It was the episode where two straight-laced couples played by Richard Benjamin-Paula Prentice and Bill Murray-Gilda Radner spoof deadheads by talking about how much they love Joey Bishop and all of the shows they've seen him. Good stuff. I wish there was a clip.

They also played St. of Circumstance

I BELIEVE THEY PLAYED SNL A FEW TIMES. BACK IN THE MID 70s AND EARLY 80s SOME OF THE CAST MEMBERS OF SNL WERE FRIENDS WITH THE DEAD (BELUSHI AND FRANKEN MOSTLY.) THIS WAS THE ONLY ONE ON YOUTUBE THAT I COULD FIND. ITS A GOOD ONE THOUGH.

You'll probably wont find many of the SNL musical performances on YouTube. I think they're owned by Lorne Michaels production co.
Yeah, they played a couple of times, and there were soundchecks, and some out takes. Good stuff.

that was awesome... thanks!!

They also do a monkey and engineer that night I think...

a few of the dead history books mention how they hated the idea of doing this live... sound was expected to be bad and they only had 3 minutes.... but that was rocking! I just figured out the Garcia part on guitar: Do a triplet shuffle A7>B7>A7 hammering the shuffle with teh pinky. The riff between verses in an A pentatonic... I have some chores to do before leaving for the Playboy Jazz fest this after noon (I have to make a salad, and a fruit cobbler for desert) I'll be playing this on my guitar soon enough!!!
