AllMusic Review by

Rykodisc launched its Elvis Costello reissue series with 2½ Years, a box set featuring his first three albums together with the previously promotional-only Live at the El Mocambo, which is only available in the box. Costello fans know the studio albums by heart and will be pleased by the remastering and bonus tracks, while the highly sought-after Live at the El Mocambo proves that in addition to being an extremely talented songwriter, Costello was a hell of a rocker.
