Alice's Restaurant 50th Anniversary Concert

It was fifty Thanksgivings ago, fifty years ago on Thanksgiving - Arlo Guthrie celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the events that snowballed into the Alice's Restaurant Massacree, his iconic talking blues narrative that has become an established part of the Thanksgiving tradition, with an unprecedented show. Backed by his band of friends, Arlo regales the audience with the Massacree in its entirety, along with many of his best-loved classics. Projected exclusive, rare photos from Guthrie's archives and an amazing lightshow also make for a remarkable multimedia experience. Four-time Emmy® Award-winning director Jim Brown captures this memorable concert commemorating the half-century that has passed since Arlo took out the garbage, landed on the Group W bench, and inspired the Alice's Restaurant Massacree that became an anti-war, anti-stupid national phenomenon.

New holiday tradition!
Review by Amy M. on 12/07/20 review stating New holiday tradition!
For years weve either found the title song on the radio while traveling or listened to it at home on vinyl. But now we get to watch him and the audience singing and share the experience of one of the greatest war protest songs ever. After stuffing, possibly one of the best Thanksgiving traditions ever.

3 out of 4 stars

"Sure to appeal to Baby Boomers and others with an interest in tales from the late 1960s and early '70s, this is recommended." - Video Librarian
