Elvis Costello and The Great American Beauties
Great American Music Hall
San Fransisco, CA
September 30, 2022 (Late Show)

The Great American Beauties are . . .

Austin de Lone - keyboards, accordion
Larry Campbell - guitar, fiddle, vocals
Teresa Williams - vocals
Ruth Davies - bass
Paul Revelli - drums
Allan Mayes - vocals, guitar
Jim Lauderdale - vocals, guitar

Elvis Costello Sings Hunter/Garcia - a benefit for Prader-Willi Homes of California

Great show for an even greater cause. Elvis Costello puts a crack band together and plays two shows (early and late) of mostly Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter songs to benefit Prader-Willi Homes of California. PWHC is a nonprofit dedicated to creating a state-of-the-art residential center in the San Francisco Bay Area for people with Prader-Willi syndrome. Austin and Lesley de Lone are the founders. More info here . . .

Gravenb recorded both the early and late shows. The late show is the longer, better, and better sounding of the two.  Several Hunter/Garcia songs, a Rusty reunion, and other various tunes make up a great sounding and unique show. Caroline de Lone's opening song is included, but you can leave it off you version if you wish and the EC part will be complete. Samples below.

24bit 48K recording.  If you still burn to CD, it's pretty easy to convert the files to CD specs.  Most burning programs do it internally.  If burning, divide the discs before Ship Of fools.  If not, the show will play seamless.
