Kojak Variety is a 1995 album by Elvis Costello, composed of cover songs written by others. Costello's rendering of "Days" by The Kinks had previously appeared on the album Until the End of the World, the 1991 soundtrack to Wim Wenders' film of the same name. The remainder of the songs were recorded specifically for this album.

With Almost Blue, Elvis Costello wanted to be a honky tonker. With Kojak Variety, he's a crooner, picking forgotten tunes by both minor and major artists (anyone from Screamin' Jay Hawkins to Bob Dylan). From his song selections to the amp;B band, Costello doesn't make any obvious moves. Yet that doesn't mean that the record is difficult - it just shows the depths of Costello's affection for music and record collecting (which is also clear from his loving, detailed liner notes).

Elvis Costello's Kojak Variety (1995). Album by Elvis Costello. is a cover of. Strange by Screamin' Jay Hawkins (1964). Hidden Charms by Howlin' Wolf (1963).
