Report: Elvis Costello not happy with the pricing of his new upcoming boxset…

Elvis Costello, a rock music legend from the UK, is not happy at all with the pricing of his new upcoming boxset, titled, “The Return of the Spectacular Spinning Songbook”. The new boxset will span the career of Elvis Costello & The Imposters. Costello is not so happy with the pricey boxset, that he even welcomes pirates to steal it if they want to.

As a way to keep his fans happy, he recommends them to get Louis Armstrong’s “Ambassador of Jazz” boxset which is a lot cheaper. I looked up the pricing for the new Costello boxset and I agree it is, ridiculously high.

Read more on what they have to say at his official website, here.

I’m sure the label releasing this boxset will be all pissed off at him by now, but oh well. Shit happens. It just proves that Costello really appreciates his fans and this is his way of showing it.

I love Elvis Costello. Loved his music for years. Fuck the boxset, he’s right that Louis Armstrong is real music. Gotta love his honesty!

Pretty cool. If you have cable TV with the Sundance channell on it, you can watch this show then. I have the Sundance channel ’cause I have digital cable. I’ll be looking forward to seeing this.

I’m a big fan of both guys, Elvis and Elton.
