"Spectacle - Elvis Costello With... Season Two" 2xDVD

7 episodes of Elvis Costello's live interview and performance program, whereas the legendary singer/songwriter sits down and chats with musical stars, and often joins in with them on-stage for some fun and exclusive performances.

This second season includes such names as Bono and The Edge of U2, Neko Case, Jesse Winchester, Richard Thompson, Lyle Lovett, and 2 episodes of conversation and music with Bruce Springsteen.

Costello knows his stuff, and his insight and enthusiasm is palpable and literate. He's a music host for music lovers, and this is a wonderful program full of great (and often intimate) performances like U2's "Stuck In A Moment", RIchard Thompson's "Shoot Out The Lights", Costello and Ron Sexsmith's "Everyday I Write The Book", and John Prine's "Lake Marie". Americana fans take note...this is a treasure trove worthy of repeat viewings. (MVD Visual)
