Elvis Costello readies “Return of the Spinning Songbook” Limited Box Set

Posted November 11th, 2011 by eric

Elvis Costello revived his “Spectacular Spinning Songbook” for a brief tour this past spring. The last time Master Costello had spun the wheel on stage was during his 1986 “Spinning Songbook” tour, wherein the setlist was chosen by the random spin of the wheel with various and sundry hits to choose from the prolific songwriter’s bountiful canon. To commemorate its resurgence, Costello will release a limited edition box set featuring a “CD, DVD and 10-inch vinyl EP culled from the performer’s May 11 and 12, 2011, shows in Los Angeles,” according to Slicing Up Eyeballs. The set is due out December 6 and will be limited to 1500 copies- the super-deluxe version of which will feature a 40-page hardcover book, Costello’s diary entries from each city, a giant poster, and a postcard. All of this will be housed in a hardback case with a replica of the spinning wheel on the cover. The expertly timed stocking-stuffer for the Elvis Costello obsessive in your life.
