ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Musicians from around the world pay tribute to the words and music of the incomparable Elvis Costello on Beyond Belief: A Tribute to Elvis Costello, a compilation on SpyderPop Records.

Co-produced by longtime Costello fans Olivia Frain and John M. Borack, the collection will feature artists putting their own spin on both Costello classics and deep cuts. Listeners will be treated to everything from 30-something-year-old gems from the new wave era to musical infants from Costello’s more recent work. Proceeds from the release will benefit the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, a non-profit organization that donates musical instruments to under-funded school music programs.

Indeed Beyond Belief!
A stellar line up of artists cover and interpret one of the greatest songwriters of this generation Elvis Costello. I had been waiting anxiously for this release for a while now but it was so worth the wait! 50 songs on three discs and it still flew by when listening. Is that a testament to the artists performing or the songwriter himself? Probably both. Some of the highlights for me? David Myhr's "Veronica" (a Costello co-write with Paul McCartney) is pretty true to the original, bouncy and fun, joyful and whimsical. He does an amazing job! "(I Don't Want To Go To) Chelsea by The Stars Explode and a "Kinder Murder" by the Popdudes and are perfect back to back. Both great! Love Kelly Ryan's "Monkey To Man" and The Rubinoos "Pump It Up" do just that! So fun!

Other favorites? Matthew Sweet's "Allison", Paul Myers "So Like Candy" (another McCartney co-write) and "Accidents Will Happen" by Throwback Suburbia as well as "This Year's Girl" by Honeychain, and "Almost Blue" by Nik Heyward and the 13 Satellites. It's Mike Viola's version of "God Give Me Strength" though, the Elvis co write with Burt Bacharach, that steals the show for me. Absolutely gorgeous. Lifted not only be a string section of sheer beauty but by his fragile vocal as well. Mike Viola (The Candy Butchers, Ryan Adams) has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard and his rendition of this song is powerful! And devastating!

Great job to all who put this together! 50 songs! And my hat's off to the great Elvis Costello as well for being so prolific and providing such an amazing soundtrack for almost 40 years!
