Reseña de álbum
Six years after the commencement of a major Elvis Costello reissue campaign at Rhino, his catalog transferred over to Universal, which had been releasing new Elvis music since 1998's Painted from Memory. Like every one of his previous two big catalog shifts — a campaign with Rykodisc/Demon in 1994, a jump to Rhino in 2001 — the 2007 series is preceded by a new hits collection, this time The Best of Elvis Costello: The First 10 Years, a 22-track collection of highlights that's pretty much exactly what it says it is. It is quite similar to the last previous single-disc collection, the 1994 Ryko/Demon set The Very Best of Elvis Costello and the Attractions, which also ran 22 tracks, 19 of which also appear on The First 10 Years. The three omissions — "Watch Your Step," "New Amsterdam," and "Love Field" — will not be missed by anybody looking for a new Costello comp in 2007, particularly because all three substitutions are better choices for the casual man: "New Lace Sleeves," "Almost Blue," and "(The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes," which bizarrely wasn't on the 1994 set. With these three songs rubbing shoulders with "Alison," "Watching the Detectives," "Pump It Up," "Oliver's Army," "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love & Understanding," and all the other usual suspects, The Best of Elvis Costello: The First 10 Years winds up being the best single-disc summary and introduction to Costello's prime years.

All the best...
Excellent selection of tracks from his early career. If you're already into Elvis, you've probably already got these songs in your collection, but this is a great resource for someone just getting started. BTW, for the reviewer who wondered why "Veronica" was left out: this album is subtitled "The First Ten Years". You'll either have to wait for "The Second Ten Years" or just buy the track a la carte. ;-)
How many best ofs can one man have???
I love elvis, but I have heard each of these songs a billion times. He has so many greatest hit packages and this doesn't offer anything new. Is this what it means to get old?????
I saw Elvis and the Imposters on their 2007 Tour at the Warfield Theater in SF on 5-3-07. Elvis rocked so big. He pulled out the stratocaster; the Gibson and played hard song after song. He played at least 10 new songs. For you people who think he's just playing old stuff - so not true! Buy this CD for your collection and be sure to see him live. He delivers. What's so funny 'bout Peace, Love and Understanding?
