"Made in EU in 2003, Serial# ELVISBOX-101, Playing Time 75:06Are you a Costello completist? If you are, there's no doubt you'll buy this 12-disc box set!The 28-tracks included here (disc 2 also contains an "uncredited" alternate version of "Alison") are basically taken from EC's first 12 singles, each in a replica picture sleeve (including disc 11 with the inside-out jacket of "Accidents Will Happen", which also contains 2 tracks that made up disc 9, the giveaway single for some attendees of the Dominion Theatre concerts of 1978).This little "chest" includes a 12-page booklet that gives a track-by-track history of each of the singles.An obvious attempt at "cashing in" by the record company, this box (the first of 3) covers the 1977/03 to 1980/01 era of EC's singles, but the whole thing would have fitted on a single CD.For completists only, since almost all tracks are available on some compilations or remastered re-issues.You'll have to decide whether the 4 tracks making their first appearance on CD are worth the price tag ?!?"
