My Aim Is True is the RIAA Platinum-certified debut album by English singer-songwriter Elvis Costello. The album was recorded at Pathway Studios in Highbury, London Borough of Islington, over the course of 1976 six four-hour studio sessions, in a total of approximately twenty-four hours. It was the first of five consecutive Costello albums produced by Nick Lowe and cost £2,000 to record

On My Aim Is True, Elvis' raw energy comes through in a way that's never completely recaptured on later records. While the songs range from mellow country twang to full-on, spitting assault, there's a strange cohesiveness to the album simply by virtue of its rough, rushed feel. Although it's a studio album, there's a latent energy to Nick Lowe's production that grants My Aim Is True all the immediacy of a live show. While Lowe's blunt production certainly enhances the record, the real star here, naturally, is Elvis himself

Elvis Costello’s debut album brought home to me just how timid Little Criminals really is. Costello’s best songs are anything but timid, but they’re as intelligent as some of Newman’s finest, as endearingly elusive in their meanings, and funny in the same bitter, self-deprecating manner. They are also, like Newman’s signature songs, very weird. Costello, a twenty-two-year-old ex-computer operator who grew up in Liverpool and now looks like an underfed, misanthropic Buddy Holly, is proof that not only are things quite strange in England today, they are capable of getting a lot stranger. My Aim Is True (the title is a line from Alison ) is in the Top Twenty in Britain; it is likely to go higher, as Costello recently managed to get himself busted for taking his electric guitar into the streets. The LP is already getting airplay on American FM stations, and a tour of sorts is set for late fall.

Written-By – Elvis Costello. Produced for Keepitasahobby productions. Early LP covers had a black & white photo on the front with red lettering, and several different coloured backs including: Pink back version (this one) Yellow back version -My Aim Is True Blue back version - My Aim Is True Orange back version - My Aim Is True Green back version - My Aim Is True. Later issues had added a green tint on the front picture and a green back (green tint cover - My Aim Is True). By any chance would anybody know if My Aim Is True came out on cassette tape in Japan. huge thank you from here. Reply See 1 reply Notify me Helpful.

The album includes the standout ballad 'Alison,' '(The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes,' 'Watching The Detectives,' and 'Less Than Zero' among others. I've been a fan of Elvis Costello since first hearing this album, in Twickenham as it happens. Anyway, I think Costello is brilliant. I think the people who didn't pick up this album immediately were either brain-dead, or had nasty "not invented here" issues. Alison has a new, and particularly poignant association.
