Nice find. Can't believe they filmed those guys on a boat.

You can see Mick Jagger's influence on Gram at this point of his tenure with the Burrito's as well. I wish more of this content was available for purchase.

I thought Gram was pals with Keef and Mick hated him...Did the Stones not rip all of the country stuff right from Gram?

I gotta go re-read "Hickory Wind" and "Blown Away..."

Steve Pride & His Blood Kin used to do "Brass Buttons" every now and then.

Nice job posting that clip!

Oh yeah, Mick wasn't a huge fan of Gram. However, Gram saw the need to up the stage presence quotient of the Burritos and started wearing more fancy get-ups (scarves, occasional eye make-up)and working stage moves into their act. Chris Hillman commented to this effect in the new Parsons documentary, "Fallen Angel." I definitely want to read those books you reccomended, too. Thanks, Don!

Great find, first time I've ever seen Gram in a video. I just got the Complete Reprise sessions, so I've been playing his music alot lately.
