2015 EU reissue of the 1980 album on 180g  2xLP+ MP3 -Elvis Costello and the Attractions' masterful Get Happy!! is largely believed born of national scandal. While in a Holiday Inn bar, the English singer attempted to end an annoying conversation by baiting Stephen Stills with outrageous, offensive racial remarks about Ray Charles and James Brown. With everyone involved inebriated, the details are unclear, but the fallout – death threats, radio embargos, protests – is infamous. The upshot? Costello and company retreated, scrapped a planned record, and created the soulful genius that is Get Happy!!, the band's fourth consecutive five-star effort.

Costello and the Attractions' 1980 Masterpiece Expands Rock Palette and Touches on Every Aspect of Classic Soul and R&B.

Tracks:
A1 I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down

A4 B Movie
A5 Motel Matches

Clearly, the group is motivated, and the leader brings some of his very finest songs to the table, including "High Fidelity," "Riot Act," "Motel Matches," and "The Imposter." While some believe the drunken incident caused Costello to shelve a planned new-wave-leaning effort for the soul-stoked Get Happy!!, the vocalist claims that his ability to find so many great soul records in America from 1977 through 1979 inspired the group to change course. Whatever the cause, Get Happy!! is a start-to-finish wonder.
