Elvis Costello’s new album, National Ransom, deals with the recent financial collapse. Lest you have any doubts, check out the album cover (below). Costello describes the recording as “… for the bankrupt times, whenever they may be.”

The CD is the usual $12.99, but I was surprised to see the MP3s of the disc at Amazon for $3.99. Grab some while it lasts . . .
