SANTA MONICA, CA--(Marketwire - March 5, 2012) - On April 3, 2012, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) will release the deluxe edition of Elvis Costello & the Imposters: The Return Of The Spectacular Spinning Songbook!!!. The digipak includes a CD, DVD and 28 page booklet filled with musings from Napoleon Dynamite (aka Elvis Costello), the emcee of The Spectacular Spinning Songbook show.

The CD and DVD will also be available separately.

Recorded over a 2-night stand at The Wiltern in Los Angeles on May 11 and 12, 2011, the first disc is a CD recording culled from both nights' performances, shows which The Los Angeles Times said were "the kind of uniquely invigorating experience that warrants a buzzword all its own: inspiring."

The DVD is from Costello's show on May 12, 2011, including a special guest appearance by the Bangles. The DVD contains bonus footage including an alternate intro by Napoleon Dynamite and behind-the-scenes moments captured with the Imposters -- Steve Nieve (keyboards), Pete Thomas (drums), and Davey Faragher (bass) -- as well as extra performances not included in the main set of the show.

"The Spectacular Spinning Songbook" made its first appearance in 1986 at the Beverly Theatre in Los Angeles during the "Costello Sings Again Tour." Last year, Elvis Costello and the Imposters set out on The Revolver Tour and, for the first time in 25 years, Costello once again allowed his set-list to be chosen by "The Spectacular Spinning Songbook," a monumental game-show type wheel spun by select fans and featuring songs from his latest critically acclaimed release National Ransom, plus new renditions of hits, rarities and very unexpected covers. Expanded from its initial short run in the spring to encompass summer and fall dates, the tour was greeted by popular acclaim and rave notice across the country, with Rolling Stone reporting, "Costello worked the stage like a burlesque-club emcee, cracking wise at a mile a minute and spinning a dandy's walking stick."

A super-deluxe 3-disc (CD, DVD, 10" vinyl EP) live box set of Elvis Costello & the Imposters: The Return Of The Spectacular Spinning Songbook!!! was released this past December.
