Surf City YouTube

A great video of Jan and Dean singing Surf City on YouTube.

https://youtu.be/nFeUEfpN_yc

It is new to me. No idea what show it was on as the licensing arrangements are unclear to the untutored.

Quality good - the guys look good and, of course, don't take things too seriously.

I wonder if there are other clips yet to be shared? I haver never seen them singing Dead Man's Curve at the time of its release. That would be great. 8)

Thereís a lot of footage we havenít seen. Jan and Arnie has several. Iím pretty sure there is a Heart and Soul appearance thatís not available.

Iíve seen the Surf City shortened clip awhile ago, as well as many other rock bands, I think on Facebook. Itís supposedly from the Red Skelton Show. According to the dates they give on the artists, the J&D Surf City clip is from 1965. Thatís what I would have guessed also. Not sure why they picked a two year old song, but thatís fine. Itís great! Sure wish more appearances would show up. Iíd really like to see their Lloyd Thaxton Shows which most (I think) are in color.
