When Costello’s first record was released in 1977, his bristling cynicism and anger linked him with the punk and new wave explosion. Though the main connection he had with the punks was his unbridled passion; he tore through rock’s back pages taking whatever he wanted, as well as borrowing from country, Tin Pan Alley, pop, reggae, and other musical genres. Over his career, that musical eclecticism distinguished him through his fiercely literate lyrics and his richly diverse music.
