The Life and Times of the Red Dog Saloon (1996)

This documentary pays tribute to the contributions and importance of the title watering hole in the creation of the psychedelic dancehalls that littered the West during the late '60s and helped launch such super groups as The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane and The Quicksilver Messenger Service. The Red Dog Saloon had its genesis in 1964 when a group of free-thinking, LSD-enhanced Northern California students and young folks had a party and began thinking about starting up a saloon that would evoke the old West. They decided to build their saloon in Virginia City, Nevada, a once prosperous town that was by then nearly empty. The ambience of the saloon blended Old West sensibilities with modern psychedelia, go-go girls and plenty of illegal drugs. The film is comprised of interviews with surviving founders, actual archival footage, and even a performance of some of the musicians who appeared there.

The movie The Life and Times of the Red Dog Saloon, released in 1996, features 38 songs from artists like Big Brother and the Holding Company, The Grateful Dead, P.H. Phactor Jug band and Final Solution. What is your favorite song from The Life and Times of the Red Dog Saloon?
