Limited double 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Elvis Costello returned to his folk-rock and pub rock roots with King of America, creating one of his most affecting and personal records with the hit single "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" and other hugely popular songs such as "Brilliant Mistake," "American Without Tears," and "Indoor Fireworks." Born Declan Patrick MacManus, British singer/songwriter Elvis Costello began his career as part of London's pub rock scene in the early 1970s and later became associated with the first wave of the British punk and new wave movement of the mid-to-late 1970s. His critically acclaimed debut album was recorded in 1977. Shortly after recording it he formed the Attractions as his backing band. Since then, he has remained one of the most relevant artists of his generation. His music continues to evolve nearly 40 years after he first rose to prominence.
