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. The title Kojak Variety refers to the name of a variety store in Barbados near where the album was recorded; Costello was amused by the seemingly random name of the enterprise, and in a similar spirit, decided to apply the name to his album.
