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.
