Billboard 200 - #28, 1980

"... some sentimental part of me is taken with its reflexive passion and half-finished serendipity ... B."
- Robert Christgau

"... these alternate renditions and the range of material on the album as a whole make Taking Liberties seem less like a songwriter's showcase (though it certainly proves that Costello is prolific) than a panorama of production experiments and disparate styles."
- Rolling Stone

This North American-only compilation was released in 1980 and contains many of the tracks and B-sides that had appeared in the UK but were never available in North America.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
