Get Happy!! is a studio album by Elvis Costello and the Attractions. The fourth album by Elvis Costello, his third with the Attractions, it is notable for being a dramatic break in tone from Costello's three previous albums, and for being heavily influenced by R&B, ska and soul music. The cover art was intentionally designed to have a "retro" feel, to look like the cover of an old LP with ring wear on both front and back.

Get Happy!! was born as much from sincere love for soul as it was for Elvis Costello's desire to distance himself from an unfortunate verbal faux pas where he insulted Ray Charles in an attempt to get Stephen Stills' goat. Either way, it resulted in a 20-song blue-eyed soul tour de force, where Costello doesn't just want to prove his love, he wants to prove his knowledge

During the Attractions' tour of the States in 1979 Elvis Costello famously became embroiled in a drunken spat with Stephen Stills and Bonnie Bramlett in a hotel bar. Not content with calling Stills 'old steel nose' he also, in typically irascible fashion then decided to really get up their noses by declaring that Ray Charles was 'blind, ignorant n er'. One shame-faced public apology later, the former Declan MacManus then went on to record an album dripping wit. oul. Even though it signalled the self-styled 'Imposter''s move towards somewhat suspect stylistic dilettantism (soon to follow was his country album, Almost Blue) Get Happy!! can still be considered the greatest coherent statement he ever created.

My copy has a cover with no 'worn' mark, so the image is pristine.

Dandr
Not designed that way though!

Quynaus
The sleeve is designed to mimic a well-worn original old soul sleeve, thus the ring wear image on front and back. In addition, the sides A & B have been reversed to mimic a misprint. By the way the UK version is the ONLY Version with the good low end! All other versions have no low end to speak of. Cheers Robert

Anyshoun
Side one actually begins with Love for tender... and side 2 with I can't stand up for falling down.... The paper labels on the record confirm this as do the CD reissues. I have a copy that has a large black & white poster.

HyderCraft
Never realised until this moment that the mark on the front cover is part of the artwork!
