ELVIS COSTELLO 'NEW YORK 1996' 2 CD Set (2020)
(New & Factory Sealed)
COSTELLO BACKED BY HIS KEYBOARD MAESTRO FOR A STUNNING 1996 BROADCAST RECORDING
In the spring of 1996, Elvis Costello played a series of intimate club dates backed only by Steve Nieve on the piano, in support of his All This Useless Beauty album. An ensuing summer and fall tour with the Attractions proved to be the death knell for the band. With relations between Costello and bassist Bruce Thomas at breaking point, Costello announced that the current tour would be the Attractions' last. One of the finest shows on the tour was performed at New York s Supper Club on 22nd May 96, where a quite stunning set was performed including many tracks from the new record and a host of classics and obscurities from previous albums, mixed up with a healthy selection of covers.
Recorded for live FM Radio Broadcast this extraordinary concert is now available on this double CD in its entirety, for the first time.
