The Very Best of Elvis Costello is a compilation album on two compact discs by Elvis Costello, sampling his recorded work from the years 1977 through 1998. First issued on Polygram Records on 21 September 1999, it was re-released less than two years later on Rhino Records as the first entry in their comprehensive Costello reissue series. A one-disc version was also released. All songs written by Elvis Costello unless otherwise indicated.

Elvis Costello seems to have an aversion to presenting his work in a logical, comprehensive fashion, if the double-disc The Very Best of Elvis Costello is any indication. Like its predecessor, Girls Girls Girls, it sprawls over two discs, with very little regard to chronology or style, baffling and enticing listeners in equal measure

the El Mocambo album and The Very Best of Elvis Costello and The Attractions 1977-86, a greatest hits collection. In 2001, Rhino Records would launch another Costello reissue program, taking a different approach than Rykodisc and Demon (see Elvis Costello main page). In 2007, Costello's 1977–86 catalogue was re-released by Hip-O Records, the reissue division of Costello's then current label, Universal Music. Brutal Youth is an album by Elvis Costello released in 1994. This is the first album Costello recorded with his band the Attractions since Blood and Chocolate (1986). The several albums in between were recorded with session musicians. Brutal Youth was the third, and most recent of Costello's albums, to peak at number two in the UK Albums Chart, following on from Armed Forces (1979) and Get Happy!!

Biffy Clyro is a three-piece alternative rock band which formed in Kilmarnock, Scotland in 1995. The band consists of Simon Neil (vocals, guitar), James Johnston (bass, vocals) and his twin brother Ben (drums, vocals).

This large collection of Elvis Costello hits (42 in all) is very inviting in that it digs a little deeper than the 22-song predecessor 'Best Of' compilation from 1994. In this set, there are a number of tracks that aren't truly radio-friendly, but are still worthwhile selections, such as BIG TEARS, RIOT ACT, SULKY GIRL, and arguably LIPSTICK VOGUE. I like this approach that ultimately expands the boundaries a little, and gives the listener a broad array of his music. Of course, there are stellar tracks like VERONICA that can't be found on the 1994 release
