Elvis Costello - Live At The El Mocambo mp3 album
Live at the El Mocambo is a 1993 live album by Elvis Costello and the Attractions. Recorded in March 1978 from a live radio broadcast by CHUM-FM, a tape of the broadcast was obtained by the Canadian division of CBS records and released as an exclusive Canadian promotional album in the same year. As the show's fame began to grow, it became heavily bootlegged
Live at the El Mocambo was recorded on March 6, 1978, during a club show in Toronto, Canada, as Elvis Costello and the Attractions were storming North America in support of My Aim Is True; the set was broadcast live by a local FM radio outlet, and this album is a clean but compressed, slightly flat recording drawn from the station's feed.

Every new Elvis Costello album arrives with a critical assessment of his late-career eclecticism, which covers Tin Pan Alley, Brill Building pop, Southern rock, Nashville Americana, and many other ticks off his bucket list. If you're cynical, you might say he's become the thing he once railed against: an establishment artist coasting on the good will of his back catalog. If you're generous, you might argue- fairly circuitously- that he's simply rebelling against yesterday's rebellion. He may have been young, he may have been righteously pissed, but he sounds worldly on those early albums, and especially on Live at the El Mocambo. Recorded in Toronto on Costello's 1978 tour for My Aim Is True, the album was originally released as a promotional item, survived the 1980s as a bootleg, and finally got a commercial release as part of the 1993 box set 2½ Years.
Album · 1977 · 14 Songs. This 1978 Canadian radio broadcast captures Elvis Costello performing tunes from his first two albums. There’s an inherent intensity and expressiveness not found in the studio recordings-that rare sound of a taut live band fully aware of their musical purpose. Radio Radio, Pump It Up, and Welcome to the Working Week all rage with spare, tightfisted punk fury, and the relatively gentle Little Triggers soothes with rawer, bruised-up sensitivity.
The El Mocambo is a live music and entertainment venue in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Located on Spadina Avenue, just south of College Street, the bar has played an important role in the development of popular music in Toronto since the 1940s. Less Than Zero" is the eighth track on Elvis Costello's debut album My Aim Is True, and the first Costello single that Stiff Records released. The song expressed Costello's anger after seeing former British Union of Fascists leader Oswald Mosley interviewed on television attempting to deny hi. mage: Less Than Zero UK single cover.
