Elvis Costello And The Attractions ‎– I Wanna Be Loved (12″)

From 1984 and a later release from Elvis Costello and the Attractions, a cover of an old soul classic by Teacher Edition. It has backing vocals by Green Gartside (Scritti Politti) It has a dreamy, synth enhanced backing. Masterly produced by Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley, the 12″ mix works really well, I’d totally forgotten about the track. A bonus is having the theme tune from “Scully” , “Turning The Town Red” as the extra track. Going back to the earlier sound of the band, with witty lyrics and strummed guitar.

Superb vid by the way.
