Recorded on his 2005 The Delivery Man tour, Elvis Costello's first live DVD is a winner. Caught in Memphis – a reflection of his love of Southern R&B and country, as well as the landscape for the recording of his most recent album – with the tightly knit Imposters backing outfit, Costello plunders his extensive catalog and adds some surprises. The show took place at Memphis' Hi Tone Café, an intimate 250-seat joint packed with Costello fans, some of whom waited for hours for tickets. Taped in crisp but not slick high-definition video and surround sound by a professional camera crew, it looks and sounds great too. For better or worse, every bead of sweat and hair of Costello's scraggly beard is crystal clear, bringing him into your living room in as much presence as two dimensions will allow.
