Gladys Knight did the original, but EC played Marvin Gaye's version on the radio in 1983 and included it in his Vanity Fair list in 2000. The Temptations recorded it too.

Re: Cait has a couple of shows coming up with fellow Pogue Spider Stacy, in New Orleans, Dec. 18

Elvis has always credited Cait as the primary writer of "Baby Plays Around." In 1989: Cait wrote this one. I went to the store to buy a paper and when I came back she had sung it all into a tape recorder. Also in 1989: "Cait wrote it while I went out to buy a paper," Costello say...

This is probably "The End of Our Road," which was indeed recorded first by Gladys Knight — but it was Marvin Gaye's version that EC played in a 1983 guest DJ spot and included in the Costello's 500 list in 2000.

Re: Cait has a couple of shows coming up with fellow Pogue Spider Stacy, in New Orleans, Dec. 18

Interview with Cait includes:

You co-wrote about a handful of songs with Elvis Costello when you were with him, on albums like King of America, Blood & Chocolate, Spike and Mighty Like a Rose. Are any of those songs close to you or songs you’d like to perform?

No.

verbal gymnastics wrote:How would this be an unprecedented release based on one of Elvis Costello and the Attractions most celebrated albums as per the original press release?

An album of Spanish reworkings of all the songs from This Year's Model (for example) would fit that description.

That's not a bad guess. Jimmy Fallon joked about EC and the Roots remaking Get Happy!! when they played "Black and White World" on his show not long after playing "High Fidelity."

Re: New release based on one of Elvis Costello and the Attractions most celebrated albums!!

Something from the Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers tour does seem like the most obvious guess, but it seems kind of late to release something from a tour than ended in July 2017.

The 40th anniversary of the release of Get Happy!! is coming up in February.
