Arlo Guthrie

Arlo Guthrie, American folk singer and son of Woody Guthrie, is perhaps best known for his talking blues song “Alice's Restaurant.” The song's original recording lasts 18 minutes and 20 seconds, though Arlo has been know to lengthen the song to 45 minutes in concert. Based on an actual incident, the song was a scathing indictment of the Vietnam War draft. Arlo also appeared at the 1969 Woodstock Festival in Bethel, New York. What movie launched his acting career?

"You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant." Still play it most every Thanksgiving.

My teachers at school were old hippies. I've heard "Alice's Restaurant", I liked it. I get the pickle reference too: "The Motorcycle Song" I think. Both are funny. Applause

i saw arlo and his band shenandoah at the civic auditorium here in albuquerque in 76-77 (have the ticket stashed away, if you want the exact date)
they were a surprise appearance at a show that headlined the nitty gritty dirt band
arlo came out and said they had gotten into town and gone to a music store where they all bought instruments that were new to them, i can recall a tuba and ??
they played a set and came back at the end to play with the dirt band and others--whoever was the opening band
also had two great shows with pete seeger at tanglewood, unfortunately on cassettes that got worn and eaten by the machine
alice and motorcycle are great, especially extended versions, but hobo's lullaby is his best
