The Very Best of Elvis Costello is a compilation album on two compact discs by Elvis Costello, sampling his recorded work from the years 1977 through 1998. First issued on Polygram Records on 21 September 1999, it was re-released less than two years later on Rhino Records as the first entry in their comprehensive Costello reissue series. A one-disc version was also released. All songs written by Elvis Costello unless otherwise indicated.

Elvis Costello seems to have an aversion to presenting his work in a logical, comprehensive fashion, if the double-disc The Very Best of Elvis Costello is any indication. Like its predecessor, Girls Girls Girls, it sprawls over two discs, with very little regard to chronology or style, baffling and enticing listeners in equal measure

Whether it was the Holiday Inn incident or just the natural process of growing up, Costello slowly unwound as the 80s gathered pace. He still unleashed unbridled scorn now and again – on Margaret Thatcher on 1989’s Tramp the Dirt Down and on Attractions bassist Bruce Thomas on 1991’s How to Be Dumb – but he also appeared to become more reflective and less confrontational.

During that time, Costello went through several artistic transformations, from angry new wave rocker ( Radio Radio ), to country stylist (a cover of George Jones’ A Good Year for the Roses with legendary country music producer Billy Sherrill), to acoustic balladeer ( Indoor Fireworks ), always serving up caustic lyrics ( Man Out of Time ) and frayed emotions ( I Want You ) with a dose of bitterness an. An excellent cover of Sam & Dave’s I Can’t Stand Up for Falling Down is given an amphetamine-fueled run-through, while his version of producer Nick Lowe’s (What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace Love and Understanding is definitive.
