Elvis Costello’s impressive album of country covers is now available on 180-gram vinyl re-mastered from the original master tapes. This unique album includes “What A Good Year For The Roses” and country covers of classics from the likes Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Gram Parsons and more.
Elvis Costello was so enamored with American country music when he finally discovered it, he was motivated to record Almost Blue. Renowned as one of the most passionate and enthusiastic covers albums ever made, the 12-song set finds the iconic singer/songwriter interpreting standards by the likes of Hank Williams, Gram Parsons, George Jones, Merle Haggard, and other legends. Replete with heartbreak, lonesomeness, boozing, cheating, and dreaming, it's laden with country and westerns customary themes and dignified by one of the finest performances of Costello and the Attractions peerless career.
