This album is in excellent condition, with only some minor scuffing on the album sleeve.  The vinyl album itself is scratch free and in great condition.  This is the 1987 reissue vinyl by Liberation Records. Here's some of the albums particulars:

My Aim Is True is the debut album by English singer-songwriter Elvis Costello.

The album was recorded at Pathway Studios in HollowayLondon Borough of Islington, over the course of 1976 during late-night studio sessions, in a total of twenty-four hours. It was the first of five consecutive Costello albums produced by Nick Lowe. The backing band was made up of members of Clover. They were uncredited on the original release due to contractual difficulties; some early publicity for the album identified the backing band as "The Shamrocks".

In 2003, the TV network VH1 named My Aim Is True the 80th greatest album of all time. In 2003, the album was ranked number 168 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. In 2004, it was ranked 37 of the top 100 albums of the 1970s by Pitchfork which reported the album to be "held by many as the most impressive debut in pop music history." In 2007, the album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

  • The original UK Stiff and US Columbia LPs and US Columbia CD faded the track "Mystery Dance" at the end. When Demon issued the CD in the UK, the track had a cold ending, with reverb added. This same ending was used on the subsequent remastered Demon CD and US Rykodisc CD. The Rhino 2-CD set and both single-disc and 2CD editions of the Hip-O discs (all three sharing identical masterings) restore the original faded ending.
