Elvis Costello’s second album for Warner Bros., 1991’s Mighty Like A Rose is to be reissued as a limited edition gold-coloured vinyl pressing.
The album features the Beach Boys spoofing single ‘The Other Side of Summer’ which got a fair amount of airplay and coverage at the time, although it only managed to reach #43 in the UK album chart.
Mitchell Froom co-produced the album with Costello and Kevin Killen and Mighty Like A Rose was the third long-player (after Spike and Flowers in the Dirt) to feature the fruits of the McCartney/MacManus songwriting sessions with the inclusion of the songs ‘So Like Candy’ and ‘Playboy To A Man’ (both, in demo form, were included on the 2017 Archive Collection reissue of Paul’s Flowers in the Dirt).
The LP is pressed on 180g gold-coloured vinyl, and comes with an insert. These are numbered and limited to 2000 copies worldwide.
Mighty Like A Rose is reissued on 15 July 2022 via Music On Vinyl. Pre-order from the SDE shop using this link or the button below.
