The Dead and the Beach Boys

#55864 2 years, 11 months ago
The Grateful Dead played Riot in cell-block #9 once - with the Beach Boys at the Filmore in 1971.

They played the song on the GD channel a couple of nights ago. I was driving, the tune was blasting, and then the song scared the crap out of me. If you listen to this version you'll see why. Reminds me of the old AAMCO commercials.

Here's a link to a "different" type of show. Riot in cellblock #9 is song 8.

Funny to hear the beach boys talk about "being all stoned and drunk it was great" (during good vibrations).

Okie from Muskogee is my favorite joint song from this show, also the only time played.

Thanks so much for sharing. sugar magnolia is just splendid. very short and tight...dire wolf, help me Rhonda..bird song...sweet. Billy is sounding so great on this show, esp. lovelight..so jazzy..awesome. Two california bands ...and on the east coast...so cool. You can hear how much fun they are having.
Today i found a bird in the lot of my job, prob hit a window at the hotel, he dies like 1 minute after fluttering his/her wings . Crazy, one more minute later and i never would of seen this. Thought if he was flapping his wings maybe her feet were injured, but not dead. It was crazy..what timing. and bird song has helped me remeber to get by so much lately. good to hear it now. but that cell block and all beach boy songs are so cool. thnX

I was driving down the highway and it sounds exactly like a cop was pulling me over. Every time they played those darn sirens in the song.

Remind me of this funny clip from Curb Your Enthusiasm (a very funny show imo)

The dead released this show as a cd so you can't get it off archives. I bet some of the other users here can help you find this unique show.
