This is a good live album. You don't get a lot of taste of the "Spinning Songbook" idea (where he spins a wheel to determine what song is next), but it's a nice cross-section of songs from his career. He does a nice version of the Stones' "Out Of Time", and Susanna Hoffs drops by to duet on "Tear Off Your Own Head (It's A Doll Revolution)", which Costello wrote for the Bangles reunion album (and recorded himself as well).
Originally posted by CR0They've also announced a spot sale: 12 from 2012 at $2.99 each. I'm too lazy to list them individually, but if you think you might want to pick up some new albums on the cheap, click right here.
Argh, I JUST bought that Of Monsters and Men album a few days ago when it was $5.
What Amazon is NOT telling you is that for several weeks, you could have bought this album for $5.00, so this "sale" price is actually 99¢ MORE expensive. So, like I said yesterday, I really think there's no point even bringing these to your attention any more. I'll be retiring these posts at the end of the month.
THIS IS IT. I'm retiring these posts effective right after I send this one. I will probably still do the $5 lists every month, but the daily deals are barely "deals" at all at this point - a sure sign of an evolved market!
http://www.the-smackdown.com/ There is a hardcore rock band from Sweden called The Smackdown. I stumbled on their CD called "Calling the Spots" on iTunes this morning. The music is remarkably terrible.
