    The Very Best of Elvis Costello and The Attractions 1977–86 is a compilation album by English singer-songwriter Elvis Costello, released on June 21, 1994. The album features a selection of Costello's most popular and critically acclaimed songs, all of which were recorded with his backing band, The Attractions, between 1977 and 1986.

    The album includes hit singles such as "Alison", "Watching the Detectives", and "Oliver's Army", as well as album tracks such as "Pump It Up", "Accidents Will Happen", and "Shipbuilding".   

    Musically, The Very Best of Elvis Costello and The Attractions 1977–86 showcases Costello's distinctive blend of punk, new wave, and classic pop influences. The Attractions' tight, energetic playing and Costello's acerbic lyrics and vocal style are a key part of the album's sound.

    The compilation was well received by critics and was a commercial success, reaching number two on the UK Albums Chart and number 53 on the US Billboard 200. The album has since been certified gold in the US and platinum in the UK.
