Purchase EC concert DVDs

Here are some Elvis Costello live concert DVDs we recommend.

- rare Elvis Costello concert video

In early 2007, I got an email from a guy who had several VHS tapes of Elvis Costello footage he had collected over the years, so, I bought them ... not really knowing what I would get. The tapes -- while fairly poor quality -- representated an amazing historical record of Costello concerts, interviews, recording sessions, talk show appearances and more. I converted them to digital and am offering some of the more interesting stuff below. Some are so-so. Some are really great. Enjoy. All files are Windows Media Player (wmv).
