My Favorite Album with Jeremy Dylan

Jul 14, 2022

Instead of watching a three hour movie about Elvis Presley, hit play on today’s episode for a shorter but no less exhaustive deep dive on the real Elvis, Elvis Costello, as actor/comedian and host of the great Dead Eyes podcast Connor Ratliff joins me to make the case for what he considers the ultimate Elvis album, 1991's 'Mighty Like a Rose'. We talk about the album’s underrated place in the Costello canon, I check in with the album’s producer Mitchell Froom for his memories of making the record, Elvis’s dramatic change of look and how it impacted the way the record was received, how the album showcases every string on Costello’s bow, the Costello/McCartney that never was and more.
