Elvis Costello: “The Making Of Almost Blue”

Elvis Costello: “The Making Of Almost Blue”

Elvis Costello went to Nashville to record “Almost Blue,” primarily featuring country music standards. Circa 1981, Costello is in full command of his craft. Producer Billy Sherrill is a little crotchety as he takes pot shots at the new Elvis from his boat, simultaneously hoping the Englishman’s recording would do well enough to afford him a larger boat. Originally aired on South Bank, for some British channel probably BBC, or it’s numerous variants.
