    60s dead = coolest band around, even if they were a bunch of punks.

    @blewj
    You mean the porn groove era?
    That was my least favorite sound from the Dead.
    from '67 - '72 was the best in my opinion.
    But hey, were both fans, so that's all that matters!

    @birdlives46 true, its the closest ill get.

    @blewj this ain't disco dead yo. 77 was disco dead. this is early incantations of the country dead, which blossomed into jazzy dead, then alt/jazz dead, then disco dead, then, after many years of awesome music, finally became dead dead. long live all of the dead!!

    Gawd, were they fierce and tightly wound - Garcia showboats about 8:40 - great fucking clip!

    @spacemeddle I'm actually reading Phil Lesh's book right now and he says that the band chose to not be filmed. The guys who got the MPF up and running wanted to film every act and sell it as a movie, but the Dead declined the offer to be filmed because they did not know where all the money would be ending up (aka a bunch of bum record execs profiting off the beauty of the event.)

    f*ing raaaaaaw! gritty, nasty Grateful Dead. Epic!

    when you type in "some got six months" this vid comes up

    ...which is strange because it's in the lyrics but they're barely decipherable

    Kinda funny how this is the exact same lineup as the one from Feb 1971-Oct-1971 -man how much these guys grew as a band in only 4 years is incredible

    Why would you come to see a Grateful Dead video, just to dislike one of their quintessential songs? If you don't like Viola Lee Blues, then you don't like the Grateful Dead!

    This video proves that Phil Lesh can't remember what happned at Monterey. Clearly, the Dead WERE filmed. It was Big Brother's manager who refused to have that band filmed. After their set was well-received, Janis Joplin persuaded John Phillips to allow the band to play again for the cameras despite their manager's objections.

    Viola Lee Blues was not filmed in its entirety because the song went on for too long (this is according to D.A. Pennebaker, the film's director).

  14. bf8ca27 says:

    No one seems to remember Monterey the same way. Clearly, the entire song was filmed despite Pennebaker's comments to the contrary. Weird!
