Elvis Costello & the Attractions – Watching The Detectives (Live in 1978)

“Watching The Detectives” was Elvis Costello’s first top 40 hit in the UK. It’s from his debut album My Aim Is True, and Costello considers it his favorite song from the early days of his career. It’s always been one of my favorite Elvis Costello songs, so it was gratifying to come across this early live version from 1978. Part of the treasure trove of shows that Music Vault has from the Capitol Theater in Passaic, NJ. Watch the Attractions in action.
