Elvis Costello and the Attractions
Old Waldorf
San Francisco, California
November 15, 1977



This is a KSAN b-cast that could be said to have some historical significance. These sets are Elvis and the Attractions VERY FIRST performances in the U.S. The first of two nights of two shows per night. There are many live recordings of this early material so it isn't unique in that way, but this is a great live to 2 track recording and the best possible lineage. Many Elvis collecters have had a version of this for years and so the performance is known but not at this quality. While this has been traded a bit from this DAT; this I believe is an upgrade for most folks.
