Saturday video break: Friend Of The Devil

A vintage clip of a classic Grateful Dead song:

That video is about three times as long as the studio version of the song, but hey, the Dead were a jam band. Anything less wouldn’t feel right. It’s also interesting that they slowed the tempo down for that performance. That’s the same approach Lyle Lovett took for his cover version.

Love the Red Rocks backdrop. Lovett does an awesome rendition on the tribute CD Deadicated, which you should check out even if you don’t much care for the Dead. The mix of musicians and styles and interpretations is really good. One of my favorite disks.
