9-Disc Box Set Personally Curated By Elvis Costello!
3LP, 3 10" Vinyl & 3 7" Vinyl Singles!
Newly Remastered From The Original Masters!
Includes 7 Custom Notebooks, A Poster, 4 Original Postcards & 23 Previously Unreleased Live Tracks!

This super deluxe edition was personally curated by Elvis Costello. The box fully embraces Barney Bubbles' epic package art and features 9 pieces of vinyl, 7 custom notebooks containing updated liner notes from Costello (nearly 10,000 words total) and his handwritten lyrics from the era.

The album receives a brand-new remaster from the original production master tapes with the sonic fidelity matching the original 1979 UK pressing. Along with selections from the Hollywood High show, there are 3 more concerts, 23 never released live songs including the full PinkPop 1979 set and highlights from the notorious Riot at The Regent concert and the December 24, 1978 Dominion Theatre.

The set includes the vintage grenade and gun poster and the 4 original postcards of each band member. Costello commissioned acclaimed artist Todd Alcott to recreate pulp novel covers to represent songs from Armed Forces featuring Costello as the star of the cover in precarious situations.
