Good luck finding it. Here's what the AMG says:

After three albums -- This Year's Model, Armed Forces, and Get Happy -- with Elvis Costello, the Attractions got to make their own album with Mad About The Boy. Not surprisingly, with its organ textures (courtesy of Steve Nieve) and martial drumming (by Pete Thomas), the album recreates the sound the band had achieved on the Costello albums, while the lyrics share the same arch attitude, if not the facility, of Costello's. Basically, this is a curiosity for Costello fans. It was issued with a free seven-inch EP containing four Steve Nieve keyboard instrumentals "from the film Outline Of A Hairdo." The album was never released in the U.S. [The Demon CD reissue contains the entire original LP and the entire Diary of a Haircut EP.] ~ William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide

In moments of clarity (like this week) when I realize that I am, in fact, MATWB I often have EC songs (and V often Almost Blue) swimming around my head during the day (and the looooong nights. Sooo, although I've not heard MATWB, I voted for Almost Blue.

I LOVE that song :!:

Er, um, that's all well and good, but you didn't vote for the song at all, but rather for the Almost Blue album, you know, "Sweet Dreams" and "Honey Hush" etc.
