YouTubing Elvis Costello and the Attractions

Elvis Costello's 1st TV Appearance
Perhaps the best band ever, Elvis Costello and the Attractions. I first started buying Elvis Costello albums after his Satuday Night Live appearance on December 17, 1977. The details of this classic moment can be found here. At the time, Elvis Costello was like a breath of fresh air. Then he went country western a few years later, and I lost interest. Still, Elvis Costello is the King, in my humble opinion.

It bears mentioning that the music that the country was listening to in 1977 were songs like Muskrat Love, "Dancing Queen," "Blinded By The Light," "The Things We Do For Love," "The Rubberband Man" and the "Theme From 'Rocky'" - which was played everywhere, you could not escape it.
