The best covers albums often contain songs that the performer just loved as a fan while growing up. That's the case with Elvis Costello's Kojak Variety, where he takes a rootsy Americana approach on classics by Dylan ("I Threw It All Away"), Bacharach/David ("Please Stay"), Mose Allison ("Everybody's Crying Mercy") and other eccentric songwriting masters. The set also puts a spotlight on Costello's growth as a torch singer and the impeccable strength of his pickup studio band, which includes James Burton, aka Elvis Presley's greatest guitarist.
