New Riders Of The Purple Sage Share Live Footage From 1973 Featuring Jerry Garcia
New Riders of The Purple Sage mined their vault for video featuring Jerry Garcia of a performance of “Sea Cruise.” The collaboration took place at San Francisco’s Winterland on December 15, 1973 and has been shared on NRPS’ YouTube channel.
Garcia used a Fender Telecaster for his guest spot with the New Riders at Winterland in 1973. The show came while the Grateful Dead were off the road between tour stops in Atlanta on December 12 and Tampa on December 18. NRPS performed “Sea Cruise” with Garcia towards the end of their set. Frankie Ford scored a hit with the song, which was written by Huey “Piano” Smith & His Clowns, in 1959. Watch the performance of “Sea Cruise” below:
