Free U.S. shipping!  A sealed copy of the U.S. picture disc-only LP My Aim is True/This Year’s Model by Elvis Costello, issued only as a promotional item.

This item has been sold.


Offered for sale is a still sealed limited edition promotional picture disc-only LP titled My Aim is True/This Year’s Model by Elvis Costello.

About this copy: This copy of My Aim is True/This Year’s Model is a sealed promotional copy on the Columbia label, released in 1979.

As the album is sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.

The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears or holes, except for two tiny breaks at the right hand corners.  Beautiful copy!

A nice copy of a scarce Elvis Costello item.

Background: Issued at about the same time as Armed Forces in early 1979, My Aim is True/This Year’s Model was issued to radio stations to encourage play of material from Elvis Costello’s first two LPs.

That’s an odd thing to do, since the sound quality of picture discs makes them unsuitable for airplay.

This album was released only as a picture disc, and that picture disc was issued only as a promotional item.

Side one contains tracks from My Aim is True:

  • Welcome To The Working Week
  • Miracle Man
  • (The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes
  • Less Than Zero
  • Alison
  • Watching The Detectives

Side two contains tracks from This Year’s Model:

  • Hand In Hand
  • No Action
  • This Year’s Girl
