On this day in 1977, Elvis Costello’s first album, My Aim Is True, was released. I first heard it at a party in Athens, GA, soon thereafter, and from the first few notes I knew it was something I’d be listening to for years.

Here’s one of the cuts from that album, “Waiting For the End of the World,” performed in New Jersey in 1978.
