Product Description

Product Description

This long-desired collectible finally became widely available in the 1993 boxed set 2 1/2 Years . This reissue preserves Costello's priceless patter, though, along with appealingly reckless versions of Radio, Radio; Watching the Detectives; Less Than Zero; Little Triggers; Pump It Up; The Beat , and more circa '78!

3.0 out of 5 stars Elvis is in the Building Feb. 22 2010
Format:Audio CD
I must admit I love the music. Unfortunately the sound quality is raw and very very poor. If you want to hear the band and Elvis at their best give this a miss and buy Elvis Live at Hollywood High a very superior live snapshot of the band in their hey day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Costello At His Best Sept. 27 2010
By TDN
Format:Audio CD
Of course this was the perfect setting to see Elvis Costello and the Attractions, one of the best groups in the eighties. The atmosphere of this inviornment and the shallowness of the El Mocombo was perfect for seeong a live performance. A truly great concert.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be There Now Oct. 2 2009
By P. B. Fey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Longtime Costello fans may already have this disc from when it first appeared--legally--in the 2-1/2 Years box set. This incendiary performance documents Elvis and the Attractions quite early in their career (the Deluxe Edition My Aim Is True contains an even earlier, rougher live performance). The pace is frantic, the energy palpable. The band blazes through Elvis's already concise songs, and the set is relatively short. But this is all about quality, not quantity. Not to mention a little rock and roll history.

Given its origin as a concert broadcast on the radio, it's only natural that there are audience sounds. Sure, they can be a little annoying but, hearing this now, all these years later, it's as if you are there and you happen to be standing next to the idiot making all the noise. The important part is You Are There.

I would've liked to have seen some additional material with this reissue but the lack of this is offset by the great price point. The hardcore fans may not need this; but if you are new to Elvis, or weren't around when all this happened, you can't afford not to have it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great show, good recording. Oct. 6 2009
By Glenn Hendler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Every Elvis fan should have this one, to know what those early shows were like. My only complaint: why is this listed under "The Costello Show"--a moniker that didn't appear for a decade or more after this recording?

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis concert series - and sounds better than ever! Sept. 30 2009
By Chauncey Gardner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Honestly, this one of the best shows, which really hasn't been available before commercially, and now sounds better than ever. Can you really go wrong with Elvis & The Attractions performing in 1978 and doing a set of MY AIM IS TRUE and THIS YEARS MODEL material?? I forgotten gem in the live canon of Declan! And sounds like we have more to look forward to in the coming months? I can't wait for Hollywood High!
2.0 out of 5 stars great performance but obnoxious screamer Oct. 13 2013
By R. Roddewig - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These are great performances by Elvis and that Attractions but one of the audience screams in the most obnoxious way through every song. Really ruins the recording I am sorry to say. Avoid this recording and move the Live at Hollywood High.

2.0 out of 5 stars Where is the rest? Jan. 23 2010
By Richard L. Baybusky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Hello E.C. Fans,
Just want to let fans know that this is NOT the full set. It's still missing the encores played that evening with Nick Lowe! If they are going to re-release this yet again,it would have been nice to finally have the whole gig. Just wanted to let people know,for an "archive " release that is a pretty shabby thing to do.
Besides the fact, that the encores are really fun and feature some rare tunes. Hey maybe for the super deluxe release next time . :)
