You’re on a roll.
This was Costello’s first record with the attractions. Today’s no Google trivia questions is who backed him on his first record?
Clover, or maybe The Clovers, of which Huey Lewis was a member. Though he doesn’t play on the album as far as I know.
What do I win?
Clover is correct, Clover was a percursor (along with Soundhole) to Huey Lewis & the News. Huey did not appear on the record, but they are good friends and Huey was the mc at the now legendary Elvis Costello “Spinning Songbook” show at the Warfield in SF.
I was lucky enough to catch the “Spinning Songbook” show but missed the 2007 My Aim is True reunion show at the Great American Music Hall.
