane and Sugarcane" Review


Elvis Costello, launches a new album on June 2: Secret, Profane & Sugarcane. It's produced by T-Bone Burnett, which, imo, is always a good thing. Accordingt to his website, Elivis is joined on the new album by "some of the most highly regarded recording artists and musicians in traditional American country music, bluegrass and beyond".

I personally fell in love with Elvis Costello's music when I first heard My Aim Is True back in 1977. The band I was in covered several songs off the album - all unique stories and different from each other. One thing about Elvis, he is very adventurous musically. I have quite a few of his albums and they are all hard to put into a category. Is it rock, jazz, country, Bluegrass? Its hard to say with him!

The new album is accoustic and kind of country-ish. I think its worth giving a listen to but is not my favorite. I still like the older stuff and loved last years Momofuku because it was more rockin.

If you'd like to check out this CD, let me know, I have one to give away (please see note below)

This kills me: I hate to do this, but I am going to ask you to help me out a bit until I am employed again. IF I MAIL YOU A CD, can you please donate a couple of bucks to pay postage? A CD sent media mail is usually around $2.00. It sounds pretty sad, but I am making every penny count until I have an income again :) Thanks. I'll send it either way, so if you're in the same boat financially - no worries!!!

Elvis is very cool...always has been.

His multitude of musical influences and the way he puts those influences into his music has always impressed me.

Would you send the CD to France? I'll make a fairly generous donation to your site. Email me for details.

And BTW, I've just been listening to his first five albums. Can you think of another artist whose first five albums were more different from each other? I can't.

Actually, the USA would do -- I'll be there in less than 6 weeks!
