Are you thinking of adding an Elvis Costello album? Have you checked that the album doesn't already exist under one of his many collaborations like Elvis Costello & The Attractions, The Imposter or Elvis Costello & The Imposters?

It's a common mistake. If you're not 100% sure of what you're about to do, check there first as it will save you the effort of adding it only to have the add voted down.... Thanks for listening.
