referencing When I Was Cruel, CD, Album, 314 586 775-2
Elvis Costello built after his crushing debut My Aim Is True (1977) quickly a solid reputation as the main songwriter of his generation. After a series of strong albums with his backing band The Attractions he explored over the years various musical byways, by working with a variety of names like the Brodsky Quartet, Burt Bacharach and Paul McCartney. On When I Was Cruel Costello returns for the first time in a long time back to the simple guitar band sound of his early period, with old hands as organist Steve Nieve and drummer Pete Thomas. The beautiful singing he leaves here for what it is, his lyrics are milder in tone but show old-fashioned spit out. By this primary approach make the ingenious twists in Costello's songs all the more impression.
