Elvis Costello Comes Home With You

September 3 [16:00 EDT] — Any doubts that Elvis Costello is a truly engaging live entertainer may soon be dispelled by the release of “Elvis Costello Live: A Case For Song.”

The home video, which arrives October 21, features the singer in intimate settings and follows him through solo performances as well as turns with the Brodsky Quartet and the White City Septet. Fans will no doubt be especially jazzed by the solo acoustic version of “Veronica” that Costello throws into the set.

The video’s release coincides with the arrival of the Costello CD retrospective “Extreme Honey: The Very Best Of The Warner Years.”
