I think I had this edition of Cream way back when.
Can't really remember anything about the Fabulous Poodles!

creem 

Now that you bring up that name, I vaguely remember a song called "Mirror Star" by them.  I think a friend of mine had the album back then.

 
One of those bands that got a lot of press, represented the Youth of Today, etc etc. but didn't get any airplay in the flyover states. I wasn't curious enough to special order the album and by the time I did hear it, years later, was pretty meh.

Elvis Costello is not short on talent, but his voice had changed quite a bit by the time he recorded this, no doubt.

Happens to a lot of singers - their voices get deeper and weaker as they get older due to any number of reasons - how they've treated them, whether they smoke or not, what sort of training they do, etc, etc.

Not just male singers either - Joni Mitchell, for example?

 
He was 25 when he recorded this.

Sitting in the hospital for an all-day infusion, earbuds jammed deep, volume 16 outta 10, doing my damn best to not belt out the lyrics to all the other sad sacks here. This is how a rock sound should be played! {#Drummer}

Great tune!  I love the Nick Lowe live acoustic version from a years ago.  So pure but gotta love Elvis Costello!

 
Bumped from 8 to 10 for me - lyrics and punk delivery are a perfect mix. Hard to imagine a better combo!

I've come to appreciate Elvis more as I have aged, but he is clearly a graduate of the Bob Dylan School of Annuciation.

If you're going to answer your own question, you could at least answer it correctly.
