Garcia plays lead acoustic guitar for "Mountains Of The Moon" and then you can hear him hand it down and seamlessly pick up his new 1969 electrick Gibson SG with that Vox Crybaby wah-wah peddle. This was the Dead's entire performance at the "Dream Bowl" benefit on that Beautiful Day. The band were about to record the "Live/Dead" double/album anthem. You can hear it all over it's crushed psychedelic tailored coats and mystakenil top cats. I mean well, I did.
P.S....there was a Bay band called "Country Weather" back then?
Strangely enough George Harrison from the Beatles produced Black and Blue. And B.O.C. did Steppenwolf Born to be Wild. I also got a Grateful Dead album. They had absolutely nothing to do with the other bands.
DID WE PLAY? WERE WE GOOD?” is what Jerry Garcia asked the first person whose face wasn’t dissolving when they slid off of the stage after playing FOR JUST SIX MINUTES….”I thought we’d been up there for six HOURS!” ♣♠ SEE….HEAR….NOW….THEN ♦♥ SEE! VIVID 35mm Kodak Eastmancolor film footage of the Grateful Dead trying to play “Who Do You Love” while being heavily dosed on Owsley’s Orange Sunshine Superman LSD at an Acid Test/Trips Festival happening in San Fransisco…. HEAR! GRATEFUL DEAD – ACID TEST/TRIPS FESTIVAL 1967 NOW! Glowingly exposed by experimental filmmaker, Robert Nelson, for his unfinished period film “The Grateful Dead”. I guess you’re anointed the title of being an “Experimental Filmmaker” if you start more films than you finish. Right, Jem Cohen?
The "Planet Earth Rock and Roll Orchestra (PERRO)" is a nickname given to a groovy groop of West Coast musicians who recorded together very briefly back in the early 1970s. They were predominantly members of Jefferson Airplane, the Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service, and Crosby, Stills and Nash and Young. Their first album together was "Blows Against The Empire" which was released under the name Jefferson Starship for a myriad of obvious legal reasons. The name reverted back to the Planet Earth Rock and Roll Orchestra for their next record as the "supporting musicians" on what was eventually released as David Crosby's "If I Could Only Remember My Name" album. Hours and hours of rehearsals and recording during the sessions for Crosby's album were taped. Material played during these recorded sessions in 1971 was not just used for Crosby's album (the "PERRO Chorus" is credited on the song, "What Are Their Names") but turned up on several other solo albums after including "Rolling Thunder" the Grateful Dead drummer, Micky Hart's debut solo album, Bob Weir's "Ace" album and Jorma Kaukonen's Hot Tuna debut album, "First Pull Up, Then Pull Down". The name Jefferson Starship was also later used for Paul Kantner and Grace Slick's new band which they formed in 1974. Paul Kantner, never one to leave a good thing alone, recorded a solo album in 1983 as a tribute to this time simply called "Planet Earth Rock and Roll Orchestra". It featured NONE of the original line-up and totally sucks anyway.
