I over the years have bought a number of CDs by Elvis Costello.
Working at the famous Harvard Sq. Music store, Briggs and Briggs I got the employee discount.
Two of my co-workers in the record department were opera guys. My other co-worker and I liked Elvis C. and we got laughed at.
They were the types who got the freebie passes to operas, oratorios and the like and I remember them talking about the night before when they heard and met the great Swedish soprano, Anne Sophie Von Otter. She could do no wrong.
Well, we would get booklets from the record companies of the new releases and what do you know? Anne Sophie Von Otter had a new one, a song cycle written by guess who? That’s right, Elvis Costello.
Revenge is sweet.
