Elvis Costello: Alison/Welcome To The Working Week Single BUY 14 Record Shop Poster-1977

£80.00

Offered is an Original 38x25cm May 1977 Costello’s second single (pre-the Attractions, the backing band was visiting American country band Clover). Elvis was still holding on to his day job at this time. ‘Alison’ went on to be one of his signature songs which was released as BUY14 on Stiff Records.

Costello had yet to form a band when Stiff Records sent him into the studio to record his debut, My Aim Is True. So the label enlisted an American country rock act called Clover for support. Its members included guitarist John McFee, later of the Doobie Brothers, and a harp player named Huey Lewis (who skipped the sessions in favor of an Amsterdam vacation). Based in the Bay Area, Clover had come to England to conquer the London’s pub rock scene. But when punk broke, the band found itself scrambling for work. For providing a solidly unobtrusive backdrop to Costello’s sonic grenades on ‘My Aim Is True’, Clover earned a small bit of immortality, or at least an answer to a potential Jeopardy! question.
