Night Rally might be my favorite EC song ever. Under rated record overall.

The sound is shockingly bad. Unbearable sibilance from beginning to end.

Does anyone know why the word PHONE in the phone booth on the cover is in mirror image? At least it seems like that to me. Perhaps it's a play on the album title, or maybe it's simply that the photo is backwards (or the signs were installed backwards--it's been some time since I've seen an actual phone booth).

As for the album, I really like some of Costello's work but find it uneven. I really didn't enjoy this album much, especially "My Funny Valentine," which to me sounds like a bad audition on American Idol. His wife does a much better job with that one.

label says JC 36839 on my version. The Columbia rim is cencored with a black marker
