NEW VINYL LP ON MOBILE FIDELITY 2012

NUMBERED LDT. EDTION IN 180 GRAM VIRGIN VINYL.

Elvis Costello was so enamored with American country music when he finally discovered it, he was motivated to recordAlmost 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 western’s customary themes and dignified by one of the finest performances of Costello and the Attractions’ peerless career. Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity’s numbered limited edition 180g LP opens up the soundstages, clears previously muddled midrange frequencies, and places the imaging of the various country-tuned instruments into clear focus.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elvis_Costello
