Elvis Costello Box Set

November 30, 2011 by staff 

Elvis Costello Box Set, The label will love this: Elvis Costello has advised everyone not to buy his latest release, a limited edition called The Return of the Spectacular Spinning Songbook.

The problem, he says at the website, is that the price tag – ?£212.99, or $342 – “appears to be either a misprint or a satire.”

Instead, he writes, if you want a special Christmas gift for somebody, buy the Louis Armstrong boxed set Ambassadors of Jazz. “Frankly, the music is vastly superior.”

The Costello box includes a CD, a vinyl LP, a DVD and a coffee-table book. Elvis calls it a “beautifully designed compendium,” but says the price must be an “elaborate hoax.”

There will be no comment from the people at Universal until they calm down enough to be coherent.

Celebrity fugitive Salman Rushdie’s latest is Devorah Rose, editor of Social Life (“the luxury magazine for the Hamptons”), says the New York Post.

Born in Venezuela, Rose “has a well-honed talent for self-promotion,” the N.Y. Times said in a profile last summer, adding that she displays “a keen instinct for when cameras may be hovering nearby.”

She’s under 30; he’s 64.

Angelina Jolie, mother of all those kids, got almost weepy on 60 Minutes the other night talking about her own mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who died of cancer in 2007.
