First time on CD for this historic 1978 performance, the second installment in the Costello Show live performance series. Features 20 tracks, 11 of them previously unreleased. Elvis Costello was 23 years old when he performed a sold-out concert at the epicenter of the entertainment universe: The auditorium at Hollywood High School. It was June 4, 1978 and he had been introduced to America with a controversial appearance on Saturday Night Live. Just three months prior to this Hollywood High concert, This Year's Model had become his second album but first as Elvis Costello And the Attractions, with the singer/songwriter joined by keyboardist Steve Nieve, bassist Bruce Thomas and drummer Pete Thomas. Producing the concert would be Nick Lowe, who would helm Costello's first five albums.
