A rambunctious carnival atmosphere pervades The Return of the Spectacular Spinning Songbook, the live CD and DVD concert performance from Elvis Costello released last fall only as a $300+ “super deluxe” box set (and promptly badmouthed by Costello for the price tag).

Revived 25 years after he launched the concept in 1986, the show revolves, so to speak, around Costello and his audience working together to randomly choose songs from his expansive catalog via the spinning of a 16-foot giant wheel with 40 song titles, concepts and “joker tabs” for “artist’s choice”.

The format, popular with fans, allowed Costello to play a variety of roles during the 2 1/2 hour concert from game show emcee to folksy song statesman, carnival barker, aging punker and stand up comic. These performances, recorded at L.A.’s Wiltern Theater last May, show a feisty frontman ready to rock, leading his Impostors through rag-tag, raucous versions of many well-known Costello classics and a cover of the Stones’ “Out of Time”. Note: the CD and DVD each contain exclusive songs (listing below).
