Playboy After Dark

#115427 2 years, 8 months ago
If you haven't seen this it's some classic stuff.

Recorded: 18 January 1969

Check out the discussion between Hugh and Jerry followed by Mountains Of The Moon with just Jerry, Bob, Phil, and Tom and then the whole band playing St. Stephen with Pigpen on congas.

What a bunch of baby faces, that's some great video!! Love the visual effects in St. Stephen, and I want Jerry's poncho, too. Oh to have been in that room, preferably in a tie-dye rather than a suit, though!

I watch this video at least once a month. The Mnts of the Moon sends shivers up my spine. Them were the days!!
I went walkin' out last summer
Tryin' to find a breath of air
I went walkin' on the mountain
A friend had told me I'd find you there

Forget where I read this but Owsley was pissed that Playboy mansion refused to let him do the sound because they were union, he dosed the whole crowd and no one could figure out to run the soundboard so Oswley got his way. Hefner had heard about potential dosing so he had a bodyguard open cans of Coke for him and then hand it to him so he knew it would be all right. The whole crowd by the end of the night was naked and acting crazy. Hefner tried his best to connect with the Dead, but just didn't get the scene.

I think you're right Tony. Plus by the end of that video you can tell folks are starting to let loose. Clothes coming off would be the next step!!

Of all the tunes to pick to pull the freaks out of the stiffs, subtle, sublime, yet fully out of the box. It's a shame ol' Hef couldn't drop his guard. Hadn't heard it was a naked fest by the end of the night. Bobby on the make from the get-go, how could one not be. Hope Jerry had a prize winning rodeo. What a sweet man.
