Eleanor Rigby
Composer: John Lennon / Paul McCartney

An instrumental version of Eleanor Rigby was performed about 10 times by the Jerry Garcia Band in 1980. An instrumental version of the song was performed by Phil Lesh & Friends.

Eleanor Rigby was written by Paul McCartney. Originally recorded by the Beatles in April 1966 and released as a single in August 1966. McCartney later said in an interview; "I got the name Rigby from a shop ... and I think the Eleanor was from the actress Eleanor Bron, the actress we worked with in the film.".
