don't really care much for ANY of his post-"Armed Forces" efforts, but he certainly has his fans, and to them, these deluxe releases offer a treasure trove of stuff.....so that's why I'm sharing them, as I work my way toward the REAL shit, my large stash of vintage Costello bootlegs, which I'll get to as soon as I'm through with these. So, no commentary from me, as I said, these are albums I really don't like that much, but those boots, when I get to them, are incredible, I SO wish I could have seen him and the Attractions live ca. 1980 or so.....oh well, but you'll see, once I get to those boots, THAT is some incredible listening.
As for now.....

BLOOD & CHOCOLATE DISC 2-Interview
And just a note......I already said I don't like these albums. Think this through, though.....at least they are HERE.....I can REALLY live without, at this time in particular, the segment (a small one) out there who enjoys calling names and ranting and raving if I happen to dislike something they like, or vice versa. My point is NOT to always post stuff that I personally like.....My point is to post what I think will generate interest, for whatever reason. I had been thinking of putting up all of my spectacular Costello boots for a while, and this seemed like a good lead in for it....the fact that I don't care for them, especially, should really have no bearing on you. Live and let live, like I said AT LEAST I put them up, right? And, notice, i DID NOT make fun of them, as I do with many albums I post and don't especially like.
