Elvis Costello Thinks His New Box Set Is Overpriced
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Here's a holiday gift so expensive, even the guy who made it thinks it's overpriced. Elvis Costello has a box set. It includes three CDs, a vinyl record and a coffee table book. To get all this, however, you're asked to pay $225.
Costello himself seems shocked. On a website, he declares: We are unable to recommend this lovely item, as the price appears to be either a misprint or a satire. It's MORNING EDITION.
