"I'm a little bit Memphis'n'Nashville" - Marie Osmond

Fourth LP by Elvis Costello.

Something old: the deceptively-playful wordsmithery, from Armed Forces.

Something new: a grinning Elvis on the cover.

Something borrowed: Stax grooves; ironic retro.

Something almost Almost Blue: "Motel Matches", a hint of coming attractions.

The cover/ads featured more great Barney Bubbles artwork, IIRC.
