What’s So Funny About Peace, Love, and Overcharging?

Elvis Costello doesn’t want you to buy his record company’s upcoming release, The Return of the Spectacular Spinning Songbook,¬†which includes a CD, DVD, 10-inch vinyl record, and 40-page tribute book autographed by him because it’s too expensive. He calls the $202.66 price “either a misprint or a satire.” Instead he recommends you buy Ambassador Of Jazz, a collection of 10 remastered Louis Armstrong albums he says is “vastly superior” and costs less than $150. If that’s still too rich for your blood, there’s always a Billie Joe Armstrong CD, like Green Day’s American Idiot for $10.76 on Amazon.com.
