A thrash punk version of a Hank Williams song opens this intriguing collection, a real treat. As you'd expect, Costello's versions of country classics are more tortured than the original - compare him with Gram Parsons on How Much I've Lied. Slick production (Billy Sherril, who also wrote Too Far Gone) and packaging, and a focus both on well-known (Parsons, Haggard, Mathis) and less well-known writers, make a good personal introduction to the genre and to Costello's influences.
