Elvis Costello

When it’s this wintry outside, the best thing to do is grab your girl and a bottle of the good stuff and just stay home for once with some great tunes. Thankfully three of the most stylish men in music—two living and one, alas, dead—have obliged with a trio of need-to-hear new box sets: Elvis Costello (pictured), Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke and Nick Drake, who overdosed in 1974.

The Deluxe Edition of Costello’s debut 1977 album *My Aim Is True* features an astonishing 26 previously unreleased tracks including a live ’77 session from Nashville. The Radiohead box set includes the band’s seven full-length albums with enhanced and expanded artwork plus bonus material. And Drake’s *Fruit Tree* compilation features the autumnal alt-folkie’s three albums, *Five Leaves Left*, *Bryter Later* and *Pink Moon*, a dvd of the BBC’s Drake documentary *A Skin Too Few*, and a 108-page booklet discussing his life and work. If you don’t know Drake’s music, take it from us—this is the way to get clued in quick.
