Elvis Costello's "country record" is usually written off as a vanity project, but Almost Blue is quite a bit more than that. It's one of the most entertaining cover records in rock & roll, simply because of its enthusiasm. The album begins with a roaring version of Hank Williams' "Why Don't You Love Me" and doesn't stop. Costello sings with conviction on the tear-jerking ballads, as well as on barn burners like "Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down

I first bought this album as a vinyl record. I was, at the time in acquisition mode for anything Elvis Costello was putting out. I had never heard anything about it as it was brand new to the US market but, what the heck, I had pretty much all of his records to that point and was never disappointed. I went home that night and dropped it on the turntable and was. well, I had to go and check and make sure it was Elvis Costello and not someone else
