The Beach Boys performing Merle Haggard’s “Okie From Muskogee” live on July 2nd, 1971 at Wollman Rink in Central Park, New York. If you want to hear their version featuring the Grateful Dead (that Mike Love mentions), you can check it out on our Merle Haggard Goes Twang mixtape.  Also-“Heroes and Villains” from the same Central Park concert is after the jump.

Saw the Beach Boys back in 1971 in Montreal in late June. They did Okie and it was great. Came upon it on You Tube from several days later in NYC in early July 1971. Hope the user will put it back on for viewing and listening
