Elvis Costello urging fans not to buy $225 box set

November 30, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
Have you ever heard of a musician telling fans not to buy his album? Crazy as it may sound, that's exactly what Elvis Costello is doing.

The singer has a new $225 box set for sale, just in time for the holidays.

Instead of encouraging fans to run out and buy it, he said they'd be better off spending their hard-earned cash on a Louis Armstrong box set.

Costello said the $225 being charged for his box set appears to be either a misprint or a satire.
