Is this jam session with Ray, Jerry Lee and Fats available on CD?

It appears the recording was made in 1986:


“This is Rock & Roll as it is supposed to be played; live, unencumbered, and just for the unadulterated joy of playing the music that these musicians love to play. *Fats & Friends* was recorded in 1986 at the historic nightclub, Storyville, in New Orleans, in front of a crowd that loves its music, particularly when it is played well, and by locals (or those it has adopted as locals for whatever reason).

Fats Domino is the main ingredient here, he is the one who is being honored, it is his hometown, and he has his band with him. This includes long time collaborator Dave Bartholomew one of the main architects of the New Orleans sound, he is an arranger, bandleader trumpet player and a long time producer of music that came out of the Crescent City, going back into the 40s. Fats takes the bandstand and goes thru a small fraction of his hit songs and or songs he just felt like playing that night (seven songs) and then Jerry Lee Lewis takes the stage with a band that includes Ronnie Wood and whips thru three songs; two old time favorites and a newer one. And he vacates for Paul Shaffer and his All Star Band that includes Ronnie Wood and they do one cut and then the genius of Ray Charles who does two cuts. And that leads to the jam at the end”.

And it looks as if there IS a DVD of the event.
