Elvis was in good spirits on this hot Perth afternoon. The show included two departures from a typical EC+I festival show. For one, the setlist deviated from focusing on hits by including two songs by Jesse Winchester, who died on April 11. Elvis chatted about him before doing Quiet About It (which EC did on a tribute album in 2012) and then quickly went into Payday (which was included on Kojak Variety). And then John McFee joined them on stage for the last four songs. It's particularly great to hear John doing his lead guitar lines for Alison, which makes the performance sound much more like the original record than Elvis otherwise achieves. McFee was able to join by virtue of the Doobie Brothers being on the festival bill. They finished playing (on the second stage) half an hour before Elvis started. There were two acoustic guitars (large and small) on stage behind Elvis but he didn't use either of them. Instead, the set focused on classic-era rock songs played electrically, mostly with his Jazzmaster. The only recent song was a minute or so of "Walk Us Uptown" played within "Chelsea". It was a pretty heavy Imposters version, not at all Hip Hoppy. Elvis took frequent drinks from a cup, and in the second half of the show his voice started to get a bit hoarse. Nothing like the bad old days of the 1980s and early 90s when he got quite croaky at times, but hoarser than I've heard him since a Rude 5 gig in Perth in 1991. The Imposters did what the Imposters do, with skill and precision. - David Pannell
