So You Dodge The Lady Killer Who Came Creepin' `Cross The Floor. Then You're Caught Up In A Whirlwind. You Get Blown Right Out The Door.
Showcasing a countrified sound that would later resurface on Almost Blue, Elvis Costello's reissue of My Aim Is True includes some absolutely phenomenal cuts not included on the original release. Costello's stylistic approach to lyrics and his vocal emoting lend themselves well to the traditional sounds of Nashville country and remind us why he's the pre-eminent singer/songwriter of the last 25 years. Also included is a stellar acoustic version of Blame It On Cain. For your listening (dis)pleasure:
Elvis Costello: Imagination (Is A Powerful Deceiver)
Elvis Costello: Stranger In The House
Elvis Costello: Radio Sweetheart
Elvis Costello: Blame It On Cain (acoustic alternate)
