Armed Forces is the third studio album from Elvis Costello & The Attractions, released in January 1979 and produced by Nick Lowe. Costello was 23 years old when he wrote and recorded the music for the album. This super deluxe edition was personally curated by Elvis Costello, and fully embraces Barney Bubbles' epic package art. It features 9 pieces of vinyl, 7 custom notebooks containing updated liner notes from Costello and his handwritten lyrics from the era. The album receives a brand-new remaster from the original production master tapes with the sonic fidelity matching the original 1979 UK pressing. Along with selections from the Hollywood High show, there are 3 more concerts, 23 never released live songs including the full PinkPop 1979 set and highlights from the notorious Riot at The Regent concert and the December 24, 1978 Dominion Theatre.
